The Chainsmokers have become a name known by most everyone, only to be outdone in memory by their timeless tracks. With such a chaotic schedule in the studio and while fulfilling their Las Vegas residency, finding the right balance of the most important aspects of life has taken some trial and error to get right. Now it seems, they have worked out the kinks and established a winning combination of personal relationships, professional musician collaborations, and life on tour. Alex Pall and Drew Taggart recently went into depth about how they accomplished this monumental feat that sometimes crushed other celebrities.
The first thing they speak of is finding the right balance between home life and the studio. Taggart states that although he reserves a full-sized studio for more professional chores he has to carry out, he still dedicates a small part of his home to be a creative outlet for when ideas come to mind. This allows them to enter into the studio with a few ideas beforehand, in the event of having to begin a new collaboration with other artists.
Pall went into the difficulties of balancing personal relationships and fame. He states that often times it is next to impossible to meet someone that truly understands the need for separation of the high life and actual realities that come with them, such as having to leave for six weeks on a world tour. Luckily, he has been with his current girlfriend for a couple years now and says they share many similarities that allow for reducing the stresses that come along with life in the public eye.
The Chainsmokers have struck gold in more way than monetarily, although having recently made the Forbes 100 Top Paid DJ’s List of 2018. Making it to number 31 is no small feat either, but having listened to this duo speak about how the good life has affected them, it’s apparent that they have not let the fame and money get the best of them. Their story is only gaining momentum and taking the duo into uncharted territory.
