Alex Pall is part of an EDM due called The Chainsmokers. They came out with their breakthrough hit, “#Selfie” in 2015. The song was in the top 10 in singles lists throughout the world. The song had also rocketed them up into the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. iHeart Radio has given them five awards for their talents.
DJing was never new to Alex Pall; he had been DJing for his whole life. He was working alongside another DJ named Rhett Bixler. However, Bixler left and there was a need for another DJ to take his place. The manager, Adam Alpert, told Andrew Taggart about the opportunity. At the time, Taggart lived in the state of Maine. He took transit down to New York to take advantage of the opportunity.
At the time that Alex Pall met Andrew Taggart, Andrew Pall was attending New York University. He was studying the topics of music business and art history. Andrew Taggart was in New York City because he was an intern at Interscope Records. He was a student at Syracuse University.
Andrew joined the duo in 2012. From then on out, they created great music and gained as much experience as possible. In 2012, they worked with Priyanka Chopra, an Indian singer, and came out with an album in 2013.
Alex Pall has been very prosperous through his pursuits as a DJ of EDM music. What really proves his success is that he was able to afford a house in Hollywood Hills. A recent article from the Wall Street journal talks about his lovely home. Built in the thirties, the home has a bungalow feel. However, more features were added to it over the years. Additions from the past 30 years make the house appear a bit industrial.
An interesting development has been an increase in the types of people who listen to them. They have been quite popular with people who are younger than their original audience.
