'Truth' alongside damage from an earthquake.

Truth is a Dubstep duo named Tristan Roake and Andre Fernandez.

The theory that isolation breeds creativity has never been as apt as it is for Truth, a Dubstep outfit hailing from one of the world’s most southern cities. What began as a musical experiment has now become something much more significant.

While based in New Zealand, Truth has toured extensively including two USA tours and three tours of the UK and Europe. They can be found regularly playing in New Zealand and Australia.

Artist Discovery

A chance encounter with dubstep visionary Mala late in 2007 inspired the New Zealand trio, who have been working together for years, to try their hand at a new sound – one comprising serious sub bass and snares so nasty they make eyes water. Within days of slipping Mala a handful of tunes made in as many days, Truth had been signed to its label Deep Media – widely regarded as one the most progressive in the scene, alongside a cluster of highly respected artists including Loefah, Kromestar, Silkie & Quest and Goth Trad. Truth’s style defies categorization, encompassing an array of melodies and vocals within spacious beats that range from half-step stoppers like ‘The Fatman’ to deeper tunes like ‘Stolen Children’. Julian Van Auden left the group in early 2011 and now performs under his solo name Gamble. Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike License.
