To celebrate Billboard’s 60th anniversary of the Hot 100 Chart, the music publication decided to publish the biggest hit songs of all time. So what do Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together,” Usher’s “Yeah!,” Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger,” and Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” have in common? They all ranked lower than The Chainsmoker’s hit single “Closer.”
Recently, Forbes Magazine revealed the highest paid DJs of 2018. Many of the DJs on the list are known to be some of the greatest DJs of the decade. Their hard work has surely allowed them to reach their full potential, as well as building up a large profit. Without their work, dance music wouldn’t
The Chainsmokers‘ exclusive one evening only performance at LA’s Hollywood Palladium on July 24 has some wondering whether the DJ duo has ‘something just like this’ in store for fans during the 2019 football season.
A part of Pepsi Co.’s Pepsi Generations Summer Music Campaign, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart’s recent headlining show in The Golden State honored musical icons and past Pepsi commercial stars, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, and Ray Charles. Special guests Kehlani and Max joined The Chainsmokers to deliver renditions of classics from the catalogues of each of the three celebrated artists, and as The Wrap Party Report speculated since, the magnitude of The Chainsmokers’ billing could indicate the pair’s potentiality to be Super Bowl 2019’s half time entertainment.
As The Wrap Party Report proposes, the NFL has selected the artists behind its half time show via a halftime-by-committee process in past years, and could possibly tap The Chainsmokers for the 2019 responsibility if the NFL utilizes this method of entertainment election this year. The NFL customarily reveals the identity of the chosen performer in the opening weeks of the professional football season, meaning that a formal decision is due in the near future.
Dancing Astronaut has reached out to The Chainsmokers for comment, but for now, this is ‘all we know.’
Love them or hate them, there is no denying The Chainsmokers‘ exhilarating music abilities along with their endless versatility in writing and production. Alex Paul and Drew Taggart have made their mark from multiple chart topping singles like “Closer” and “Roses,” to winning a Grammy, two American Music Awards and five iHeart Radio Music Awards. They’ve certainly come a long way from their “Selfie” days.
In their most recent venture, the pair release a five-track pop leaning EP called Sick Boy…Side Effects, which serves as a witty title playing off two of the tracks featured on the work. The EP features four previously released singles, one of which feature’s They.‘s very own Drew Love, and one new one called “Side Effects” featuring the lovely Emily Warren, who was also featured on their album Memories…Do Not Open.
In this tune the guys channel a classic house sound and compound it with a lively bassline, warm atmospherics and a stunning vocal from Emily that captivates from the moment the track starts.
The Chainsmokers have been gaining some serious momentum in 2018. After the latter half of 2017 was spent on the road for the duo, they have hit the ground running with a series of both critically and fan acclaimed singles. The guy’s Ultra set back in March was hailed as a return to former glory
It’s been quite some time since fans have gotten an original from Romanian DJ/producer Boehm. Since the release of “Outside of the Lines,” a successful hit single featuring Laurell, he’s been on a steady remix track, producing official edits for Tritonal, Bingo Players, Olmos, and more.
In releasing “Cool Kidz” on Ultra Music, Boehm has gifted listeners with a fresh new production that is a guaranteed summer crowd-pleaser. The masterpiece is chock-full of lively synths, pitched vocals, and piano riffs, making way for a signature beach playlist spot.
Keep an eye out for new material from Boehm, as there’s an array of heavy weight DJs/artists who have requested official remixes from the producer including Steve Aoki, The Chainsmokers, Charlie Puth, and more. He’s been steadily rising in reputation for his original works as well, which, like “Cool Kidz” often show off his penchant for mellow, yet infectious creations.
The Chainsmokers cannot seem to stay out of the spotlight. Over recent years, the American DJ Duo have taken over the world with their pop drop sound that has captivated all walks of life. The sound that helped to build the EDM brand was cemented when they duo dropped their “Memories Do Not Open” Album
“48 hours ago, I lost control of my car at a very high speed on a gravel road, hitting a tree that flipped me upside down, dragging the side of my face and shoulder against the gravel,” Kramer wrote in an Instagram post. “It peeled my skin right off, leaving me as a bloody mess, screaming for help,” the caption continues.
Kramer goes on to cites struggles with anxiety, depression, and coping with his ailing father’s condition as stressors central to his unsafe conduct behind the wheel.
