The chain-smokers’ release included both Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall. The pair and their DJs mostly depend on vocalists and songwriters to ensure that there is the presence of a human feel in their electronic soundscapes. Their desire to personalize the dance music that they produce supports their desire to be known as real artists. Wanting to expose themselves in every production and their desire to evolve has been key to the work that they do.

Alex Pall’s hobby as a growing young kid was DJing. He mostly did that around New York with a little career beside him. But being a DJ was what he was passionate about. He decided then to concentrate on being a DJ and that is when the same manager he was working with introduced him to Andrew whom they just clicked and started working with. He quit his job and fully immersed himself in music.

After the duo of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart started working together, they were both confident and knew what each had to offer. Their conversations revolved around their interests in music and their childhood hobbies. Then it went into their ambition and efforts on how to be successful. Andrew’s talent in production and Alex’s interest in marketing and DJing made them work hard on music creation and creating their identity. More effort was also put into place since they had to pay bills through their music. Their desire to try new things made their journey bigger and better.

Their ability to sing their songs and especially those that entail about their lives is brought about due to their desire to do an own label. Giving the fans an illustrative and cohesive unit is the driving factor too. Working with Halsey on ‘Closer’ was incredible. Alex describes her as so real with a strong voice and regards her as a unique artist. Pall and Andrew have been changing visuals and live shows to cater for their expanding audiences. Coming up with new, unique and exciting performance shows is the motivating factor to ensure that they stay competitively in the industry.
