Pall’s ability to grow beyond the backstage as a DJ and work with Taggart in bringing a euphoric feeling to their performances has been commendable surpassing the likes of deadmau5.

He used to DJ around New York City but grew more prominent when he started working with their current manager who later introduced him to Andrew.

Finding their identity in music was their core objective. He also mentions that both their talents, Andrew being a producer and singer, while he as a socially connected DJ in the city made things lighter. They also spent plenty of time together, “It was like, 9 AM to 7 PM…” Pall said. Stating how they covered lots of ground, developing, bettering their skills and learning core values in music.

For both of them, music is more than just a job; but a deeper level of discovery and relating to their audience. Pall gives an example of how before releasing the album, they would discuss, not as a blueprint but how they both feel the music relates to them and the audience. The album containing their music, “Closer” got nominated for Grammy Awards for Best Group Performance/Best Pop Duo confirming Alex Pall’s contribution to the group.
