How The Chainsmokers Changed EDM-Pop Music

The Chainsmokers is one of the most successful and influential groups in the EDM-Pop music industry.

The Chainsmokers was initially formed by the duo Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, who was already DJing before they even met. Nowadays, the group has a third integrant, Matt McGuire, who is an Australian drummer that has participated in a variety of the recent hits of the band.

The Chainsmokers is highly successful, and they started making their own songs in 2008. Some of their biggest hits include the song “Don’t Let Me Down,” which won the Grammy Award for Best Dance and “Roses,” which reached the Billboard of the Hot 100 songs and climbed all the way to the top 10.

The duo has received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback, nominations and awards because of their excellence as DJs, the amazing music that the group produces and all of the many collaborations and participation with other stars that have drastically improved the songs and created some of the most memorable titles of the EDM genre.

Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall were already working in the industry before they even met. Andrew Taggart was already composing some of his own songs and was already producing and writing them before he met his future partner through a contractor in common.

Alex Pall, on the other hand, had worked as a DJ for a couple of events, but nothing stable, as he already had a full-time job and a career to follow.

After the two DJs met, they knew instantly that their shared passion could drive them to reach a considerable amount of success, but they have admitted that they could never imagine that they would become as famous as they are today.

The Chainsmokers is among the highest-paid DJs in the world according to Forbes’ list, and their spot as the no. 2 is increasing with each passing day since their debut album “Memories… Do Not Open.”

“Don’t Let Me Down” is just one of the many hits that have given The Chainsmokers a lot of influence in the genre. “Closer,” was an overwhelming success and “Something Just Like This,” released in 2017 through a collaboration with the also-famous band Coldplay, hit the charts of the US Billboards and continued among the top 10 for days on.
