But first, let us take a selfie!
There’s no denying that the first thing that comes to mind when we hear The Chainsmokers is #SELFIE. After all, the duo did make their way into the mainstream spotlight thanks to their infamous hit “#SELFIE”. However, before their vanity-inducing single became a international craze, the duo could be found making house remixes of indie acts.
Having released songs including “Let You Go” featuring Great Good Fine Ok and “Kanye” featuring SirenXX, the duo are looking to break past their “#SELFIE” craze in order to re-establish their identity. Heading to Kuala Lumpur for the first time ever this June 4th (Thursday), we’ve prepared some interesting facts about The Chainsmokers based on their recent “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit.
- They chose the name The Chainsmokers because it seemed clever and the domains were open. They never thought they were going to be this big.
- They love music of all genres and find inspiration everywhere. Their plan is to keep evolving and to keep making music that people won’t expect.
- Their worst and best memory of the music industry is getting signed.
- They built their career around SoundCloud but will be leaving the platform as SoundCloud has failed to reach mutural terms with them and their label.
- Alex’s favourite song is “Electric Body” by A$AP Rocky while Drew’s favourite is “Bandz” by Travis Scott.
- They claim to sell crack. Hmm..
- They have plans on releasing a track every month in the foreseeable future.
- They sure know how to party. The duo caused RM15k in damages at an after party in W Hotel with Adventure Club, Dillon Francis, Botnek. 3lau and about 10 other DJs.
