Andrew Taggart was attending college before he had the opportunity to meet Alex Pall. He was living a certain lifestyle, which allowed him to take his interest in DJing to a semi-professional level. Electronic music was not as popular with everyone then as it is today, though he took a heavy interest in it.
He often found himself being made fun of by his college peers for listening to dance music and wearing his v-necks. By the time Taggart left the college scene Avicii’s music was growing popular.
Pursuit of DJing
Making music came to Andrew Taggart early on, but later he got interested in producing his own music, and that awakened in himself a different motive for him to really get into producing. Taggart observed that many of his college peers were getting DJing jobs in New York clubs and colleges.
Taggart was starting to think more and more of those kinds of breaks. Andrew Taggart said he started getting around and pursuing those opportunities, even posted a few songs on SoundCloud. There was enough occasion there that he kept pursuing it.
It became obvious to Andrew Taggart how some of these DJs were becoming successful in these kinds of pursuits and it drew him along in this direction. At the same time, he was starting to be managed by the people of Interscope where he was interning.
The Chainsmokers First Meeting
For a time he attended school in Syracuse and even contemplated moving out to Los Angeles so he could mature into a West Coast DJ. There was a kid working for Adam Alpert, who was managing Alex Pall. The kid encouraged Taggart to meet Alex. This kid told him Alex Pall was looking for someone to replace another musician who was leaving the group and he thought he would fit in well with what Alex was doing. The next thing he knew was that Taggart was taking a bus from Main and went down to meet Alex Pallin New York.
Adam Pall and Andre Taggart, the Chainsmokers, began playing electronic dance Music (EDM) back in 2012, but soon started producing songs under their Interscope Records being managed by Adam Alpert.
The Chainsmokers are American artists who formed a Deejaying duo consisting of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. The music group was brought together in 2012 and is managed by Adam Alpert. In the same year, they were formed, they partnered and recorded with an Indian actress called Priyanka Chopra and made the single “Erase” which was later accompanied by another release named “The Rookie.”
The duo rose to success in 2014 after producing their song “Selfie” which hit the music industry, and it earned them tonnes of fans. The song featured as a top twenty single in several countries, and later they released another song called “Roses” which managed to appear on the US Billboard hot 100 songs which were such an achievement. The duo later produced another hit song “Don’t Let Me Down” which was nominated into the Grammys and the song won in the Grammy Awards as the Best Dance Recording song.
Their song “Closer” managed to become the number one single on the chart, and they have also won two Music awards from the American industry. The duo held their first live performance in September 2014 for Timeflies.
A song that the duo had released by the name “Selfie” was re-written and then re-released by Dim Mak records, and that brought about a life-changing experience for the duo as the single featured in international charts. After the success, they were able to sign contracts with various labels such as Sony Music Entertainment which was overseen by Adam Alpert who was their manager and that was in April 2015.
The group kept releasing hit song after songs such as “Closer” which featured Halsey and it was rated number one in the United States and the United Kingdom. To make matters interesting, the song was further performed at the MTV Video Music Awards, and this shows how successful the duo was doing.
Chainsmokers have kept appearing on the Billboard Charts over and over again because of their releases which capture the attention of millions of their fans, and this is how they manage to rank top most of the times they produce songs. They released their first single in 2018 called “Sick Boy” and fans were thrilled by the song, and their rise to the top is guaranteed.
Recently video blogger Kim Dao put ten of the best Japanese hair care products to the test. She tried treatment products, conditioners and shampoos and reviewed all of them. Kim Dao really likes the Venus Spa Hair Fragrance and they are very popular in Japan (https://www.behance.net/kimdao). These spray in products are hair safe perfumes that eliminate odors the hair can collect throughout the day. These are also wonderful at masking other products you may have put in your hair that do not have such an appealing fragrance. Kim Dao also tested out Tsubaki Sheseido extra moist shampoo. This shampoo is packed with natural ingredients and comes in a beautiful coral colored bottle. Tsubaki translates to Camellia flower in Japanese. It gently cleanses and hydrates hair while it enhances elasticity. In addition to the extra moist shampoo, Kim Dao put Tsubaki Sheseido damage care treatment to the test to see if it really does fight the frizzies. This product targets dryness and split ends and is made with Camellia oils. This product can be used as a daily conditioner but it works best as a hair mask that is massaged into the dry and damaged ends of the hair. Let this product set for a bit before rinsing. One of the top rated Japanese hair sprays is by Kao Keep. It comes in a fun purple spray bottle. Kim Dao has been using this product for a few years and it will keep hair very stiff and in place after hair is styled. More of the top ten Japanese products that Kim Dao reviewed can be found here.
