the chainsmokers tour – The Chainsmokers In St. Paul, MN

But he had recorded most of his vocals already. Instead, I’m reminded of a different point about fast food: No matter how many new promotions most franchises conceive, the menu is basically the same item over and over again.

THE CHAINSMOKERSAmerican DJ duo The Chainsmokers had a surprise hit with the novelty song ‘#Selfie’ released in 2014. Its members are Alexander Pall and Drew Taggart. Taggart grew up in a small town on the coast of Maine (USA). He was a scholarly teen who founded an investment club for his fellow students to learn about handling money and taxes. Pall is the son of a New York art dealer; he spent his teen years throwing parties.

This Feeling” is another song by The Chainsmokers showing their diversity. The songs feature the iconic synth-pop music of the band with a little country twang sprinkled. A solid blend of vocals with Kelsea Ballerini and leader singer Andrew Taggart during the chorus calls for singing out your heart. This song is sure to help you get into the Musikfest feeling”.

When Drew comes to me with a production that they feel is mostly done, in the first instance it’s my job to poke holes in it, and point out places where I think it can be better. If he agrees, he’ll go back to his Ableton session and he’ll make adjustments, and will export those and I’ll load those back in my session. There’s this expression, ‘We’ll fix it in the mix,’ and sometimes you can, but where possible I prefer to go back to the production session and tweak stuff in that. For example, in ‘Closer’ there was a bass track that I didn’t feel was really working, and we listened to it together and he agreed. So he redid the bass in Ableton, by removing all the attack on it. This softened the bass, and made it sit much better with the kick.

Adapting to the realities of 2016, DJ Swivel does almost all his mixing work from home in the ultimate 21st Century studio, consisting of just a laptop, DAW and monitors. I do still mix in studios, sometimes, and I have friends who own studios, and I will occasionally use theirs, but honestly, I can mix anything in the room I am in right now. I mixed all the Chainsmokers songs here. I really enjoy the convenience of working from home. Yesterday I finished four songs, and I would not have been able to do that in a studio. I woke up, did an edit before breakfast, another edit after breakfast, and so on. I’m very productive in my own home.

Subsequent recordings by the duo displayed a more thoughtful, considered side to The Chainsmokers’ songwriting abilities and the band have been quick to capitalise on their success. The single ‘Paris’ released in early 2017 received over 270 million streams and the official video which featured fashion model Marsha Hunt generated over a million hits on You Tube. The duo continue to rack up impressive statistics amongst their Internet fan base – the single ‘Something Just Like This’, a collaborative effort with Coldplay, received over nine million plays in a single day.

Sometimes, the gizmos and gadgets distracted from the music. But for the most part, the group let the production take over during instrumental breaks where the music could serve as a soundtrack. As photos and videos from the first show of The Chainsmokers’ tour started surfacing online, TOP fans quickly noticed and called them out for the similarities.

Paris” and Something Just Like This” are included, still annoyingly irresistible and suddenly seeming more respectable in contrast to the rest of the tracklist. Vocalist Emily Warren shows up for two more Closer” knockoffs, Don’t Say” and My Type,” which spotlight a relationship’s icy aftermath and fiery first days, respectively, like prequels to the Closer” narrative. Honest,” Young,” and It Won’t Kill Ya” all audaciously return to that same chord progression — We just gotta own that shit,” Taggart sings at one point, as if winking at his audience. Bloodstream” is basically Roses” run through the Closer” filter. Each of these songs has slightly different window dressing, but experienced back to back like this, the creative bankruptcy is staggering.

Got these tickets for a great price and for a friends birthday because she loves the chainsmokers. When I found out Lennon Stella in 5SOS were opening this made it even easier for me to go along with her. we had a great time and I will definitely see them again sometime soon.

In 2014, up-and-coming EDM duo the Chainsmokers unleashed the “#Selfie” heard round the world. The catchy club anthem was an international sensation, taking the world by storm with its hilarious send-up of self-obsessed internet culture and landing on charts around the globe. With their synth-heavy productions, hilarious stage antics, and party-ready DJ sets, the Chainsmokers have quickly become a must-see live act that fans of adrenaline-filled dance music won’t want to miss on tour.

And then there’s the duo’s alarming alignment with bro-country superstars Florida Georgia Line, who, in hindsight, are an even more obvious match for these guys than Coldplay were. It’s not surprising that music’s foremost willfully gauche two-man hit machines would join forces. What is surprising is that they take the opportunity to go full M83. In closing out the album, Last Day Alive” shoots for the stars and at least scrapes the stratosphere, perhaps puncturing the Chainsmokers’ self-imposed bubble along the way. It sounds like drifting off into outer space on a vessel powered by synthesizers, which implies exploration is on the horizon.

