The Chain Smokers And Avicii

The Chainsmokers is a group which is a combination of two people Alex Pall and his friend Andrew Taggart. Before they had formed the group, Alex Pall used to be a recognized DJ in New York City and that was what he grew knowing. He attended New York University where he pursued history and music business. Andrew Taggart went to the University of Syracuse and after he completed he went for his internship at Interscope Record. Taggart used to have some DJ interest although he did production and he had managed to release some original songs and uploaded them to a website called Sound Cloud.

There was an earlier group that used to be a formation of Alex Pall and Bixler. After Bixler decided to leave the group, it’s the time when Taggart came from Maine to the City of New York to join Alex Pall. The group was under Alpert who was their manager.

They have had a lot of success in their music career after quieting their earlier job. They passed their music breakthrough in 2014 when they released a song that was called “Selfie”. the song was ranked among the top twenty hits in various countries. They have also been awarded various success like Grammy awards for having done the best dance recording which was held at the 59th award ceremony. They have also been awarded twice in American Music Awards. When we talk about iHeartRadio Awards, the duo has won the title five times.

It was during the Billboard Music Awards when the Sweden talented DJ and producer Avicii was being honored on that day which was on Sunday night. Halsey and the chainsmokers talked about Avicii. The Chainsmokers talked to thousands of people who were gathered there in Las Vegas that Avicii was an artist who brought inspiration to the people who listened to his music in many different ways. He is an artist who meant a lot about EDM community.

When Halsey talked, he said that if there was a person who worked with Avicii, he could have noted that he was a joyful guy and the tragedy was the most painful thing. He reminded everyone who was that to ensure they love their friends and loved ones who have been struggling with mental illness.

Alex Pall and The Drive to Create Music That Gives Meaning to People

As true today as it was when the art of music began to reach commercial popularity, the creation of a song is only successful not in its profit, but in how it touched its listeners. The listeners’ love for the music is translated into their revealed preferences through their purchase of the songs.

It is also good to know that musicians right now understand the importance of this act of deviating a bit from profit and mostly do it for the love and meaning of it. One of the many groups of artists today that offer this kind of approach in music-making is The Chainsmokers. With Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart churning out music every so often, it’s not hard to see that their passion is not just on the money.

The Alex Pall Interview

This act of deviation from profits alone and more on rooting or zeroing in on the act of expression through music can be seen in the Alex Pall interview at the Interview Magazine. We can read and learn a lot about The Chainsmokers from that interview, and one of them would be the fact that it’s the real mission of The Chainsmokers to make their songs as catchy but also an emotionally charged masterpiece of a song as it can be.

We can get a lot of things from listening to music, but Alex Pall and the entire gamut of The Chainsmokers attempts to do more. It wants to put stories in otherwise monotone EDM music. It elevates EDM as a platform for frisson of feelings, and a wonderful set of emotions that can only be experienced through good writing.

We also learned in The Interview Magazine that even as a young kid, Alex Pall is already one who wants to create more art as a DJ. He realized that dance music was the one that gave him meaning, that gave him the drive to achieve more, and that gave him the desire to find the artistic path for his life.

Aside from how they began, it is also in the interview that we learned how Alex makes sure that all the gigs that he does could all contain the kind of music that helps people get the feeling of being alive that is mostly what music wants to always give to mankind.
