Truth Dubstep

Something of a rarity in today’s fast moving music culture, Truth have managed to both
stick to their roots and yet remain highly in demand as touring DJs throughout their
career, cementing them as one of New Zealand’s finest creative exports. Since the act’s
inception in 2007, Andre Fernandez and Tristan Roake have cut a clear pathway
through the international dubstep and bass music scene.

No stranger to the nightclub and festival circuits, the guys tour all year-round covering
Europe, The USA, New Zealand and Australia, as well as managing to crack scenes
traditionally not extensively covered by Dubstep acts, such as Asia and South America.
Truth have extensive DJ support from Mala, Datsik, Excision, Skream, Youngsta,
Hatcha, Om Unit and N-Type, to name a few, giving their music an advance presence at
key club nights across the world and through seminal radio stations such as BBC Radio
One, Kiss Fm and Rinse FM.


Truth have seen releases on a wide range of labels, with their recent album ‘Hollow
World’ coming out on Firepower Records, as well as appearances on Deep Medi Muzik,
Tempa Records, Rottun Recordings, SMOG, and more. Through these, Truth have
found themselves in-demand as remixers and collaborators to Datsik, Alix Perez,
Shapeshifter, Taso (Teklife), Silkie, Kromestar, Flowdan and countless other figures of
note within the international bass music community.

“the album is fookin sick!!”
– N-Type


“this release is one of the, if not the,
most important of the year… a great
masterpiece of Bass music”


“this album is an instant classic to stay
the least”


“TRUTH has been holding it down the
entire time, remaining loyal to the
sound they love… This is the stamp of a
true artist”
– Funkadelphi


“Hollow World features their first diversions
into deep house tempos as well as
dubstep rhythms, but ultimately remains
unapologetically a dubstep album from
an act that’s well placed to ride out any
boom-and-bust hype around the genre”
– Fact Magazine


“another solid pillar of success in the ever
expanding story of this international duo”
– Spectrum


“An essential buy for any electronic music
– Spectrum


“the internationally renowned duo have
provided on so many levels… this album
unquestionably competes for pole position
amongst some of the great music
the pair have released.
I would say there’s a bright future in store
for Truth but I’m not really sure what else
they can do…”


“this album could be a harbinger of
things to come for the genre—a return to
bass weight emphasis and a tribalistic
ethos that pits well against the increasingly
commercialized PLUR of big room
and shallow house scenes”
– Do Androids Dance



Sonic architects of songs with an emotional heft as heavy as the subwoofer rupturing basslines that underpin their work, Truth are one of New Zealand’s finest creative exports. Respected across the globe, since inception several years ago, Truth (Andre Fernandez and Tristan Roake) have, as both world-class producers and party-rocking DJs, cut a clear pathway through the international dubstep scene.
