Alex Pall Puts Himself into The Chainsmokers’ Music

The Chainsmokers have released several hits like “Roses”, “Don’t Let Me Down”, and “Closer” featuring Halsey. Much of their success can be attributed to the heart they put into their songs, a trait that is rather rare among dance music. In a sea of sterile music with no feeling in it besides euphoria-inducing bass drops and beats, Chainsmokers’ Alex Pall, enjoys putting a human element into his music with Andrew Taggart.


Alex Pall was a relatively well-known DJ in the New York club scene in his younger years before the Chainsmokers. His at the time hobby began consuming more and more of his time but he couldn’t consider his music a job as he enjoyed it far too much. Eventually, he realized he wanted to make his hobby his full-time commitment and spoke to his manager, the same manager he has now even after he found success. His manager introduced him to Andrew Taggart and the two knew they needed to make music together. They shared music tastes and hit it off as people, so they immediately started working together. They clicked so well, in fact, that Alex Pell quit his job and Drew relocated from Maine to New York City to pursue their dream.


Another relatively unique aspect of Alex Pall’s Chainsmokers is that they do not rely entirely on songwriters and vocalists and put their own talent and voices into the music that they produce. When Alex Pall and Drew aren’t writing the entirety of the song, they are there with the songwriters for the entire process to give them their input or guide them to personalize the songs, so they fit who the pair are as people.
