Alex Pall, one-half of the Chainsmokers, recently provided factual information about how he started his career in one of the celebrity magazines in the country. He shares some vital information about his career and his relationship with Andrew Taggart, the other member of the band. This interview came at the best time as a significant number of individuals have been asking a number of questions about how the group comes up with dance and music ideas.
One of the main point in the whole interview is how the band started. He highlights that he was working alone after his partner left to pursue his career as a solo artist. It was his director who proposed that Alex Pall should form a partnership with Andrew Taggart, who was by then working in one of the music and dance studio in New York City.
Surprisingly, as Alex Pall was pursuing his own career in music, Andrew Taggart was also trying to carve out a niche in the industry, which would help him operate efficiently without the extreme competition in the industry. Coming together of the two musicians was the best idea as they had something in common that only needed some polishing and harnessing for it to start shining. Alex highlights that the two had already begun training on some DJ skills, which was an essential step in their musical career.
Alex Pall highlighted in the same interview that the two individuals met as strangers for the first time and they immediately realized that they could work together. There was a sense of positivity in the team, and none of the two members felt that the band was not the right place where they could make serious steps in their music career.
Lastly, Alex Pall notes that the two individuals started brainstorming on tracks and mixing beats that they would later upload them on various sites. This explains why they uploaded their first hit song, Selfie, on social networks before they could officially release it. Alex did reveal not only their success story but also highlighted some of the problems the two are experiencing in electronic dance music such as managing high expectations among others.
