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.

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.
