Before the chainsmokers became famous for their music, Alex pall did DJing as a side job. He loved DJing, but it seemed more like fun than it did a job to him. He finally decided after a while that he wanted to make a career out of his love for music. He let his manager know that he wanted to pursue his dream shortly, and so he did.
Andrew Taggart was in college when his big break came. He wanted to pursue a career in Muci after graduating in the state of Maine, but his big break came sooner than he thought. He was one day told about the chainsmokers needing another member and Andrew instantly sought out after his career. He met Alex’s manager which introduced him to Alex, and they went to his apartment and started creating music. It didn’t take long for them to start creating top chart music.
