The Chainsmokers

 

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.

Doug Levitt Sets Out To Find The Real America

The career of Doug Levitt has taken many twists and turns with the musician and artist setting out to find the true heart of the U.S. in a way that reflects the difficulties the majority of the people in the nation face on a regular basis. In the U.S. the majority of people do not use public transport unless they have no other option because of economic or local issues; for this reason, Doug Levitt chose the bus lines of the U.S. as his major source of inspiration for creating “The Greyhound Diaries”.

In developing this artistic movement Doug Levitt has chosen to spend much of the last decade traveling across the U.S. in a bid to talk to those who are forced to ride the bus because of economic issues that are often a true reflection of the nation as a whole. “The Greyhound Diaries” have been a labor of love for Doug Levitt as he has set out to develop a series of recordings, writings, images, and even a YouTube channel based around his experiences traveling over 120,000 miles.

Doug Levitt has often stated he knew very little of the major economic problems facing the people living in the heart of the U.S., a region he believes is often ignored by the majority of media outlets. Levitt lived the majority of his young life in Washington D.C., the capital of the nation where recession is never really a problem as the status of the city makes it a consistent world leader. The family of Doug Levitt have played an important role in the local political landscape with his mother a council member and candidate for mayor.After completing his studies at the London School of Economics, Doug Levitt remained in the U.K. as an international correspondent for some of the world’s leading news organizations; the death of his father is seen as one of the major reasons for the change in career of Doug Levitt as he became a popular artist in many different media.
