Chainsmokers: How they make their sound

The “Chainsmokers” a New York City E.D.M. DJ duo consisting of two friends Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, have just released a video clip of their latest single on network giant, Facebook. In the clip we get to see firsthand some of the thought and creativity that went into making their latest hit a chart topper. Though it is only a portion of the comprehensive video they plan to release, we are still able to sneak a peak at their production process and what goes into making a hit!

 

The video begins with a shot of Taggart playing a few chords or notes with deep undertones on a large synthesizer and quickly switches over to Pall playing the rhythm on his Grand piano. After he plays a few chords it then jumps to Taggart where we also get to see just how they achieve their desired effect when Taggart records a sound clip on his phone and then shows the viewers how he tweaks the sound to work with the music using a music software.

 

They use a unique blend of recorded soundbites, piano, and synths to achieve their desired effect and in the end, when we are panned out to the final shot of Taggart playing the finished product, we are treated to a shot of Taggart at his computer getting his groove on to the music the pair made.

The two are no strangers to success with Their Single, “Roses” going multiplatinum in several countries and being named number one on the Billboard top dance 100 in 2015 shot them all the way up to instant stardom. Pall even claimed that this one hit single was life-altering for them.

The DJ duo only see the sky being the limit and plan to continue making their music together as a team for some time to come. We can only hope that the Chainsmokers can keep pumping out the hits.
