Wise beyond their years and aggressively handsome, these two overachievers are focused on success... Never before has the world seen two furry browed individuals such as these two (seriously they have really bushy eye brows)… As you might have imagined Alex and Drew did not meet on the set of their Vogue Cover shoot while surrounded by super models, but rather somewhere else. Apart from Social Darwinism, the thing that separates these two men from the rest is their unsettling and uncanny ability to discover and create trends. They find the parts of things that people actually give a shit about, whatever they may be, and focus on creating and improving those parts.
With live sets and productions that their own mothers describe as, “sounds nice, but a little loud,” these two always put on a show that was not ever described as sexy and life-changing, but should be. Apart from their unique personalities and boyish good looks, they have many similarities. They each graduated from prestigious North-Eastern Universities, they like hot chicks in yoga pants, enjoy a good burger, and have been rejected from many of the venues they now play at. Some, but not nearly all credentials (The 2 cents): They have played at Marquee Las Vegas & New York, LIV Miami, Lavo New York, Pacha New York, Set Miami, Greystone Manor LA, Sound LA, Terminal 5 New York, Roseland New York, Paradiso Amsterdam, Soldier Field Chicago, Thekla Bristol, Pangaea Singapore, Villa Ibiza, 1OAK Las Vegas & New York, Opium Barcelona and headlined Electro Beach in Puerto Vallarta, Bangon! Music Festival, and the world-famous TomorrowWorld in Atlanta .
The duo have also shared nights with deejays like Calvin Harris, Avicii, Bingo Players, Swanky Tunes, Arty, Pete Tong, R3Hab, Wolfgang Gartner, Max Vangeli, Alesso, Steve Aoki, Chuckie and W&W. Musically, The Chainsmokers have had a very busy year. Their signature sound has its foundations in Indie, Progressive and Pop Music. Currently, all of their remixes have all found their way onto Hype Machine’s popular charts, all charting in the Top 3 with over +100k plays each, and their last FIVE remixes have all charted consecutively at #1. They have seen support musically from Afrojack, Tiesto, Adventure Club, W&W, Michael Brun, 3LAU, Dubvision, Matisse & Sadko, Martin Solveig, Jewelz, Adrian Luxe, Felix Cartel, and Basto.

Some talents fall into place naturally, while others explode upon the industry with little but a flash of warning. A sudden flash of genius was all it took for Dutch Dance icon Tiësto to sign his alliances to the coming of age American club soldier we now know as Ken Loi. Gripping the nerve-ends of an industry now charged with universal attention and laying down his own unique melodic stylings upon its highest peaks, 2012 remains proving ground to yet another game changing asset to the stateside EDM explosion.
Outside of the digital market, Ken’s ardent stage presence has continued to extend the excitement surrounding his recent triumphs. Between the 27,000 strong crowds of his opening slot at Tiësto’s appearance at the Home Depot Center right through to landmark appearances at XS, Hard Rock Café and Marquee Las Vegas, the sound of San Francisco’s worst kept secret mirrors the country’s widespread enthusiasm for club music with little hesitation.
Now fueling the airwaves of Sirus XM with his ‘Ken Loi's Monster Mash’ installment for Tiësto’s Club Life radio show, his ambitious nature and genuine sense of belonging within 21st century Dance music suggest more great things are to come from this increasingly powerful floor filler. While the hands of time have yet to test the enthusiasm that Ken Loi's productions consistently collect, 2012 already indicates that the aspiring American icon is in this game for the long haul.
