Alex Pall Talks Evolution in the Wake of the Chainsmokers New Hit

When the Chainsmokers released 2016 single “Closer” Andrew Taggart picked up the mike to sing lead vocals. This was the first time the group, formed back in 2012, attempted to become part of the humanity within their music. EDM DJ’s rely heavily on other artists to provide the human element in their work. This element comes from the songwriting, and the vocalization. EDM DJ’s rarely provide that vocalization, but in “Closer” Taggart crossed that barrier. It is no secret the duo pushes themselves to achieve new limits in their medium. Both have attested numerous times that they no longer want to just make dance music. Taggart’s vocal turn demonstrate their willingness to challenge the norms and seek a different definition for their work. In an interview Alex Pall, the other have of the successful duo, talked about their quest for identity, and how they seek to remain relevant. “We don’t want to produce albums containing a random mix of songs,” Pall stated, “Containing a couple of singles, a few good songs, some dance tracks, and possibly an interlude. We want to create an album of connected songs that form a body of work”.

 

The Chainsmokers became known in 2014, with their first hit single “#Selfie”. Their popularity grew almost overnight and they skyrocketed to the mainstream. The success came so fast that four years later they still have not caught up. Earlier this year they released new single “Sick Boy” which is currently gaining popularity. The song carries a darker tone than their previous work, carrying with it a real world message. The main aim of the song is at the pressure of social media, the dependence upon it, and how it steals away people’s identity. The song also references Pall and Taggart’s own frustration with oversaturation on social media, leading to a lack of privacy. The song is the first of a group, and represents the duo’s newest evolution.

The US’ Infrastructure is Crumbling Says Shervin Pishevar

As the price of Bitcoin keeps dropping, many people are beginning to put stock into the grim predictions of entrepreneur Shervin Pishevar. Over 2 days in early February, Shervin Pishevar took to Twitter to deliver his thoughts and opinions on the economy both in the United States and globally.

Delivered through 50 tweets, the 21-hour tweet storm left a lot of people shaking their heads. With predictions from the crash of bitcoin to the rise of China, there were a lot of concerning and controversial topics covered during Shervin Pishevar’s rant. The early investor in Uber has been correct in many of his predictions in the past so many aren’t taking what he’s saying lightly.

One of the huge concerns that were addressed in Shervin Pishevar’s Tweet storm is the problems with the infrastructure in the United States. For decades residents of the US have spoken about the crumbling infrastructure such as bridges and roads along with the problems in public transit that plague many cities. He brings up an example in China where they managed to build an entire train system in just 9 hours due to proper planning and execution. With efficient construction times like this, it’s difficult to understand why many of the US infrastructure projects tend to take months and sometimes even years to complete. While other global powers are focused on long-term goals, the United States and their businesses are stuck only focusing on the present and immediate future by only thinking in the short term.

He does later go on to explain that there are exceptions to the rules, but they are very rare. Shirven Pishevar brought up Elon Musk and the great success he has had with the Space X and Virgin Hyperloop programs.

Due to the US’ obsession with short-term prospects, projects on these scales are generally hard to get off the ground as many companies lack the willpower needed for them to succeed. To keep the US from crumbling in the future, action needs to be taken now.
