Certified mainstays of New Zealand’s electronic music scene, award-winning duo TRUTH are champions of contemporary dubstep.
Storming 2021 by way of their first studio album in over 4 years, the celebrated tandem launch their ‘Acceptance’ LP with lead single “Pages.” This emotive atmospheric cut is due for release Friday, June 11.
With a world facing view from their vantage point of New Zealand, TRUTH makes cutting edge bass music for electronic enthusiasts around the globe. The duo have performed across NZ, Australia, Europe, Asia, North and South America, and become a quintessential act at renowned festivals by the likes of Shambhala, Outlook, and Infrasound.
A force both on-stage and in the studio, TRUTH have long established themselves as proven tastemakers; successful in their original productions, dance-floor moving sets, and in running their own label imprint, Deep Dark & Dangerous. Launched in 2013, the club-night-turned-record-label has grown to become home to over 50 signed artists, 80+ releases and a mounting list of internationally touring acts — an unmistakable bastion of forward thinking dubstep.
To compliment their music, TRUTH and Deep Dark & Dangerous have simultaneously built a functional apparel line tied to their work and following; from tactical bags, to kimonos, to customized tracksuits, the merch line is tasteful, encompassing, and widely sought after. Following a long, quarantined year and a string of heavily-trafficked Twitch streams, TRUTH is now back in full effect with ‘Acceptance’ – their 5th album.
Combining their razor sharp synchronization and innovative flair, this 13-track opus is a dreamlike journey through lush basslines, eerie rhythms, and vintage synths. Ahead of the anticipated album release, TRUTH delivers “Pages.” A brilliant preview of what’s soon to come, this poignant masterpiece is only a sliver of the journey of sound arriving this August. Watch this space.
“‘Acceptance’ is a deeply personal musical experience for us where we have bared far more of ourselves than in previous albums. It’s more of a piece that says who we are. We chose ‘Pages’ as the lead track because it embodies everything about this release that we are proud of. It’s poignant and nostalgic, while also existing in a dreamlike, lush, yet slightly eerie space. With this track we hope to evoke in the listener that feeling that you get when you come across a long forgotten memory.” – TRUTH
