The dizzying world of EDM and the freneticism behind it works well with the current generation. Many people have come to adore the hypnotic tunes of this music genre, sending everyone into frenzy after playing just a couple of tracks. Mostly, EDM and electro house music cater to the younger market, making tracks under this realm popular to a plethora of music festivals and other huge music activities.
EDM has established itself onto a pedestal that is loved by so many, transcending the always-changing demands of the industry and remaining as invincible as ever. People have gathered around to feed their ears with sounds that only EDM can supply. Truthfully, it has acquired quite a significant fan base, and it doesn’t show any signs of stopping.
After the tumultuous successes of artists such as Tiesto, David Guetta, Skrillex and Calvin Harris, there’s a plethora of artists and musicians who followed suit but never made it big. Just recently, skirting the edges of this very slippery genre come The Chainsmokers, and with how they are received nowadays, they are projected to continue the legacy of EDM.
Focusing on electro and progressive house music, The Chainsmokers have been a household name to millions of people around the globe due to their charismatic approach in their chosen genre. Furthermore, their passion to perform has been verified through their insistence in being part of the world’s most famous music fests.
Comprised of two talented American-born DJs Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, The Chainsmokers has been sculpting a very bright future ahead of them with their sheer love for music. They started out their journey when New York City-based manager Adam Alpert discovered this terrific duo in 2012.
The Chainsmokers began with their sole purpose of doing remixes from existing indie bands and later on expanded their horizons to swimming with mainstream. Their effort in their early career is shown in the song ‘Erase’, wherein they collaborated with indie artist Priyanka Chopra. The Chainsmokers’ venture with Chopra birthed another single entitled ‘The Rookie’, made public in 2013.
Their first single entitled ‘#Selfie’ is already catchy on its own. It also attracted Dim Mak Records, which aided the duo in re-releasing it in January 2014. The song #Selfie has been so effective in fascinating the EDM crowd that Republic Records picked it up from the radar and exposed it to a larger audience.
Other tracks were released by the American duo, further expanding their fan base through songs like Kanye and Let You Go. Both of the aforementioned tracks were collaborated with established mainstream artists sirenXX and Great Good Fine Ok respectively.
Staying within reach of Adam Alpert, The Chainsmokers signed up with Disruptor Records, a joint venture with Sony Music Entertainment in April 2015. Within this, they were able to come-up with their first EP entitled Bouquet, something idyllic and surreal at the same time.
Bouquet have received fair reviews and managed to stay afloat in the EDM scene with songs New York City, Until You Were Gone, Good Intentions, Waterbed and their currently famous Roses. Rumor has it that The Chainsmokers is bound to release a studio album for their fans in 2016’s second quarter.
