Chances are that you’ve run into the Chainsmokers if you’ve been to Vegas lately. The American DJ duo has been touring the world playing their catchy hits since their breakthrough smash hit “#Selfie” in 2014. The dance tune poked fun at the vanity of taking pictures of yourself. It reached the top 20 on charts across the world and the track came off their debut EP entitled “Bouquet.”
You would definitely have a good time if you happened to catch this DJ duo in Vegas. Their live show is unlike any other. It fuses live music, vocals, computers and turntable sounds to bring you an energetic and entertaining experience. One of the members, Andrew Taggart, often walks across the DJ table while serenading the crowd. And, of course, the show comes complete with the modern light shows you’ve come to expect from EDM artists.
Fans have been waiting for another smash hit from the duo which has been teased on the Chainsmokers Facebook page. The band has brought fans behind closed doors to show them the making of “Somebody.” The duo included a cheeky video of Andrew Taggart playing different parts of the song on piano, keyboards and a computer. He explains to the camera that the vocals are two parts lower in pitch because they were originally recorded for a different song. You can watch the video to see him play with the pitch to match the sound of “Somebody.”
The Chainsmokers have been on a roll lately. They’ve just come off a smashing performance at Ultra Miami 2018 and have had a second single listened to over 1 billion times on Spotify. And now they’ve been named to Billboards new Dance 100 List. The list tracks the most economically successful dance music asked across the world. The Chainsmokers have reiterated that it is an honor to be included on the list in a video sent out to fans. They even recount a time when they missed out on top 100 lists in other magazines in the past. But this dance duo has come a long way and are now world-famous.
