Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are known for weaving their humanness into the music they write, as opposed to the coldly calculated beats that bands like Deadmau 5 produce. They seek to open up their personal affairs and cough up their innermost information with each passing song they compose.
Usually, the emotion this style generates is a sense of intense happiness and elation, but The Chainsmokers take on a unique prowess to the art and add in their own flavor to the mix as their audience grows in loyal fans and regular consumers of their craft. Ever since Alex Pall was a kid he would play the disc jockey, which would later form the backbone of his current affairs.
He would love to perform musical notation from the instrument, and it became an activity that gave him immense pleasure, and a specialty in the music scene. Alex Pall used his passion for the DJ to play venues in the hustling and bustling City of New York, which became an amorous occupation of his. Although the gigs alone served a core element to his ardent relationship to music, what added to his already stirring harmonic passion was the adventure of pursuing a fun loving purpose in the midst of an industrious location, where the norm was to work for money rather than to ambitiously leap towards something higher than himself. It was at this point when Alex Pall was laboring in an Art Gallery inside the parameters of New York City, where he learned that his entire desire for cultivating music was so intense, it overpowered his paradigm of working a job to pay the bills for a living. Soon enough as fate has it, his music advisor introduced Andrew Taggart to Alex Pall, and the two quickly adapted to their lucky break to form what is now The Chainsmokers.
