The Birth of an Electro Legend: The Story of the Chainsmokers

The Chainsmokers is one of the most successful electronic music groups of the last couple of years. Their tracks have sold for thousands of dollars, and their music is at the top of the most listened music in the electro genre, both at Spotify and iTunes.

It all started as a dream from two DJs who wanted to produce music in the genre. The international success of the Chainsmokers didn’t begin until Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, the duo that began it all, met, with the help of a mutual record manager they had.

Alex Pall was already a DJ by hobby, and he would occasionally perform to his friends and to some strangers, but it wasn’t his full-time job or any serious career path he was already considering. Alex Pall was on the University of New York where he was learning History of Art and more about the industry, and already had a stable job.

Alex Pall, then, started to gain more popularity in the vicinity. The community liked him and encouraged him to find a record manager. DJing was Alex Pall’s biggest passion, and he did want to take it as far as he could, so he did find the manager that would later introduce him to Andrew Taggart.

Andrew Taggart was on the same boat. He was already at college before meeting his future partner and liked electronic music way before electronic became popular. As he loves to remember, he used to be called weird for listening to electronic music, and people thought he probably had some kind of problem. However, with the explosive success of DJs like Avicii and Skrillex, electronic became much more common, and Andrew Taggart started to get interested in the industry, hoping to produce his own tracks and albums.

The dream of the duo became more of a reality than what they initially expected. The pair received awards and nominations recognizing their talent, like the Best Electronic Music Artist nomination from American Music Awards of 2018. Their biggest hits, like “Something Just Like This,” “Closer” and “Don’t Let Me Down” scored millions of downloads and are incredibly famous in pop culture and among enthusiasts.

Third Longest Charter Memories Sets Stage for Chainsmokers New Release

Despite the Chainsmokers moving on to a different sound, their old sound is apparently still as popular as ever. The duo, which according to Alex Pall, decided they wanted to stop making dance music early on. Their debut album, “Memories… Do Not Open” had brought them much success, becoming a number one on the dance charts. To remain relevant the duo decided to evolve. Although since then they have had many charting singles and EPs, their one-and-only album has never left the top five.

“Memories… Do Not Open” has held the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart concurrently since 2016. Billboard’s charts measure the most popular label records for every musical genre out there. “Memories… Do Not Open” is currently enjoying its thirty-fourth non-consecutive turn in the No.1 spot of the dance category. “Demon Days” a popular album by the Gorillaz is also holding this spot. The two albums are currently tied with each holding the same thirty-four turns. Memories shows no sign of slowing down, but Demon Days looks like its may have reached its peak. Many speculate that pretty soon the Chainsmokers album will hold third place alone. It is too soon to wonder if the album will go farther. The question is will the Chainsmokers?

The duo has released three singles in preparation for a new album, the album is called, “Somebody” and it has every possibility of following Memories’ lead. At present the duo is reeling from the success of their singles, “Sick Boy”, “You Owe Me”, and “Everybody Hates Me”. According to the band and numerous sources the singles are leading up to their second studio album titled, “Somebody”. The three singles are examples of the groups new sound, each containing a darker message aimed at present society. The songs’ messages are not typical of EDM, but the Chainsmokers have never been typical. Andrew Taggart took over lead vocals in 2016 with single “Closer”. Most DJ’s do not sing their music so his vocals were an innovation. The duo also takes part in songwriting, which is another innovation.
