One of the most successful electronic dance music acts of the 21st-century, The Chainsmokers understand the need for combining style and substance in an eclectic way. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart came together as the most recent incarnation of The Chainsmokers in 2012 when Pall found himself in need of a new DJ partner to further his music career. Taggart had been studying in Maine and was attracting the attention of music executives and management teams when he was introduced to Pall.
The arrival of Andrew Taggart changed the life of Alex Pall as he sensed he had found a collaborator willing to push his dreams in a similar way to himself. As a duo, The Chainsmokers began to move away from simply DJing at some of the hottest locations in New York to craft their own music in a thoughtful and popular style. For Alex Pall, the ability to quit his day job and focus on music was a dream come true and allowed him to further his skills in marketing and brand awareness.
Creating an eclectic style is something The Chainsmokers have proved successful in across a range of different sectors, including the design of the home of Alex Pall which was purchased in 2016. Pall’s property was built in the 1930s to create a stunning midcentury design complimented by a tree growing within the entryway of the home added to with a touch of industrial design crafted in the 1980s and 90s. The architectural choices made by the designers of Alex Pall’s home replicate the style of The Chainsmokers which brings together a range of influences to create a stunning musical catalog.
Downplaying his own role in The Chainsmokers is something Alex Pall likes to do on a regular basis, instead stating he has focused his skills on creating a unique brand for the duo. However, as the founding member of The Chainsmokers, Alex Pall’s skill as a musician should not be underestimated in any way, shape, or form.
