Alex Pall Chases Emotional Connection With Chainsmokers’ Music

The Chainsmoker’s new single “Sick Boy” has a message to share with its listeners, and that message is a little dark. It may be unheard of to look for meaning, relevance, and social commentary within the synth beat of a dance song, but that is exactly what the DJ duo of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart have given us. According to Pall it is direction the duo insists on taking, as it is one more step in their overall quest of identity. Pall and Taggart do not want to be just a pair of DJ’s, they also do not want to become parodies of themselves, what they want is to be established as artists. “Sick Boy” is the first of a new series of songs that represent the groups journey of self-discovery, and so far their fans are ready to come along.

 

“Sick Boy” targets the addiction of social media, remarking on how it syphons identity, and touching on the duo’s on frustration with overexposure. As celebrities they are constantly in the spotlight with no real privacy to be found. “Sick Boy” and singles like “Closer” are examples of the duo’s involvement in song writing. One of many elements that set the duo apart from the rest of the genre. Another element is Andrew Taggart providing the lead vocals. Usually the human element within EDM, DJ’s look to other artists. According to Pall the group does not want to make typical dance music anymore but create a body of work that focuses on their identity as artists. “Its really exciting to witness our music find emotional connection in our listeners” Pall said, stating that the group makes music for themselves first.

It is also about relevance. According to Taggart it is very easy to become a parody of yourself. The haunting epidemic of irrelevance within music chases many an artist. Popular one second, outdated the next. Pushing boundaries is a way for the Chainsmokers to remain at the forefront, to constantly relate to their listeners, and not lose their voice. So far it is working.

The Real Estate Market in NJ with Boraie

As published in NY Times, the crisis of rising real estate markets has moved on to New Jersey. And as per the real estate company Zillow, New Jersey outdid majority of the states by having the uppermost rates and shares of residential mortgages, which are delinquent and are for foreclosure. This scenario shows that the New Jersey real estate markets are following the rest of the country.

On the other hand, the lowering rates of foreclosures and delinquency are considered significant signs of better household formations, gains in home prices and higher rates of employment. Hence, it is expected that the positive trends will carry on as the real estate industry change its concentration in establishing and solving shortages along with the looming crises in home affordability and the increasing number of markets.

Lawrence Yun, Real Chief Economist at the National Association of Realtors, commented that housing shortages may increase which could escalate into a housing emergency if the gap between housing demand and housing supplies continue to widen. Economists are pessimistic that the real estate will soon recover in New Jersey since there was a fall in the issuance of housing permits in May. However, economic reports indicate that home prices are expected to rise, thus, selling circumstances will improve in the future. But the fact is, there are plenty of vacant houses which are not being put on the market just yet because homeowners are expecting to make higher profits once the selling conditions become better.

Regardless of the collapsed real estate market in New Jersey, towns saw high demands for housing since prices in the cities have skyrocketed within the past months. The housing trend is seen in areas that can easily access the transit and this feature is attractive to future homeowners who would want to be near the NJ Transit. Capital Economists expect that the real estate market will change since higher interest rates and lower house prices will lead to more homes being shelved.

The constant creation of jobs is expected to increase the demands for housing, although higher home prices and high rents have been constantly rising. Moreover, mortgage rates remain low allowing more mortgage credits. All of these factors will certainly reduce the housing escalation in State Theatre New Jersey.

Top Artists Want Tour Manager Clayton Hutson

Clayton Hutson is tour manager and stage engineer for many of the top musical artists and bands. The tours take him from location to location, moving from one to the other in very short periods of time. The setting for each show has to be perfectly orchestrated to ultimately deliver a flawless, on-stage sound experience. This is just a part of what Clayton does.

 

He attended Central Michigan University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Theater Design and Production. He achieved an MBA at the University of Michigan. Soon after that, he moved to Minneapolis for a position as production manager for Evangelist Billy Graham.

 

After several years, Clayton was very happy to get the chance to go on tour with Marilyn Manson, which he did for 3 years. He shone with his technical expertise, knowledge, attention to detail, precision timing, and everything else he put into every production. His career took off.

 

Clayton Hutson, with 25 years of experience, is well known, and much sought after by some of the biggest names in the industry. He has worked as tour manager for the Backstreet Boys, Jennifer Nettles, Pink, Alice in Chains, Aaron Lewis and Staind, and New Kids on the Block, just to name a few. The tours have taken him around the world.

 

Clayton Hutson uses the DiGiCo brand consoles, and he likes the portability of the SD11 model. The company introduced its SD11 console in 2011, and it was first used during the Aaron Lewis tour that year. Clayton was the tour manager for Aaron Lewis, founder of Staind. He had used earlier model consoles by DiGiCo, such as the SD7 and the SD8. He was anxious to try out the SD 11 because of its smaller size, which he felt would be more convenient when traveling.

 

“I also had the very first, hand-built D5 out with Marilyn Manson almost ten years ago. Considering the volatility of that artist, taking a new console out was a risk… but it worked out fantastically. DiGiCo had my back then and I’ve been a supporter ever since,” Clayton Hutson commented. Learn more:  http://fohonline.com/news/17024-ver-drives-onerepublic’s-honda-civic-tour-production.html
