The Chainsmokers: Live or in the Studio, Always Trying Something New

Alex Pall and Andrew “Drew” Taggart formed the Chainsmokers together in 2012. The DJ/Producer duo began rehearsing in New York after they formed up, playing their debut show in September of 2014 at Terminal 5 as the opening act for Timeflies. Since then they have released a steady stream of songs and albums, often releasing free singles through their band’s website. These singles keep them in the spotlight and allow the duo to explore their various musical interests, while also giving them a lot of open space for collaborating with other musicians.

The Chainsmokers’ newest single, “Side Effects”, was released at the end of July. It features vocals from frequent collaborator and good friend of the duo, Emily Warren. The song is a more upbeat track than most of their recent releases. The duo write music based on what they are experiencing and feeling at the moment, and when it is winter or fall they tend to more subdued and melancholy, something reflected in the music they wrote during the winter. With “Side Effects“, they wanted to shed that trend and get into the bright, upbeat mentality of summer. “Side Effects” is a much more up-tempo songs, influenced heavily by funk and disco music.

In their live performances, the Chainsmokers have been experimenting as well. They began with the two of them behind turntables, spinning records and beats for the crowd. They have grown as performers, often using elements of a more traditional live band for their shows; a drummer is particularly useful for them.

Taggart has also been singing for the crowds. He provided vocals for a few of their songs, but had to transition from singing in a studio to singing live. Taggart embraced the challenge, and spent a year practicing his singing and now not only has confidence in his performance, but enjoys singing for crowds.

The Chainsmokers tour regularly, performing shows as often as they can. They play for huge arena crowds as well as smaller, club-sized venues. They enjoy playing for people who came to have fun and listen to their music.

According to Yahoo, Internet users should highly avoid using Windows XP since this OS is very vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Though this OS was abolished in 2014, an estimated 4.86% of Microsoft users are still using it.

Yahoo also advises each user to be cautious on the files they open. If you have a robust ransomware removal program and you are not careful with the files you open, you may end up installing a ransomware on your PC.
