Alex Pall is a member of the Chainsmokers, and he has taken his passion for electronic dance music to the absolute heights that you can take it to. Alex has said many times that he used to be a heavy weed smoker, and he said that if it wasn’t for the passion that he had for EDM, he would no longer be here with us on this planet. It takes a special type of person to become a successful musician, and Alex credits his passion for classical music as the spark that led him to being a DJ.
Like most bands, the Chainsmokers did not have an easy road to being successful, they had to weather storms like every other band on the planet, and if it wasn’t for major label support, they would not have been able to make it; but even with major label support, they still had to work hard to make sure that they could produce hit songs. They first started out by working their music throughout small clubs, and later they used the power of the Internet to take their sound nationwide. Once they received their first hit record, they were in demand with the rest of the musical population. After this occurred, Alex Pall was bombarded with request from other musical acts to lend his EDM sound to them and give them an electronic record that would be played around the world.
There are many people who think that they can use a few software programs and make an electronic hit, but in order to make a musical hit a person has to know how to put different musical elements together. The classical music that Alex Pall enjoyed taught him how to put together different musical instruments, and it is the reason why his EDM sound has been around for more than 10 years. The Chainsmokers now have their own studio, and they are helping other DJs achieve their dreams.
