The Chainsmokers, Republic Records, And Dim Mak Records Take a "#SELFIE"
On Tour Across the United States Now
The scorching New York City electronic dance music duo of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall is preparing its first EP for the label right now in conjunction with Dim Mak Records. The signing news comes hot on the heels of the pair's massive viral success with their debut single "#SELFIE".
"#SELFIE" quickly rose to the status of a cultural phenomenon upon release last month on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records. Tempering bouncy house music grooves and rich production with hilarious bathroom banter, the track's music video racked up over 3.5 million YouTube views and counting. Moreover, it just hit the Top 20 on iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart and #3 on the iTunes Top Dance Songs Chart as well as #1 on HypeM and #4 overall on Beatport. This might just be the ultimate "#SELFIE" of 2014.
Right now, the boys are in the midst of an extensive North American tour also touching down for dates in Canada and Mexico. Be sure to catch them live to get the full experience!
American group The Chainsmokers puff out a distinct hybrid of indie, progressive house, and pop music that proves utterly infectious and intoxicating. It's unlike anything out there, and the world is taking notice in a big way. Already, the pair has been showcased on high-profile podcasts from Nicky Romero, Steve Aoki, Pete Tong, Afrojack, Tiësto, W&W, and more as well as receiving shout outs from the likes of Rolling Stone. In addition, they've been tapped for remixes by everybody from Phoenix, Ellie Goulding, and The Wanted to The Killers and Icona Pop. Their remixes continually shoot to #1 on the HypeM—with 16 in total topping the chart. In addition, their original songs always land on Beatport's top charts, solidifying their status as contenders in the genre. The duo is represented by 4AM Management and The Audience. Republic Records is excited for what's to come from the dynamic duo.
The Chainsmokers are setting EDM ablaze right now. Hop into their "#SELFIE" now.
