Career[edit]

The Chainsmokers were formed as an EDM DJ duo in 2012 under the management of Adam Alpert in New York City. They started out by making remixes of indie bands[citation needed]. In 2012, they collaborated with Indian actress and recording artist Priyanka Chopra on the single "Erase," which was followed by "The Rookie" in early 2013.[citation needed]

Their single "#Selfie", released for free in December 2013, was picked up by Dim Mak Records who re-released it in January 2014 and eventually streamed it to Republic Records.

On August 5, 2014, The Chainsmokers released "Kanye" featuring sirenXX, the follow up to "#Selfie".

On March 3, 2015, they released "Let You Go", featuring Great Good Fine Ok.[2]

They signed with their manager Adam Alpert's joint venture label with Sony Music Entertainment, Disruptor Records, in April 2015.

On October 23, 2015, The Chainsmokers released their first EP titled Bouquet, featuring "New York City", "Until You Were Gone", "Waterbed", "Good Intentions", and "Roses".

On Dec 2, 2015, The Chainsmokers appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

The duo are expecting to release their debut album sometime in 2016. The first single from their debut album, "Don't Let Me Down" was released on February 5th, 2016. It features the singer Daya.
