The Chainsmokers began really out of fate, Alex and Andrew where DJ’s as a hobby. The manager and still manager today set them up, and from there magic. Both Andrew and Alex wanted to take their skills further than just a hobby, they wanted to do it professionally. First time meeting went great, and the next day they were working on new material together. Andrews producing skills matched with Alex’s DJ and marketing skills made them the perfect duo.
They worked night and day on songs, and really developed themselves together as artists. To them it’s a job but its much more than that, its a deeper feeling. Music reaches people in a deeper way, so that’s what they try and do. Keeping fresh is the only way to stay relevant in an ever changing business like music.

What makes the Chainsmokers stand out from everyone else is that they started off as a DJ duo. They decided that instead of putting themselves in a box they would expand. Push the boundaries of what they could do and it paid off, that’s when they made two hits “Roses” and “Don’t Let Me Down”. it’s important to stay ahead of the curve. They made those two hits, but have at least one or two years ahead already made. They want people to hear their music for a while before putting out knew.
Chainsmokers are breaking the model of dance music DJ group by making their own music or being apart of it in some way.
Most DJ’s make the beats and the singers make the songs. It’s important to them to be apart of the song, they don’t want to have music that doesn’t represent them at all. All of their songs come from a personal space, and what they think about the world around them.
The Chainsmokers have made a name for themselves by making personalized music. It attracts people especially youth. Demographic for them is sixteen to twenty-five, and reaches from the USA to South Africa. If one thing is certain the Chainsmokers are here to stay fro a while.
