Alex pall grew up as a DJ, which was a hobby during his teenage. He was passionate about DJing and more often would go around New York City doing that he initially thought was a part-time activity. During an interview with Rosenzweig, he reviewed that it was frightening being in the city pursuing what he considered a hobby rather than a job, but eventually, he became an art gallery at that time. The “closer” music singer recognized that dance music was occupying part of his life hence felt the urge to give it a good shot. After he was introduced to Drew by the same manager he is working with, he left his job and started concentrating on his music career.
It was easier for the Chainsmokers duo to work together since each knew what they were bringing on the table. Passion, being ambitious and how badly they wanted to succeed in the career made them work together. Moreover, they were very observant of how those who had been in the industry for long were performing and what worked out for them and what did not. It was just trying to find their voice in the industry. The different backgrounds make them work together so that they could have similar values. This meant that they had to work harder and learn a lot to cover significant ground. He says that it has been a journey of self-actualization and discovery, pushing themselves harder to become better artists.
Alex Pall feels that being in the electronic genre and at the same time a DJ either makes it hard or more comfortable to build stronger indent as an artist. In every style, people often produce stuff that at some time sound similar although the songs are popular. It’s all about finding one’s voice and standing out among millions of individuals competing to be that person. A DJ or producer has to develop their skills to the point that they can produce something that is naturally theirs.
Pall says that the live show and its visuals are forever changing as the number of their audience increases. They have performed global tours around the world, and they make it their responsibility to bring a lively and exciting show. The song “closer” will drastically change the way their play is performed since they will also feature a performance element and Drew sing.
The Chainsmokers type of music is starting to develop a firm connection with its fans. People from all walk of lives have started having a strong sense of their music. Everyone is finding an emotional connection to the music. One of these fans sent them a message saying that her six years old son is even singing the song which makes the duo excited.
