Dance Music Is About Versatility, Says Alex Pall of the Chainsmokers

Today, Chainsmokers is one of the most popular electronic dance music groups that are widely acclaimed for giving the genre a new face. Traditionally, artists of electronic dance music rely on vocalists to give the human touch in their deep and expertly synched beats. The Chainsmokers are, however, reading from a different chapter and their recently released track, closer, speaks of the depths of the Chainsmoker’s new style. The duo, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, feature the talented Halsey in the song closer.

Of much fascination is the fact that Taggart also sings in the track, and his vocals are on point. This has created a resounding buzz in the music industry with many people surprised that Taggart has such strong vocals. Alex Pall says their decision to have Andrew sing in the track, is something they have been planning to do but had not found the right moment until they came up with Closer.

According to Alex Pall, they are way different from other DJ’s who stoically sit behind a booth and craft beats. Pall says that they are out to give their fans thrilling performances and that cannot be done solely behind a booth. That informed their decision to work with authentic artists such as Halsey who bring out the best of their ideas. Alex Pall adds that they feel confident about their new idea to be more expressive in their music. Their two hits, Don’t Let Me Down and Roses, helped them sell their new identity, and Alex is glad that the two songs are such a howling success.

That new identity is more involving, and as Alex says, it gives them more attraction from fans and also lights up their live performances. Chainsmokers are found of writing their songs, and Pall says that Drew wrote the song, Closer, in their tour bus. Having artists who write and produce their songs is not common in the music industry, and for Chainsmokers to have achieved that fete, confirms their status as the most versatile dance music duo. Alex says that they are versatile and not summarized down to one idea, and that is why they are organizing an entire festival, giving their global audience a taste of their new identity.
