Alex Pall, one of the Chainsmokers, bought a Hollywood Hills home which left people talking. It was built in the 1930s and was renovated in the 1980s and 1990s to give it a modern touch. It turned out to be a home every successful person would want to own. However, it wouldn’t be a complete home if he had not sought the help of the famous professional interior designer, Peti Lau.
Peti Lau’s interior design approach entailed treating each room as its own unique environment, color mixing and matching as well as incorporating Alex Pall’s art collection. This transformed the house into a castle-like home. The tropical brainstorm, the bedroom drama, the line and dine and the ‘Kitch’ in ‘Kitchen’, all came down nicely and in harmony to pay homage and house the one half of the Chainsmokers, the leading DJ band that recently released a hit song, “Closer”.
The highly anticipated track, “Closer”, was produced by the Chainsmokers and it featured the highly celebrated hit artists Halsey and Andrew Taggart, the one half of the DJ duo. For the first time, Mr. Taggart alongside Halsey sang as they sought to add a human element to their electronic landscapes. In an interview with Mathias Rosenweig, the Chainsmokers shared more about their music career.
“I was a DJ growing up”, said Alex Pall. It was all he wanted to do but at some point, he got a job at an art gallery. He worked with a person who introduced him to Andrew and their DJ career begun immediately afterwards. According to Mr. Pall, their ambitions and values matched, they worked hard to build a brand and the rest is history.
The world is changing. To continue staying relevant, you need to change with it, re-evaluate yourself, discover yourself, try new things and create music that people relate in a deeper level. According to Pall, that has kept the Chainsmokers going.
We are used to the norm that beat crafters, producers and DJs hide behind their DJ booths and their instruments. However, the Chainsmokers decided to break the norm by expressing their feelings and thoughts in their songs. They take part in writing lyrics of their songs and tell their real life stories through the songs. That might be the reason why their audience has expanded so much.
Pall said that their audience has expanded so much that people across all ages can relate and connect to their music. This shows that their music is impacting lives. Do you know how to tell whether you’re successful or not? Well, it’s by the number of lives you’ve impacted in a positive way and of course, owning a good home.
