Alex Pall is All for Chainsmokers

Collaboration was a huge part of Chainsmokers to actually be the Chainsmokers. Pall says that he knew what he and his partner was going to bring to the table and brought that. He knew that when the pair talked, their tastes were very similar when it came to musically and what it was like growing up. Then, they talked about what they were driven by and what ambitions they have and want to accomplish. They both knew that they wanted something really bad; it was mostly about what they liked musically and what they were into growing up. They both talked about how driven and ambitious they were and how badly they really wanted to create something different. The two were very observant to what was wanted by their community; they both knew what was popular or what worked and what didn’t work. The pair wanted to make a name or identity around what they believe is popular and that is what they did. Drew was a great producer and Pall had his DJ thing going on so promoting themselves was a lot easier to do. Their partnership grew until it was an everyday get together between them to get an image. Alex and his partner did not treat this like a job because it was more than that, but it was a lot of hard work. Having the same core values made them able to push each other to reach their dreams. People relate to the Chainsmokers music on a deeper level because Alex and his partner put their heart and soul into their pieces. The music industry for them is a way to push each other to the very limit of their ability, so it fits the band’s sound, image and where they want to go musically. The two discuss how they feel and put that into their songs and that kind of compassion allowed them to have great success. Alex and his partner continue to want to keep things interesting with their music and try new things always. Their goal is stay current and true to themselves always and so far they have accomplished this goal.

Alex Pall: How to Become a Successful Musician

The Chainsmokers is a phenomenal group who managed to create a dozen songs that would make it to the top billboard list. The group is composed of Alex Pall, who hails from New York, and Drew Taggart, who came from Maine. The two young men share the same passion for music, and it became easy for them to get along. The Chainsmokers are also uploading their music videos simultaneously on their YouTube channel whenever they release a new single. In just a matter of hours, their YouTube videos would record millions of views, thanks to their dedicated fans around the world who are supporting them 24/7.

Before they experienced fame and fortune, Alex Pall and Drew Taggart lived simple lives. Drew Taggart is a local musician from Maine, and he went to New York City after meeting his future manager who was on a trip and spotted him performing. Alex Pall, on the other hand, was art gallery personnel in New York City. It was his day job, and when the night time comes, he fully transforms into a DJ who performs across the city. Alex Pall had fallen in love with creating music ever since he was a child, and he enjoys sharing his craft with other people. Every night, he earns a lot of money just for performing his jam. It came a time when the money that he is earning from being a DJ eclipsed what he was earning on his day job, so to harness his talent, he decided to quit working at the art gallery and focused on being a DJ.

Alex Pall met his future manager while he was performing at a club. The managed loved his music and asked him to join the group that he is trying to create. The group, which will be called The Chainsmokers, was created in 2012, with Alex Pall and Drew Taggart as the major acts who would be composing and performing their songs. They offer a unique beat to their listeners, which gave them the fame that they deserve, but with the addition of “Sick Boy” to their album, the group admitted that they are trying to experiment on other music genres.

Funk Returns to the Charts

Taylor swift has been ousted out of the #1 spot by a song that seemed to come from the 80’s. Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk has become Billboard’s #1 in the Hot 100 chart. The song is unlike any other song from the decade. It has elements of a good 80’s song but has some contemporary elements to it as well.

Mark Ronson talked about how the song was conceived. Bruno used to do this sound check before his gigs and the song kind of picked up from that. The track goes way back while Bruno Mars was still touring. Another odd thing about the song is how it lacks a chorus. This makes the track very unique and had more placed for other exciting parts of the song.Probably the most memorable part of the song is the brass riff. It does not have any vocals but the way it built up to that part made it very exciting and groovy.

The scale used for the song is very basic and only two chords are needed to play the entire track. An interview with a professor on popular music , Christopher Cowdray, reveals some of the reasons why the song is so catchy.
