Deuce & Charger : First Light EP Review

Deuce-&-Charger-cdDeuce & Charger is a London-based singer and producer/DJ duo that has emerged as one of the freshest sounds in the melodic drum and bass EDM genre. With a sound inspired by electro elements, catchy vocals, and wrapped in attention to the details of songwriting, Deuce & Charger is very unique. In 2020, Deuce & Charger continue to rise from the underground of the drum & bass scene. Already this year, they have released a dark melodic track called “Shadowplay,” which was followed by the duo’s epic synth dancefloor tune “Stay Tonight.” Deuce & Charger released “Lies’ in April” that had a jungle break and timeless-sounding synth riff. Now to top things off, Deuce & Charger are releasing an EP titled, First Light EP. With six songs that feature Deuce & Charger’s unique sound and production versatility.

The EP opens with the title track “First Light.” The live vocal/DJ duet builds the song with analog synth sounds and a floating vocal melody. The hallmark sounds of rolling bass and crisp drums push the song to a steady dance tempo. The mix is fluid, and the song is constructed with many intensity levels. In the EDM genre, so often, the drums are generic, but that is not the case with Deuce & Charger.

“Sun In Our Eyes” opens with synth swells and sampled vocals. The anthemic vocals float over the evolving sounds before a half-time beat develops. Each section is perfect for dancing, the song features two outstanding drops. The second drop will light up the dance floor. The climax takes us to a steady groove of dance floor rhythms and a glistening synth lead. The last half of the track keeps the energy up, making this an original song in both structures and beats, but all good for dancing.

Deuce & Charger combine creative views of vocals and production to give a melodic drum and bass sound that is uniquely theirs. The beats create a groove that is easy to get lost in as you close your eyes and let the music lead you. The music has a strong pull both on and off the dance floor. Deuce & Charger’s distinctive song-led synth sound with floating vocals is not to be missed.

About The Author
Shannon Smith
A fan of music my entire life. Should that be enough, well it is for me. Who buys music, the fans. Who listens to music, the fans. Like me, there are many like-minded individuals that daily search for meaningful and new music to add to their playlist, their soundtrack of life. A life without music would Bb. Yes, I have seen that saying floating around for years, and truth is, its #truth. So, may I introduce you to Shannon Smith (me). I am the editor. A music junkie that can’t get enough music in my life. A nerd (proudly), with some mad love for technology and design. It is that desire that sparked Sound in Review. Life is busy, the reviews are meant to ultimately introduce and briefly talk about the music. We have a section called SIR Quote: this is my way of saying thank you, to the countless artists making the world a place of expression. Show yours by rating each artists album, just as we have (collectively as writers), to show your support for your favorite artist.
