The presence of becoming a DJ is sometimes ignored in the music scene, but this is not always the situation when the DJ decides to step up. After the release of the new track “Closer” there were speculations whether or not it’ll be a huge hit. Alex Pall and rest of the group have listened to different genres. It is helpful to them since they can easily adapt and be more creative. During the interview, Pall mentioned that it started out as a hobby or side job then became his ultimate passion. At that time, he had a day job and also working as a DJ with his manager. Then, he was introduced to a guy named Andrew Taggart, and Alex Pall decided to go full-time to pursue his passion for music. As a group, the Chainsmokers have listened to indie, pop, dance music and hip-hop just to name a few. People can say that these are their influences, but listening to their music seems like the group already created a distinct identity. As a DJ himself, Pall sings with the group and music isn’t just staying in the booth while you do your thing.
Songwriting is also their game
According to Pall, many artists today rely too much on their performances as singers but they don’t even try writing their own songs so to speak. The group’s success is mainly based on their stage performances, media appearances and songwriting capabilities. If they can’t write all their songs, some of them can actually help songwriters to fill the gap. It is really impressive that Pall and the group are somewhat hands-on when it comes to the release of the album or anything related to their music.
Alex Pall added that their popularity as a group can also be seen on social media specifically on Instagram. They received positive comments from people who liked their type of music. He added that when there is an increasing popularity, the group must work on producing more music for the benefit of the listeners. As we all know, music evolves and it’s the same thing with technology.
The Chainsmokers has still a long way to go and music creativity is the best way to have more and more listeners.
The chainsmokers brought a music genre that involves playing loud rock music that incorporated the traditional mixes with the modern instruments. Their combinations were unique to the point where they were attracting a considerable number of individuals in their live shows. The two DJs were able to provide some combinations, some of which were very energetic with heavy metal beats that individuals have been. The industry had not witnessed energetic DJs for a more extended period.
The Chainsmokers, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, have a large social media following.

A significant number of individuals have recommended the use of social media in selling many products and services but not music.
The two individuals rose to fame after releasing their hit single, #Selfie, which attracted widespread views and downloads across the country.

Emerging on the top twenty list of much top music in different parts of the world is a clear indication that the song had captured the imagination of many listeners.
Besides producing new music genre that has not been there in the industry for a more extended period, the Chainsmokers are talented individuals who are not only musicians but also DJs. The fact that they are DJs has given them a cutting edge in the competitive music industry. They usually use their DJ styles and creativity to make their music beats rather than use the typical electronic music beats that other musicians use. Both Alex and Taggart make different hits for their music, which makes their song to stand out.
