Interview With Chainsmokers Member Alex Pall

In an interview that was carried out by Interview magazine.com, Alex Pall, who is one-half of the alternative pop duo known as The Chainsmokers, spoke about how he got his start in the music business, among other things. He revealed that he became a DJ at an early age first as a hobby, but after showcasing his record spinning skills around the New York area where he lived, he ended up getting a successful career going for himself.

He stated that he later met a college student named Andrew Taggart, who became the other half of The Chainsmokers, after his first partner left the band. Andrew was introduced to Alex Pall by a club manager after he took an interest in the art of DJing and the EDM music genre, and he was later responsible for helping pen their breakout hit Closer, which he co-wrote on a tour bus with another friend. The duo both produced and performed the song, along with featured singer Halsey, who Alex Pall said he enjoyed working with, due to the fact that he thinks she’s cool and unique and has a strong voice, and is unapologetic about her personal style.

The duo has also done background vocals on other music artists’ songs, and Alex Pall says that when he writes songs, he does it according to what he cares about, whether it be his political views or his other passions. When he was asked about what purchases he and Andrew made after their sudden success, he replied that they weren’t the type of guys that like to go out and buy expensive cars. However, he said that he did buy a house in the Hollywood Hills with his earnings, and he let New York interior designer Peti Lau decorate it for him. This unique designer is known for having a distinct style called Aristo Freak, and the singer said that this style is very close to his own.

Alex Pall also told the magazine that The Chainsmokers have been working on a lot more great music that they intend to put out in the near future.

Memories…Do Not Open By The Chainsmokers

Memories…Do Not Open is the perfect blend of dance music. It is an ironic piece of electronic dance music. Art form at the least, is the debut novel of The Chainsmokers. They have worked tirelessly to create a collection of songs that embodies the identity of the group as well as showcased how EDM is here to stay. This album is like no other, is beloved by fans and for over a year took its rightful place as number one. Many artists covet to have their album at the number one spot on Billboard. But only a few get this opportunity. The Chainsmokers were able to experience this as new artists with their first published album.

The Chainsmokers are one of the biggest names on the EDM scene. This kind of music has not always been easy to break into. For years now, this category of music has been controlled by a handful of artists. So, to get the respect of others and to have a debut novel proves that there is room being made for The Chainsmokers.

The Chainsmokers are well liked by fans. They have a personable identity that man music lovers can relate to. Their music is not just about making something that sounds good but making something that has a meaningful story behind it. The two members that make up this group have a passion for the music they create. They are involved in every part of the process of creating their music. From the writing to producing the beats, The Chainsmokers make sure their music is carefully created to meet the musical needs their fans demand.

The Chainsmokers have come a long way since their early days. They met as just young men with dreams. They were able to create beautiful music in Alex Pall’s New York City apartment. They have always been passionate and dedicate writers and music makers. Today, the world is finally able to hear the debut of album of two very hard working dgs that have waited years to see their music reach number one of the Billboard Dance/EDM charts.

The Producer of Reservoir Dogs, Lawrence Bender, Has Had 29 Academy Nominations

Lawrence Bender is one of the most popular contributors to humanitarian and social causes in Hollywood, even being honored by the ACLU with an award. He may be a philanthropist, but his primary title in Hollywood is film producer. He has produced dozens of films; a few of these films have went on to win Oscars. Good Will Hunting has received the most nominations and awards out of all Bender’s films.

In addition to working with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck on Good Will Hunting, Lawrence Bender has worked with    and Samuel L. Jackson on multiple occasions during the production of Tarantino films. Bender and Tarantino created A Band A Part Productions, the company which produced a large portion of Tarantino’s catalog.

The first films the two worked on together was Reservoir Dogs. This movie is about a team of professional thieves, previously strangers to one-another, tasked with robbing a jewelry store by a prominent mob boss. The heist goes wrong as soon as it begins, making it obvious to the group that someone informed the police about the plan. One man, who is revealed to be an undercover cop, is shot by a civilian while running from the heist. The officer is bleeding out in the rendezvous spot for a large portion of the film.

The ending of Reservoir Dogs is one of the most memorable moments in film history, and it would be a shame to give it away here.

Lawrence Bender doesn’t restrict his talents to fiction; he has also worked on a couple of documentaries. One of these films was An Inconvenient Truth. This documentary, which includes narration from Al Gore, raises awareness for climate change. Despite its educational material, the film sold nearly 50 million dollars worth of tickets at the box office.

In total, during Lawrence Bender’s career, his films have received 29 nominations at the Oscars.
