Alex Pall Discusses Chainsmokers In New Interview

It’s not always easy adjusting to abrupt fame, especially when it occurs practically overnight and yet somehow the Chainsmokers seem to be taking it all in stride. So how have they managed to balance their renown while still staying down to earth? Mathias Rosenzweig recently caught up with Alex Pall to discuss how they’ve managed to stay at the top of their game for so long and where they would like to go with their careers in the future. The two first got their start in the big apple after Pall’s manager introduced them and they instantly recognized how compatible they are. They began making music together soon afterward and, before long, their first hit single had dropped, thereby gaining international fame and selling over 4 million copies worldwide.

One thing led to another and, before either of them knew what was happening, the Chainsmokers had become a household name. Their international acclaim and success eventually led to their collaboration with Halsey. When discussing that experience, he mentioned that she was a fun and cool person to work with who doesn’t capitulate to conformity. Their fanbase used to consist mostly of teenagers and young adults but it has since grown to incorporate people of all genders and ages. Additionally, they are constantly changing and modifying their concerts as the music industry continues to grow and evolve over the years.

Unlike most other DJs, they actually do provide the vocals on their own music which they insist is necessary due to the fact that the lyrics in their tracks pertain to their lives. One particular point of pride for them is the fact that they do not lip sync at their live performances which is not something that all artists can truthfully say about themselves. As for the future of their career, they plan on sticking around for as long as possible because they know that if they ever take a hiatus, things will be significantly different when they come back. So we wish them the best of luck in the future of their career and hope they are continually successful.

The Chainsmokers Reveal Their Inner Process

The Chainsmokers are an American DJ and production duo, made up by Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. The Chainsmokers first formed in 2012, and they haven’t stopped making music since then. They made their breakthrough into the music world in 2014 with their hit single #Selfie. In 2015, they released their debut EP Bouquet, featuring the single Roses. Since then they have achieved several hit song. Don’t Let Me Down was their first top 5 single, and their first song to win a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. Closer was their first number one single.

Beyond their first Grammy Award, The Chainsmokers have also won several other awards for their music. They have won two American Music Awards and five iHeart Radio Awards. Their second EP Collage was released in November 2016, and their very first debut album, Memories… Do Not Open, came out in April of 2017.

Recently they were asked what the anatomy of a hit song truly was. With so many under their belts, they must be experts on the idea. According to their latest hit, Somebody, a lot of modular synth, and vocals pitched up a bit are what goes into the songs that make our worlds turn.

To answer the questions of how they create their music, The Chainsmokers decided to release a short video of their inside of their studio. This video details how they made Somebody. A lot of it has to do with messing around on a keyboard until they find something that sounds right, but it also involves a normal piano too. They even use their phones to record vocals, and then upload them onto their laptop to edit.

On their laptops they combine all their recorded pieces to edit into the song. They use this program to pitch up vocals, synthesize music, and mix the tracks into what we hear today. Despite how easy Somebody sounds to listen to, a lot of work went into creating the song. Since releasing this short clip, The Chainsmokers have already promised a more intense and longer tutorial on their music making process.
