Behind the ‘super-natural’ winged creature was a blue moon, obviously indicating that the show would take place at the nights of September 22 and 23 2018.

Alex Pall & Andrew Taggart: An Electronica Match Made In Heaven

From a very early age, Alex Pall has been actively dabbling in the art of being a DJ. What started as a hobby turned quickly into a calling and successful career. In love with dance music and the electronic scene, Andrew Taggart, the (now) other half of the Chainsmokers, was a perfect partner for Pall. Taggart describes his relationship with Pall as “love at first sight” and a fast moving friendship/partnership. The two were able to form a quick bond over their shared ambitions and musical interests. Pall describes his work as a “journey of self-discovery and checking yourself.”

 

Both men spend a lot of time discussing whether or not a concept for a new project “feels right” to them as their gut instincts have proven to be incredibly valuable to their career. What really sets this partnership apart from other DJ’s and electronica groups is that they regularly sing on their own songs and their lyrics reflect a lot of their personal lives. Pall has a keen understanding of what a typical DJ will create; a few dance records and some hit singles but nothing truly outstanding and memorable. Despite fans begging the group to release a new album, the duo wants to ensure their next project is mindful of its message and connections from one song to the next.

 

Collaborating with other artists is a big part of being a DJ and the Chainsmokers are no different. When asked what it was like working with the artist, Halsey on their hit song “Closer,” Pall cannot praise her talent enough. According to Pall, Halsey took a song written on a tour bus between he and Taggart and used her “strong voice” to take it to the next level. It appears this move worked out in pairs favor as it became a top selling single almost overnight. Despite their current success the group understands that in order to continue growing their fan base they must grow as artists and push themselves to continue to break boundaries of the genre.
