The Chainsmokers‘ second Reddit AMA took place last night — and during the hour-long live stream, Drew and Alex spilled their guts about music, fame, haters and more!


Best underrated producers…

“Guys like Boombox Cartel, Quix, Louis the Child, k?d, Illenium, Lido, (and more)!”

On returning to their EDM roots…

“…We’ve kind of grown past that type of dance music and the whole 128 [BPM] stuff. But, we’re going to take a bunch of chances and do stuff we think is inspiring and fun. Hopefully it doesn’t sound like generic pop to you.” – Drew

Artists that inspired them musically…

“Sonically, Dr. Dre, Skrillex, oh — f*cking Linkin Park!” – Drew

The weirdest things about fame…

“When you have people talking about the things that you wear and you do and you say, it’s like you’ve kind of lost control about the story of your life.” – Drew

New album in 2018?

“If it feels right, we’ll do it… We just want to be able to put out music consistently.” – Drew

Best way to deal with haters…

“Initially it fucks with your day, but you kind of just have to brush it off. Remember there’s so much positivity out there…” – Alex

What they hate most about each other…

“We pick each other’s noses.”

As for how many hotdogs they could eat in 30 minutes (no condiments)…

“Probably… 3 1/2 or 4.” – Drew

“I could scarf 2 down no problem.” – Alex

The Chainsmokers also spoke about their elaborate arena tour, being called “the Nickleback of EDM,” collabs with Matoma, Blink-182 and more! Watch here:
