After a massive 2016, Deuce & Charger already look set for an even bigger 2017 with their first release of the year; the double A-side single 'Labyrinth' / 'Waifs & Strays' out on In Charge Recordings on 17 March.
'Labyrinth' wastes no time plunging into a schizophrenic darkness of insistent analogue synth arpeggios and dramatic orchestral drums. Becky's emotive vocal rises above the melee, guiding the track to an epic build before giving way to a mighty dance-floor synth bass and vocal drop.
'Waifs & Strays' saves us from the chaos; a slow-burning, atmospheric cut that foregrounds Becky's confessional vocal. The intimate, fragile tone is broken as the track crescendos into a driving bass drop and euphoric chorus hook.
Deuce & Charger continue to make a rapid rise through the ranks of drum and bass. The London-based trio appeared on two of last year's biggest drum and bass compilations: Viper's 'Summer Slammers' and Liquicity's 'Alchemy 2'. Their previous single, 'A Leap Of Faith' / 'The Spirit Guide', was described by DJ Mag as "The highest quality... energy, love and passion can be heard in every last decibel".
Deuce & Charger have been playlisted on 1Xtra, played on Radio 1 and Kiss Fresh, featured in Mixmag and DJ Mag, been supported by tastemaker blogs and channels including Magnetic Magazine, Drum & Bass HQ, Bassrush, Skank & Bass, YourEDM.com, Less Than 3 and Ninja Ninja, and remixed by Dossa & Locuzzed (Viper Recordings), Kronology (Technique Recordings) and Chords (RAM Records).
