The Chainsmokers are a NYC-based DJ/producer duo that has proven their uncanny talents through both their original works and interesting remixes of other highly popular tracks. They have worked with an impressive list of prominent artist such as David Guetta, Jay-Z, Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Rihanna, and many other well-known musicians that are a staple with the music industry today. Under the label 4 A.M., the duo has been able to take their talents behind the DJ booth and producing software and cross the boundaries of EDM, hip-hop, and rock to cater to the taste of a mass market while still keeping originality and quality tunes.
This past Friday, Timeflies took over Terminal 5 in NYC. They played to a packed crowd of screaming fans and proved they are players to watch out for in the music world. The stage presence between Cal and Rez was filled with charisma as they connected with their fans from the stage. Accompanying that charisma, was an immense amount of energy showcasing their versatile approach to each song they performed. The guys were pumped being in their respective hometown and it showed. They played a mix of well-known songs (with a Timeflies twist, of course!) as well as their own productions.
The duo is currently on their first headling tour, 'The One Night Tour,' which goes through November hitting 35 cities. We were able to catch up with them to see what their production routines are, how social media has helped them and what type of music they plan on making in the future.

New York natives, The Chainsmokers, and Mark Zarrella will get behind the decks for a night of music that’ll put listeners in an empire state of mind.
The Chainsmokers are an electro-duo, made up of Alex Pall and Rhett Bixler, who have been spinning at clubs around the country since 2009. Despite an allegiance to nightclub house music, the duo creates dynamic sets peppering hip hop, funk, disco and soul into their mixes.
Mark Zarrella has a bassier sound. His heavy drops and sexy vocals light up dance floors every week. After his infectiously visceral set at Santos on New Year's Eve, it’s no wonder he’s been invited back for this tribute to New York DJs.
For VIP Reservations, please contact Brett@Joonbug.com or call 516-808-5371.

The Vintage Twin, a New York based Vintage Clothing Company founded by twin sisters Morgan and Samantha Elias, opened their doors to the public for their 2nd Annual Summer Trunk Show.
This event welcomed family, friends, and vintage lovers to celebrate another year of the vintage style. The Vintage Twin brought the clothes, The Chainsmokers took care of the music, and Svedka provided the buzz. This collaboration led to one successful night full of dancing, photography, and of course....shopping.
The room was pleasantly surprised when Ivanka Trump walked in to show off some of her purchasing power and vintage interest as well.
