Chainsmokers were the first DJ/ dance artist to be recognized with the award. Alex and Andrew were happy that their efforts and hard work were appreciated. During the Billboard Music Award, the Chainsmokers paid tribute to the pop music star Avicii. The duo expressed their sadness on the passing of the most influential music star. Andrew Taggart said his death was a great loss for the music industry as he was a nobleman who was sought after by many upcoming musicians and inspired many people in different ways. Andrew and Alex have remained focused on their music production career to ensure maximum entertainment for their fans.
Pall and Taggart of the Chainsmokers are working to reveal themselves more in their upcoming music. Unlike many modern DJs, the Chainsmokers do not rely on the talents on songwriters and vocalists. Instead, they utilize their own talents to write songs and introduce themselves to listeners. The Chainsmokers provide an emotional element to their songs that has long been forgotten in the music industry. Their evolving identity is evident in their new track “Closer” featuring Halsey. This is a time of growth and development for the Chainsmokers.
Alex provides insight into the birth of the Chainsmokers: the merging of the two minds of Alex and Drew. Alex had DJed as a hobby for a long time. He was DJing in New York as a side project when he was struck with the thought that he needed to pursue dance music while at an art gallery. This thought prompted his introduction to Drew. They met and immediately started working. Not long after Alex moved to Maine and quit his job. This was a risky decision that emerged into a promising future.
Andrew has happy memories about meeting Alex as well. When he met college he was in college preparing to make a decision about what to do after he graduates. One of his top options for the future was moving to L.A. to DJ, but that all changed when he met Alex. He describes their first meeting as love at first site. They started playing together the following day and have been for four years.
Alex and Andrew acknowledge that they are somewhat unique because they are among the limited few in their genre who write their own songs. Andrew and Alex feel a need to create albums that are genuine and related. They do not want to create an album of ten to twelve songs that have no relation to one another.
The Chainsmokers are also now working with artists that help establish their identity. They have thoroughly enjoyed working with Halsey and find her to be a unique and cool artist with a strong voice.
Expect to see more of the emotionally charged work of the Chainsmokers in the future.
