When Andrew Taggart and Adam Pall came together to solidify their EDM-Pop group in 2012 little did they know what string of hits would flow from their studio. The Chainsmokers are becoming more mature after each release and are finding it easier to express the true essence of their sound as they dig deeper to come to the core of their sound. It began in 2012 when Adam Alpert arranged a meet between Taggart and Pall. One of the members of the band had left the group and they were looking for a replacement.
Taggart was at the time also looking to play more DJing gigs until the two came together and good things have come from their collaboration since then. Both Pall and Taggart believe their success comes from begin at the right place at the right time and doing everything they can to make it work. After more than eleven of their songs reaching status at the top of the charts they are a force to be watched for in today’s music scene. The Duo credits Avicii as one of the influences of their sound.
