Alex Pall is one of the duo that makes up The Chainsmokers, one of today’s most famous EDM music production crews. There is so much history and achievement in the musical career of The Chainsmokers, and this would not have been possible without Alex Pall’s contribution.
We can learn so much about the history of both Alex Pall and The Chainsmokers in the recent interview he did with The Interview Magazine. In the interview, it is revealed that one of the most famous songs of The Chainsmokers is the track “Closer,” which features Halsey, one of today’s hottest vocalists. This song is extra special because this is the first time that Andrew Taggart would be involved in the original vocals of the song. This isn’t typical of The Chainsmokers, but it should be said that DJs who sing to their beats is already an established pattern in the world of EDM.
What also makes Alex Pall stand out among all the EDM music producers today is that he wants to add intimacy to the world of EDM music. While EDM artists like deadmau5 are trying to keep themselves in the background, Alex Pall wants always to put themselves in front, to show intimacy in their craft and exude emotion that is not done by many.
The musical background in DJ production of Alex Pall also started when he was still young. He was interested in dance music ever since as a kid, and when he went to college, he just went on to master his skills in producing DJ music.
It is also such a great opportunity for Alex Pall to work with rising artists such as Halsey. Alex Pall thinks that Halsey is one of the most distinguished artists today, with a voice that’s so strong and distinct that it’s a no-brainer to decide to work with her for a collaboration. The work that Alex and Andrew Taggart did with Halsey is also a good step away from the identity that they had built with their previous songs. There’s more to EDM than just beats and bass hits, and it’s good to know that Alex Pall is exploring all these other areas.
