This post was originally published on this site

Following the hype behind The Chainsmokers’ performance with Halsey at the VMA’s, Alex Pall just opened up about some details regarding the duo’s personal life, and more specifically, Drew Taggart’s relationship with Halsey.

Apparently Drew and his girlfriend parted ways a couple of days after his steamy VMA performance with Halsey. Here’s what Alex Pall had to say in a September interview with Hollywood Life:

“You know, I’m sure that [the VMA performance] factored in. I know his girlfriend, I know her really well and I know he really loves her but I think its just a matter of, things are so hectic right now and sometimes you just feel bad about… I think he feels really guilty about the fact that we’re always away and we’re doing crazy things and like there’s certain opportunities and situations that will be coming up that are going to put a strain on is relationship and I think he wanted to feel guilt free in the stuff he was doing.”

Alex also went on to add:

“I know that for sure we both have a crush on Halsey there’s no doubt about that.”

The Chainsmokers Score Nomination At The American Music Awards

This post was originally published on this site

With the American Music Awards (AMAs) right around the corner, it’s that time of the year where nominations start to flood in. This probably won’t surprise anybody on the planet, but The Chainsmokers might cap off an extraordinary 2016 with a win in the New Artist of The Year category.

Despite making their breakthrough in 2013 with “#Selfie,” awards programs seem to think that The Chainsmokers are brand new and worthy of the title. They were nominated in the same category at the MTV EMAs, but ultimately lost to Zara Larsson.

Voting is open now for fans, but with the actual show set to air on Sunday evening, voting will be closed at 5:59:59PM PST on November, 20th – one hour into the show which will start airing at 5PM PST. Vote here for The Chainsmokers or any of the other nominees for the prestigious award, Alessia Cara, Zayn, Shawn Mendes, or DNCE.

10 things we learned from Mat Zo’s Reddit AMA

This post was originally published on this site

2016 has been a momentous year for the brilliant and multi-faceted producer that is Mat Zo. In the span of 9 months, he’s launched a forum for aspiring producers, conquered the sophomore album slump with Self Assemble, and signed The M Machine onto his Mad Zoo imprint for their upcoming album release. His momentum is hardly slowing down as the year comes to a close — Zo recently unveiled his 3-piece Mad EP, which serves as yet another eclectic and intelligently-written addition to his vast repertoire.

Having just kicked off his fall tour across North America, he donated some personal time with fans in the form of a Reddit AMA. Having combed the list of questions, we’ve compiled 10 things we learned from Mat Zo’s AMA.

  1. The M Machine album will likely see a release next year. Hopefully more Kill The Zo as well.

2. There is definitely potential for another Porter Robinson collaboration. However, a new Arty collaboration is widely unlikely.

3. Mat Zo is a huge Noisia fan, and dreams of a collaboration with them when he’s ready musically to do so.

4. Making 4/4 music is becoming increasingly difficult creatively, as he continues to delve deeper into a left-field, drum ‘n’ bass type of direction.

5. Interestingly, Mat Zo feels inspired to write tracks that contrast with his inner emotions.

6. He ended his Mat Zo Mix series due to creative exhaustion.

7. When feeling stuck, he steps away to refresh his mind rather than trying to force new musical ideas into his head.

8. As far as plugins go, he believes Izotope and Fab Filter deserve more attention.

9. Ironically, one of the best things to happen to him was having his music stolen.

10. He’s given actual thought to the “Mad Zoo” concept.
