updated for the September 13, 2017 concert
American DJ duo The Chainsmokers is coming back to Manila on September 13, 2017 to play live for the second time, this time at the Mall of Asia Arena. Expect ground-breaking performances and their wild antics – but before we see them live, here are a few facts about The Chainsmokers:
1. The Chainsmokers Pre-Performance Ritual
Before getting onto the stage, some artists have vocal warm ups and some sweat it out, but for this duo, it’s a different scenario. Imagine them having a few drinks (or a lot in a number of shows) before they turn the stage upside down, or punch each other in the face just to hype the party monsters in them. They also drown themselves with either steak or espressos to turn their bodies up for a massive and unforgettable moment upstage!
2. The Name “Chainsmokers” Seemed Clever
Their name didn’t actually have any historical background or any sentimental meaning for them. Their name “Chainsmokers” was used just because it sounded clever for them and the domains were open. No one could’ve imagined that it would get this big and awesome for them, right? I mean, 443,792,938 views just for one track? How awesome could they get!
3. Soundcloud was the First Home of the Chainsmokers
Before achieving the success they have now, The Chainsmokers used to upload their tracks in Soundcloud. It was a matter of expressing their musical passion and their intention to share it with the world.
4. You’ve been Singing their Track “Roses” Wrong!
Their biggest track of 2015, “Roses,” was the anthem of every gathering you could think of! But do you honestly and wholeheartedly know the lyrics of that song? Well here are some lyrics you’ve been mistakenly hearing (or singing in the shower perhaps):
Take it slow, but it’s not typical
He already knows my love is fine
His heart’s of stone, his hands roam
I told him to go, but he took it hard
Taking it slow, but it’s not typical
He already knows that my love is fire
His heart was a stone, but then his hands roamed
I turned him to gold and it took him higher
5. You would think this Duo was in a Long-Term Friendship… Absolutely Not.
Before all the music, the parties, and the mixing, they were total strangers to each other. According to a telephone interview they had with Up to the Sun, they were just introduced to each other by a friend of a friend. Whaaat?! Who would’ve thought that these two would be selling thousands of copies after just sharing the same passion for music! In the same interview, it was mentioned that Drew was mostly into pop tracks and Alex was the one DJing in New York but after two months of mashing mixes, they found themselves doing more legit tracks together!
6. A Bookworm and a Gamer come Together!
When they’re not in the music scene, what do these two actually do with their lives? You would think they’d be out partying, living the night, or just doing random things with their friends but nope, not at all. These two have a different side that we don’t usually get to see! Alex is actually a bookworm who loves to read novels, while Drew on the other hand loves video games, well “Call of Duty” to be exact. Well isn’t that a surprise!
7. They Take Inspiration From Anything and Everything
These hitmakers do not pick and choose the kind of music they produce. As they say, a person born out of music produces the kind of music that inspires them. They have the passion for the art and this varies from different genres and music types. Wishing to continue to evolve as performers, they also want to be an inspiration as well to aspiring musicians. They continue with their mission which is to just mix what they think is fun!
