Let’s all party as Globe brings The Chainsmokers to Manila this August 19! Don’t miss out on this wonderful experience especially when Globe is giving you the awesome chance to win tickets to watch them LIVE at the MOA Concert Grounds!
From ground-breaking performances, addicting productions, and a world tour running currently, these two gents have been storming each country one sold out concert at a time.
Before we see them live, get to know American DJ duo Andrew “Drew” Taggart and Alex Pall a little bit more and find out how this duo came to be!
- The name “Chainsmokers” came up because it sounded clever. Nothing else. Their name didn’t actually have any historical background or any sentimental meaning for them. No one could’ve imagined that it would get this big and awesome for them, right? I mean, 443,792,938 views just for one track? How awesome could they get!
2. Soundcloud was the first home of The Chainsmokers
The Chainsmokers used to upload their tracks in Soundcloud – a social platform for music artists who share, promote, upload, record and distribute their music to the world.
They even collaborated with Priyanka Chopra back in 2012. In case you haven’t heard it yet, here you go!
3. The Chainsmokers drown in steak or espressos before getting on stage.
Before any show, some artists have vocal warm ups or literally break down into all fours and do push ups. This duo is a different scenario. Imagine them having a few drinks (or a lot in a number of shows), punching each other in the face or drowning themselves with either steak or espressos before they turn the stage upside down. Whatever makes them hype the party monsters in them for a massive and unforgettable moment upstage definitely seems to work!
4. Sing their track “Roses” right!
Their biggest track of 2015, “Roses,” was the anthem of every soiree you could think of! Hey, it was our Sinulog 2016 theme song! But we just can’t help but cringe everytime someone sings it differently. Gah! Guys – see below.
Take it slow, but it’s not typical
He already knows my love is fine
His heart’s of stone, his hands roam
I told him to go, but he took it hard
Taking it slow, but it’s not typical
He already knows that my love is fire
His heart was a stone, but then his hands roamed
I turned him to gold and it took him higher
5. Never bestfriends. Nor long-term Facebook buddies.
Before all the music, the parties, and the mixing, they were total strangers to each other with only one common friend.
Who would’ve thought that these two would be selling thousands of copies after just sharing the same passion for music! Even if Drew was mostly into pop tracks and Alex was the one DJing in New York, they still find themselves doing more legit tracks together after two months of mashing mixes.
When they’re not in the music scene, what do these two actually do with their lives? These two have a different side that we don’t usually get to see! Alex is a bookworm who loves to read novels while Drew loves video games. Nope – they don’t have to do everything together.
7. They take inspiration from anything and everything
These hitmakers do not pick and choose the kind of music they produce. As they say, a person born out of music produces the kind of music that inspires them. They have the passion for the art and this varies from different genres and music types. They wish to continue to evolve as performers and to be off inspiration as well to aspiring musicians. They continue with their mission which is to just mix what they think is fun!
