The Chainsmokers: A Duo Defining Their Own Brand for Success

It has been nothing but success for the music group, the Chainsmokers ever since they released the singles like “Roses” “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Closer.” Their dream of personalizing their brand and becoming distinguished as real artists is no doubt on the right track.

The track Closer featured Andrew Taggart singing – part of the duo with Alex Pall. The two, unlike other artists who might hide from the thick synths of music and the conspicuous drops, strive to reveal themselves each day. They bring intimacy and weave splendor into the otherwise emotion-elusive music genre.

Really happy!! These sort of days mean the world to me!

Asked in an interview how they started working together, Alex Pall noted that as a DJ who’d realized how dance music was consuming him while growing up, he met Andrew Taggart – who’d taken a liking to electronic music way before it was popular – through their manager. He quit his job and hence began their career.

The duo said that they knew everything would work out if they collaborated. Driven by their ambition to be unique, they utilized the gap in the industry and not wanting to treat their work as an actual job, it was their core values that brought them success.

According to Taggart, being a DJ duo in the electronic genre is neither easy nor hard. He says that there are productions that sound like other popular music out there and artists are so competitive. As a result, the two resolved to marry pop, indie, dance, and hip-hop together. This is their secret to why they’ve come so far.

Although the duo works with other songwriters, the songs are about them. Working with Halsey was a great achievement for them and they had always admired her. The song “Closer” as Pall says was something Andrew and another friend wrote on a tour bus.

Over the years, the duo has realized a global reach and Pall and Andrew couldn’t be gladder than having to perform in front of more than 30 people. The duo said that they are looking to push boundaries and bring excitement and something new in every live show.

They are incorporating new and unique visuals that define who they are and their beautiful music. As such, they have new content created every time they have a show, and from each performance, you can tell that it is worth the effort.

Chainsmokers, Progress

With all of the hype surrounding the social media platforms Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall have something else to say about the matter. They both love electronic dance music but have chosen to use this for speaking about the problem of social media and how it negatively affects the people who indulge in such practices as trying to get as much attention as possible from the masses on networking platforms such as Facebook which is an easy trap to fall into, but this is the reason they have taken it upon themselves to address what it was that has taken so many people hostage into its deceptive grasp. Their new song Sick Boy has a lot to say about the matter and the issue has even been a source of inspiration to the Chainsmokers into their music career, because not many disk jockeys have the privilege and honor to speak about things that impact the world so thoroughly. They have toured globally and internationally and have earned themselves over fifty million dollars in revenue with their released songwriting skills. The crowds love them and it is inspiring to those who see themselves as artists with capabilities which are similar to The Chainsmokers. Yes, they have also recruited several other people to collaborate with them in order that there might be someone to accompany their beats and unique soundscape with various vocal recording that separate them from the average disk jockey and electronic dance music group. The reason they are so curiously peculiar is that they stand on the lines of hip hop, dance, and indie music as well as their homage to electronic dance music. This puts a unique spin on the current music out today and it also gives them an edge when combined with the hard work that most other artists fail to be entirely consistent with. Yes, The Chainsmokers have earned their place in the world today and it is a pleasure for many to listen to their work of creativity that inspires others to go and hone in on some of the more positive values that Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart push into the world.

Lawrence Bender’s Life Before Good Will Hunting

Lawrence Bender is arguably one of the greatest film producers of our time. He has created such wonderful works like Inglorious Basterds, Pulp Fiction, and Good Will Hunting. However, he was never really into the arts growing up. Compared to other film producers, he discovered his love for it relatively late.

Lawrence Bender was born in The Bronx, New York City, New York to a Jewish family. As he proceeded through the school system, it was his goal to become a civil engineer. He knew that there were great jobs in that field and he also wanted to pursue it because his grandfather was a civil engineer. After graduating from high school, Lawrence Bender enrolled at the University of Maine to pursue a degree in civil engineering. He did just that, graduating in 1979.

Lawrence Bender had his first taste of the arts while he was in college. He really started to get into dancing. His new goal was to become a professional dancer. Unfortunately, a very bad injury permanently sidelined him from his dream. This is when Bender transitioned over into the film industry.

Like I said earlier, Bender has created wonderful works but my favorite would have to go to Good Will Hunting. In the film, Will Hunting grows up in an abusive orphanage with only his brothers there to support him. This created a lot of resentment and anger in Will at a very young age. This abuse was both emotional and physical.

As Will got older, he picked up a job as a janitor at MIT. He worked the late shift. One night while cleaning the hallway, he solved a very difficult problem that surprised both the faculty and students alike. He was later tracked down by the professor, Sean Maguire. Maguire acted as the mentor and father figure that Will never had. He guided him through some of life’s toughest challenges, helping him get over his past and better his relationship with his girlfriend, Skylar. All in all, I love this movie because of the challenges Will has to constantly overcome. It is a great movie from a great film producer.

Desiree Perez Is There To See The Deal Between Live Nation And Jay Z Coming To A Close

The ten-year, $150 million deal in 2008 between Jay Z and Live Nation is ending. This may result in a buy-sell situation since either party could buy the company, or sell their stake. According to sources, Jay Z plans to leave the recorded side of music. An insider confirmed the deal is not being extended, and Live Nation no longer buys recorded music. The artists in Roc Nation include Shakira, Meek Mill, Fat Joe, Jay Z, and Rihanna.

Desiree Perez is Jay Z’s top executive at Roc Nation. Her meeting with the CEO and Chairman of the Universal Music Group, Lucian Grainge, led to speculation about UMG purchasing a stake in the company. This would enable Jay Z to develop additional artists. Insiders at UMG say there is already a distribution deal between the company and Roc Nation. If they agreed to a larger investment, UMG would have a bigger stake in the artists at Roc Nation.

According to an insider at UMG, the partnership already holds enough significance. Despite this, it was stated furthering business with Jay Z would be great. The end of the deal with Roc Nation has not yet been discussed at UMG. The reps for Universal, Live Nation, Roc Nation, and Jay Z all failed to comment.

Desiree Perez has served ROC Nation as the Chief Operating Officer since 2009. As one of the members of the team, she is involved in numerous areas including publishing, management, and labeling operations. She negotiated Rihanna’s deal with Samsung, and is considered an extremely tough negotiator. As a woman in a field mainly dominated by men, Desiree Perez has still managed to become successful. She is one of Jay Z’s closest associates, and has been for nearly twenty years. Her track record regarding running SC Enterprises is incredibly long. and Follow him Twitter.com
