The Chainsmokers are the dynamic DJ and production duo of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart who have been in the scene blurring the lines of pop, dance, indie, and hip hop music since 2012 with their breakthrough song “Selfie”. That song solidified their status in the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) genre in several countries, holding a spot in the top twenty. In 2014 “Kayne” and “Selfie” helped propel them to deal with Sony Music Management. Fast forward, the talented pair have worked with artists including Halsey, an American singer and songwriter also charting the charts, as well as other powerful collaborations including Draya and Rozes.

In 2015 “Good Intentions” was released and “Roses”, which reached top ten on the Billboard Hot 100. “Don’t Let Me Down” followed winning The Chainsmokers the distinguished honor of a Grammy award becoming their top five single. Soon “Closer” sealed the deal with it’s number one place on the charts for twelve weeks. They have also had success with other releases such as “Something Just Like This” featuring Coldplay, earning them numerous honors such as two American Music and five iHeartRadio Music awards. The hits kept coming with the release of “Paris” in 2017 with more than 110 million views on YouTube. That same year they also inked a three year deal with Wynn Nightlife to exclusively perform at Wynn-owned nightclubs XS Las Vegas and Encore Beach Club. Most recently with the 2018 rock infused anthem “Sick Boy”, “You Owe Me”, and “Everyone Hates Me” Billboard took recognition naming The Chainsmokers as number one on their 2018 ranking of dance musicians in Dance 100. Their persistence have also made them one of the most sought out groups, coming in third on Forbes’ World’s Highest Paid DJs list for 2017 with earnings of $38 million!
