Alex Pall is however not just “a half duo” in the group, for he is more than just a DJ sitting behind the booth. Unlike most electronic and dance music groups and songs, Alex brings in his personality into the music through beats which are captivating to the audience. Alex Pall’s ability to incorporate other different styles of musicians like the 20-year-old songwriter, Ashley Frangipane, better known as Halsey is incredible.

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. According to an interview conducted by Mathias Rosenzweig, Pall stated that dance music and DJing has always been his passion. 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.

Alex Pall added that their music-related friendship kicked off soon after meeting as they regularly discussed music trends and their passions. 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.

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.

The release of the new track is just what Chainsmokers have been anticipating. It has been a while since the Chainsmokers duo landed such an excellent breakthrough on their releases. The new hit track features the band’s current star, Halsey. However, the contribution of Andrew Taggart in the song is a major achievement for the band in this particular release.

The band aims at customizing their brand name and bringing about their acknowledgment as real artists who have excellent skills in expressing their ideas. The duo is working towards unleashing their great skills each day. The move is unique as compared to the common trend where some artists just prefer to perform behind big music drops. At an important interview, the two cited issues surrounding their new track. Additionally, they touched on their career fulfillment as well as future plans for their extensive audience in the industry.

According to Alex Pall, he owes the success of his music career to the DJing passion from a young age. He would spend most of his time as a DJ around New York City. It was at one time when he was at an art gallery when he decided to pursue dance music. In this line of work, Alex’s manager at that time Adam Alpert introduced him to Andrew in 2012. Since then, their journey together has been fruitful.

On the other hand, Taggart had a great passion for DJing and electronic music. His presence was a perfect match for Alex’s career. The music ambitions and future goals of the duo acted as the driving force towards realizing their dreams. It was also vital in establishing themselves in the music industry. Alex Pall adds that his impeccable marketing skills and connections in securing DJ gigs were quite helpful in the band’s brand establishment. Moreover, Andrew’s production expertise greatly enhanced their success.



Pall cities that being a DJ duo and performing in the electronic pop music genre is quite fulfilling but at the same time challenging. Establishing a strong brand name in the highly competitive market requires absolute hard work and commitment. Nonetheless, he notes that what matters is the quality work released to the customer at the end. Pall also insists on the value of differentiating themselves and setting a gap between other brands in the market. The Chainsmokers seeks to perform on the basis of their terms and purpose not by what others are offering in the industry. The duo has bagged several prestigious awards in the industry which is a solid proof of their many milestones.
