The Chainsmokers is one of the hottest – both in terms of popularity and physical appearance – music acts across North America. Consisting of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggert, The Chainsmokers first got a real taste of fame in late 2015 with the group’s release of Bouquet, an extended play – a collection of music similar to an album, though extended plays (EP) are much shorter than albums and typically tide listeners over during the production of full-fledged albums – that included “Roses,” landing studs Pall and Taggert a spot atop the top tenth of songs on the United States’ Billboard Top 100 list.
Over the past two-and-a-half years, give or take, The Chainsmokers has cemented itself as one of the greatest modern music producers across the entire modern music industry.
“Closer,” measurably The Chainsmokers’ hottest hit to date, was released just months ago and featured the likes of Halsey, similarly one of the most popular acts out in the mid-2010s.
Just like practically all popular music groups, The Chainsmokers are constantly bombarded with interview requests. When the musical pair feels like sharing their personal, musical, and business lives with the world, they tend to give access to the hottest publications across the World Wide Web.
Mathias Rosenzweig of Interview Magazine, a production with a self-explanatory name that was created by Andy Warhol, was lucky enough to join Alex Pall and Andrew Taggert of The Chainsmokers for an exclusive, hot interview that made thousands of rounds across the World Wide Web.
Alex Pall told the interviewer – fittingly, again, of Interview Magazine – that he had practiced his skills as a disk jockey for more than a decade throughout the Big Apple – also known as New York City, New York.
When he was able to sneak his underage self into venues and perform for crowds, he felt the most valuable learning experiences of his life came throughout that period in high school when he tried his hardest to get his name out through actually performing for crowds.
When Pall met Taggert, Alex soon after quit his job; the rest is history, as the adage goes.
