"Dreams" and "Last Time" might mark Truth's debut release on Tempa, but the duo have been carving out their own cavernous spaces for quite some time. With previous releases through dubstep hubs like Mala's Deep Medi label, Skream's Disfigured Dubz, among others, they have honed a distinctive take on the genre: Truth tracks have a cinematic twist, all open spaces and soft-focus melody where many of their contemporaries trade in dissonance and claustrophobia.
Perhaps that's down to the geographical separation: Truth - Andre Fernandez and Tristan Roake - hail from Christchurch, New Zealand. Quite some distance from the genre's roots in London and most of their labelmates, admittedly. But that hasn't stopped their music from lighting up DJ sets by genre figureheads across the globe, from Youngsta, Hatcha and Digital Mystikz to Dub War's Joe Nice. So their signing to Tempa is a perfect fit.
