The Chainsmokers- DJ Duo on the Rise

If you have not heard of The Chainsmokers by now, it’s time to leave the rock you have been under. Though, it is a bit more understandable considering they’ve really only been on the top charts in the past two years, with breakout hits like Roses and Paris. But you can’t tell me you haven’t had “Closer”, their song with Halsey stuck in your head before.  So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover….  

Starting off 2018 with a bang, the duo dropped their new single  Sick Boy  on January 17. This track is vastly darker and more complicated than their previous hits, though that’s not to say their audience did not love it.

“Make no mistake, I live in a prison That I build myself, it is my religion”

While most pop hits these days talk about fame as a treasure they happened upon, or the burden they are faced to bare, The Chainsmokers acknowledges their fame (and the downsides to it) was carefully crafted and is solely their responsibility. Along with the song, the artists dropped the  Sick Boy  music video.

The Chainsmokers is a DJ duo created by Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. Their first breakthrough was with the song  #Selfie  (you know…  Let me take a selfie… ) in 2014 which was easily a top twenty track in multiple countries.  Don’t Let Me Down  was their first top 5 single from the album Bouquet (2015), which also won the pair a Grammy Award. Their most recent album is Memories…Do Not Open (which features  Sick Boy ). The duo has only just begun their music career in top 40, and has already blown everyone away. Their songs feature a great mix of pop, dance, and edm. It’s refreshing to see something so serious as Sick Boy  but still be able to dance to and enjoy it. If you are looking for a music group to watch this year, I would highly recommend The Chainsmokers, as this duo has so far to go still.

Desiree Perez & Tidal Make a Big Impression With Nothing But Hits

The Tidal app has become quite a new trend as of lately since its exclusives from talented co-owners. The big move comes in as a hit and has made its largest move ever within the iTunes Store. This comes on the heels of Kanye West’s TLOP release. Since the release, there are more than a million trial members who have joined since the release.

There has been a list of executives that all have left since the release and they are on their third CEO, he is the ex-chief business officer for Sound Cloud. Jeff Toig joined the group in late 2015. The big question remains as to who is planning these exclusive 5 star artists plays. The people who are talking about the business say that Desiree Perez is the person behind the curtain. Perez is a very close associate of Jay Z and she has a long time running record for SC Enterprises. Along with Perez, her husband Juan also runs the Roc Nation Sports group.  Check on

Desiree Perez is specifically known for how tough she is as a negotiator and for being able to crunch the numbers when it comes to figuring out what needs to happen to make something better. She has been referred to by the N.Y. Daily News as being Babe Ruthless. She is a well known BOSS. She had her hand in on the forming of the Formation stadium tour as well as with the Samsung deal for Rihanna.  Visit Dez’ page.

With the new release of Tidal, the updated service has a whole new experience available to its customers. Those who are subscribers to the service claim that the new service is focusing on what is up and coming and what is new to music lovers. Most of your subscribing services will ask that you carry a robust catalog which is going to cost more and Tidal instead has a Discovery section which allows for artists who are emerging to be heard. There is also a Live Performance section which allows for you to be able to listen to performances by artists. The one thing that they offer that most other services do not have is impeccable taste. When it comes to what they offer, the taste they carry in artists and music is by far the best there is out there.  See
