Desiree Perez

Many see the glamour of celebrities, and not giving a second thought to those in the shadows helping power star careers. Success runs on a rough road, and one of the heavy hitting pavers is powerhouse Desiree Perez. Her name is included on a list of legends in production, management and marketing departments. Her name stands among other women known for their guidance of successful music artists over the past twenty years.

Recently listed in the top fifty on the Billboard Power 100 list and labeled “one of the most dominant females in the music industry” by LA News Watch. As the COO of Roc Nation, Ms. Perez continues to push her clientele higher into the stratosphere with her knowledge and negotiating skills. Heavily involved in the negotiations between Rihanna and Samsung, and Desiree’s success with the Beyoncé Formation Stadium, shows a keen eye for detail and haggling.

Her instrumental involvement with the Tidal app brought in nearly one million users signing up for the trial membership, largely due to her ability to bring in well-known artists and exclusive albums to the business.

Named Chief Operating Officer of Roc Nation in 2009, Desiree commands respect for her ability to be involved in management, publishing, and label operations. Since that time, her work reflects the absolute talent she manages for Roc Nation.

Alex Pall Explains How The Chainsmokers Are Changing The Electronic Music Landscape

The electronic music sector has become one of the fastest-growing in recent years with many new DJs and musical collaborations popping up across the music industry with pioneers such as Amici leading the way forward. Despite the success of these early DJ performers the path taken has often been a similar one with the DJ remaining hidden from view behind their booth until the arrival of The Chainsmokers as the leading electronic music pioneers in the U.S. with a growing band of followers across the world.

Alex Pall has not been satisfied with the opportunities presented to his band in remaining a faceless aspect of the electronic music scene like so many of his fellow DJs; instead, Pall and musical collaborator, Andrew Taggart have decided to take ownership of their music and image in many different ways and change the overall view of electronic music to the listeners of the world. In the view of both members of The Chainsmokers, the time has come for Dj like themselves to be seen as independent performers and musicians who should be seen as the authors of their own work.

In a break with the traditional view of DJs, both Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart have appeared on their songs as vocalists performing alongside some of the best-known singers of recent times. The Chainsmokers have broken with many traditions over recent years including stepping into the songwriting room and taking ownership of their own songs by co-writing and basing their songs on their own experiences.

Alex Pall has been at the heart of the process of changing the image and success rate of The Chainsmokers as he believes a higher level of creativity has allowed the duo to take far more pride in the work they have undertaken. As the success of the band grows, Pall is playing an even greater role in the development of the image of the duo as they continue to build towards global success.
