Dance Electronic

Truth, Paige Julia and Ashez all reach into different pockets of the bass-music spectrum, from dubstep/140, to jungle, drum n bass, halftime and breaks. This tour is a collaboration which just makes sense! Local support from BLASE and Mufasa.


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, Truth, as both world-class producers and party-rocking DJs, cut a clear pathway through the international dubstep scene.

On the nightclub and festival circuits, the fruits of their labour include many European tours, countless shows across the USA, New Zealand, Australia, South America and Asia. Their releases span the spectrum of 140 labels from Deep Medi, to Wakaan to their own music-releasing juggernaut Deep, Dark & Dangerous (aka their ‘baby’). Truth are the winners of the “Best Electronic Artist” at the 2017 Aotearoa Music Awards.
