The Chainsmokers unique way of creating music and genre-defying songs have set them apart in the music world. Alex Pall of the Chainsmokers has been a DJ his whole life, in 2012 he discovered his passion, creating dance music. This led him to quit his job being a DJ to pursue his dreams and become one of the greatest musical creators in the world. Pall along with fellow music creator Andrew Taggart created their duo The Chainsmokers which has taken over pop music in the past few years. Taggart had loved dance music long before it became a major trend, and jumped at the chance to produce this music with Pall.
Over the past few years, this music duo has grown more than they ever could have imagined. The two have studied pop and dance music, and what it takes to make a great artist. Their passion has allowed them to create music which went from just paying their bills to slingshotting them to the world stage.
The Chainsmokers are far different from most traditional artists, being a DJ duo as well as music producers has set them apart from other similar artists. The pairs decision to branch out from just making dance music is what allowed them to grow as much as they did.
Their music style doesn’t fit into any one genre, a mix of indie, pop, dance, and hip-hop has proven to be very successful for them. Learning to sing over their beats has also worked very well for the duo. Originally, just creating the beats and having others add their own personal elements and singing the songs was the only way this duo knew to make music. But learning how to sing and truly make the songs the way they intend them to be, adding their own personal element has greatly helped the duo.
Over the past few years, The Chainsmokers have become staples in the music world, getting a feature from pop star Halsey has helped the band explode in popularity. Now that the duo can sing, we get to see the true originality in these songs. Hopefully, we get to see more of this boundary-pushing music in the coming years.