Leaning toward more of a synthesized-pop sound, rather than their typical EDM beat drops,” this Chainsmokers song will make you want to sway melodically to the beat, with your lighter cell phone raised in the air. With lyrics like how many likes is my life worth?” this song touches on the need to feel accepted by the world-even when acceptance may come in unrealistic forms, like popularity on social media.

The Chainsmokers, part owner of JAJA Tequila and an American DJ and production duo consisting of Alexander Pall and Andrew Taggart, will host a bottle signing of JAJA Tequila. The duo has won many music awards with their hit songs like Closer” and Don’t Let Me Down”.

Some of the biggest breakthrough tunes of the last few years have come from The Chainsmokers. Among them are Roses,” featuring Rozes, and Closer,” featuring Halsey, which became the longest-running No. 1 single of 2016 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

It worked. Closer” stayed at #1 for 12 straight weeks, one of only 17 songs in history to last that long atop the Hot 100, and was still in the top 10 as recently as last month. It became the Chainsmokers’ signature song and, perhaps to her dismay, Halsey’s too. (Sorry, New Americana ” fans.) At the time it seemed like just one more evolution in the Chainsmokers formula, the added wrinkle this time being the addition of Taggart on vocals. Less than a year later, with the hits piling up and a #1 album imminent, it seems more like the Chainsmokers attaining their final form.

Pall and Taggart spoke with the Free Press ahead of last week’s World War Joy Tour kickoff in Cincinnati. Ultimately, for the World War Joy tour, the Chainsmokers are less a musical act than a spectacle. I give The Chainsmokers’ World War Joy tour at the Mohegan Sun Arena on Sept. 28 3 ½ out of 5 stars.

Speaking of motorcycles in a metal ball, why in the world were motorcycles in a metal ball necessary at a concert? The only other time I’ve seen such a thing was at a circus. Maybe this is just a product of EDM culture, but I believe music should not take a backseat to the stage design and light show at a concert.

Too Much Techno for me so much so that it took me a while to recognized some of their hit songs. If you like musical instruments versus synthesizers and computer generated sounds you will be dissappointed. The cage, motor cycles and flames are for Vagas. For me flames are dated and the ash in the air made it difficult to breathe. It was a dissappointing concert for me considering the i have be to over 30 concerts this year.



PALL: She’s incredible. If you had asked us over the last year who was an artist that we wanted to work with, Halsey was number one on that list. She’s a very cool and unique artist. She has a very strong voice and she’s just very unapologetically her. That’s the kind of artist we like to work with. The song itself is something that Drew and our buddy wrote on our tour bus. We’re just very excited about it because it’s a huge step in the right direction for us as far as Drew singing and the song being produced by us, which is very uncommon nowadays in the music business. And obviously, coming off of songs like Don’t Let Me Down” and Roses,” I feel like it’s a good step from an identity standpoint.

Now, of course, the group’s ambitions are far grander. Having already dominated the radio and streaming game, the Chainsmokers are now setting sights on the live-music experience. To that end, for the duo’s headlining tour, with opening performances from boy band 5 Seconds of Summer and ascendant singer-songwriter Lennon Stella, the Chainsmokers are utilizing levitating stages as well as what they call the Globe of Death,” a 5,000-pound circular structure that will see daredevil motorcyclists riding in circles around the DJ’s as they perform some of their most sonically intense songs.

Finally, there are three ‘air’ tracks, which are yours truly on backing vocals! While mixing I felt that the song needed more air in the background in a number of places, and so I sang this falsetto vocal three times, put Auto-Tune on, the RDe-esser, the SSL Channel, the Doubler, and in once case the Lexicon plate reverb, and the SPL Vitalizer and hall reverb in the other two. The first one sits in the middle and the other two are panned hard left and right around it.


It’s safe to say Pall and his Chainsmokers cohort, Drew Taggart, have made good on that goal. The Chainsmokers’ songs have been streamed upwards of 5 billion times and, according to Forbes 2019 annual list of the highest-paid celebrities, this year the duo dethroned Calvin Harris as the best-compensated DJs on the planet.

The duo wasted no time in announcing their third album, World War Joy , along with their second arena tour set for the Fall of 2019. The first single off the album, Who Do You Love” with Australian pop-rock group 5 Seconds of Summer became an instant hit, rising up the charts and currently peaking at the number 54 position.

Just days before surprising fans at the Chainsmokers concert, Ballerini also surprised an intimate crowd gathered at the Listening Room in Nashville when she turned up to perform a few selections with some of her fellow songwriters.
