Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart Push the Boundaries as the Chainsmokers

DJ duo the Chainsmokers is comprised of Alex Pall and Andrew “Drew” Taggart. The New York duo formed together after being introduced by band manager and mutual friend Adam Alpert. both men worked in art museums, as did Alpert. Pall and Taggart were both seeking to expand their DJ careers into full-time jobs and Alpert felt they could help each other. Pall and Taggart hit it off quickly and easily, and the Chainsmokers was formed. Both men quit their day jobs, Taggart moved to New York from his home in Maine, and the Chainsmokers began rehearsing together daily for over a year before making their live debut opening for Timeflies at Terminal 5 in New York.

Since then the Chainsmokers have released several EPs, a full length album (with another in the works, expected soon), and numerous singles. They release singles at regular intervals, helping keep their name in the music scene at all times with a steady flow of new music. They release their singles for free via their website.

These singles have more than a marketing purpose: They also allow Pall and Taggart to explore collaborations with other musicians and bring elements from other genres of music that they enjoy into their own music, stepping outside the boundaries of traditional dance/electronic.

Other ways the Chainsmokers push beyond the boundaries of dance/electronic include providing vocals for their own songs, many of which have an emotional theme and deal with the issues Pall and Taggart are dealing with in their lives at the time of the writing. Most dance/electronic rests on the laurels of the beats and hooks and the Chainsmokers, though providing those things in songs, want to bring some deeper emotional context to their music.

The Chainsmokers also integrate live instruments into their performances, giving the audience more of a band experience. The shows began bringing in live instruments when the Chainsmokers began performing their singing parts live, finding the use of instruments easier and more natural than singing to a recording, though they often DJ live, especially when they have a stage guest.
