The Serious Artist Inside The Beats Maker Reputation of Alex Pall

The Interview Magazine revealed that Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers is now getting himself more serious into EDM. He wants to change it, revolutionize it and along with his partner Andrew Taggart, he would be creating the kind of music that they themselves would be singing to. And this is just the start.

 

People also learned from The Interview Magazine that Pall and Taggart of The Chainsmokers are already pushing the boundaries of EDM. Their music are putting more focus on lyrics. While others just want to stick to beats, their music is admirable in its ambition to put better lyrics in them. WIth the success of The Chainsmokers in fantastic singles, such as “Roses”, “Don’t Let Me Down” and collaborations with fellow artists like Halsey, there’s little doubt that there’s still more in the line-up of Pall today.

 

The good thing in the evolution of the music-writing skills of Pall is the fact that he’s still trying his best to improve the productions that he does during concerts. When others just want to stick to EDM dance beats and tracks that people can dance to, Pall wants to create electronic soundscapes and other masterful tricks to give their listeners the experience that they never had before. It is the passion of Pall to articulate his feelings through his music, and he wouldn’t be able to do this without doing the production style above.

 

There’s also the admirable foray of the band right now into making a stamp in the history of serious artists who have something to say. EDM is a platform that has not been taken advantage of that much, and Pall seems to see it his duty to make sure that he can maximize the platform to full potential.

 

People who read the excerpt of the Interview also learned that Pall has a lot of respect for his partner, Taggart. He believes that Taggart has such a fantastic talent for producing DJ and how to market the music to the right kind of people. This means that the combo of Taggart’s talent and songwriting skills of Pall can sustain the kind of dignified, growing and far-reaching potentials of The Chainsmokers.
