Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers leads an interesting life and has a house to match. The Grammy-award-winner Alex Pall purchased the 1930’s built home in the Hollywood Hills 2 years ago. The 1930’s home features renovations that were made in both the 80’s and the 90’s with an open layout so spacious that a tree grows in the entryway.
While Alex Pall enjoys the mashup with stone fireplaces and slate floors, he wanted help when it came to decorating. To complete this task The Chainsmokers DJ enlisted the help of Peti Lau an accomplished designer from New York. With a style called “AristoFreak”, Lau had been using her unique mix of bohemian and aristocrat in restaurants and homes throughout the United States and Thailand.
Alex Pall’s home was already eclectic in style and she approached each area as its own individual space with its own unique style that still flows together. Alex Pall had already begun decorating his home before she got to work with jungle themed wallpaper and a bright orange velvet couch in the living room. She continued the nature them with natural and jungle themed accents and furniture. His bedroom was transformed from its original industrial feel to a soft chalet theme that created a restful and beautiful space to relax.
The success that Alex Pall his home in the Hollywood Hills came with The Chainsmokers, a DJ duo that includes himself and Drew Taggart. While DJing was initially just a side hobby while working various jobs in New York, he realized while working at an art gallery that it was his passion and calling in life. He approached his manager about his goals and was introduced to Taggart, which is how the Chainsmokers are they are known today were born.
Taggart and Alex Pall immediately knew that they both had a lot to bring to the table. The 2 were inspired by the others’ talent and immediately set out to start producing the music that they both loved. With their combined talent, The Chainsmokers were able to capture the hearts of fans from around the world.
When the Chainsmokers released Memories over a year ago, they hoped to appear on the dance charts. They had no idea that their debut album would take the scene by storm. The fans loved it from the onset and the love is yet to fade. They got it to the top of the charts where it has stayed for quite some time. Memories recently took position three in the longest running number 1s.
The great feat has not kept the duo from venturing into new territories. In the last couple of months, they have treated their fans to a good number of great singles. It is no wonder that the duo continues to command a great following in the dance music industry.
The best dance labels appear on numerous charts including Billboard’s Top Dance Albums. Memories got to the top of this chart for the thirty-fourth time. The full-length album has not shown any signs of slowing down.
Gorillaz’s Demon Days are the other album that has topped the chart 34 times. Given that it was released 13 years ago, Memories has every chance of toppling it. It is only a matter of time before Chainsmokers become the sole owner of the third place.
The first appearance for Memories at the top came in April last year. The label was also leading the Billboard 200 chart at this time. It was a largely successful period for the Chainsmokers as their hits were all over the place in Top 40 Radio.
The all-genre nature of Billboard 200 ensured that the label lost its place in the top 10 a few months later. It has however not gone below position 5 in the Top Dance or Electronic Albums.
Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, The Chainsmokers duo, came into the scene in 2014 when they released their first single. Every year and challenge has provided an opportunity for growth and they have taken it in their stride. They are not relenting any time soon. Fans can keep expecting more as they hardly disappoint.
Above & Beyond, Calvin Harris and William Control have given The Chainsmokers a run for their money over the last couple of months. They still need to do more if they hope to come in the way of The Chainsmokers’ fast-rising popularity.
