It may be 2018 for the rest of world but it feels like 2016 for the Chainsmokers. The dynamic duo from New York just garnered a fresh accolade with hit single “Closer” gaining diamond certification. The news comes right on the heels of their one-and-only studio album nabbing third longest-running non-consecutive No.1 for Billboard’s Top 100. The pair of triumphs definitely prove that 2016 was a banner year for Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. The two gained notoriety with their breakout single “#Selfie” in 2014, but 2016 is the year they became artist. Pall spoke about it in length during an interview conducted that same year. Oddly enough, this dalliance with interview magazine came as direct result of “Closer”.
The whole event was conducted by Mathias Rosenwieg. It is definately loaded with foreshadowing as he asks the duo about their plans for the future. He starts in the typical way with some background. Pall responds by telling his story. Apparently, become a DJ was something he fell into. He had fun doing it, and started to take it more seriously when he realized it was all he was doing. His introduction to Taggart linked with a link-minded artists and the two have been on the same page ever since. Both Pall and Taggart stated that they work hard to remain relevant and present something new. Naturally, the conversation drifted to their unorthodox style.
It may be old hat now, but in 2016 the Chainsmokers were still considered EDM. Songs like “Closer” made the transition to an EDM-infused pop, but at the time the duo was breaking new ground. They were involved in songwriting, and Taggart was taking over lead vocals. As EDM DJs do not typically do this many were wondering where the Chainsmokers were going. Pall answered this clearly, “We have reached the point where we want to establish who we are and create a unified body of work to illustrates that”. Basically, they want to be recognized as artists not remixers. In a genre rife with a dozen covers of the same source music, Pall and Taggart wanted to stand out as legitimate artists.
