The most important feature of this interview with Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart of The Chainsmokers is that they are pursuing their musical ventures in unprecedented ways. As you can tell throughout the interview, Pall’s desire and motivation for success is unlike what is seen in many young adults today.
The Chainsmokers desire to go about their business differently than any other DJ’s is what helped them on their road to success, however, it could have hindered their progress if it wasn’t executed correctly. In any business you must seek to be different from your competition, while still taking hold of old ideas that have proven to be successful in the past.

The major difference that we can see between Alex Pall and The Chainsmokers and other popular DJ’s is that they have introduced their own singing onto their tracks. You can easily tell how big of a deal this was for them just judging from how many times they mentioned it in the interview. This is a major way for them to be able to set themselves apart from all other DJ’s right now.
At the time of this interview, there was much anticipation for their new song “Closer”, and since then the song has been tremendously popular for people of all ages. Their recent success must be accredited to their undying motivation for success and their willingness to do whatever it takes. It is very clear in their interview just how much their music means to them, but you can also tell that they want other people to get the same passion from their music that they do.
Their amazing success can be measured from something such as having Halsey sing on their new song. As Pall said in the interview, she was at the top of the list of their people they wanted to work with, and the fact that they made that happen is a testament to all of their hard work and dedication.
