TRUTH (Deep Medi, Tempa, Rottun, SMOG, Artikal, Black Box, Boka, Wheel & Deal, Aquatic Lab, Get Darker) “Truth is the best thing that's happened to Dubstep in North America” - Datsik 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. On the nightclub and festival circuits, the fruits of their labor have included, several European tours, countless shows across the USA, New Zealand and Australia, a massive South American tour, and shows in Asia. Truth has built this performance presence through DJ support from Mala, Excision, Skream, Youngsta, Hatcha 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. Through keynote DJ support, they have been rewarded with single releases via Deep Medi Muzik, Tempa Records, Rottun Recordings, SMOG, Wheel and Deal, Blackbox Recs, Aquatic Lab, Disfigured Dubz, Argon and Boka Records. Through these, including critically 'The Fatman' (as released via Deep Medi Muzik) and their acclaimed Aquatic Lab released album 'Puppets' and it's follow up 'Love's Shadow', Truth have seen their stock rise, placing them as in-demand remixers and collaborators to The Nextmen, Miss Dynamite, Shapeshifter, The Black Seeds, Seven, Silkie, Kromestar, Tunndige, Datsik and countless figures of note within the international dubstep community. Acclaimed by critics, their momentum is undeniable and impossible to ignore.

Methodically flooding the airwaves with sonically justified precision, the man behind the moniker DMVU stands at the decks of an unstoppable persona defined by unmistakable ingenuity. Calling Denver, Colorado home, his innovation laden sounds claim a constant state of bewilderment, leaving no question to his intrinsic skill as he deepens his groove as a major player in an international circuit. With tracks circulating across seas and finding their way into the playlists of names like Noisia and Boombox Cartel, he continues to receive praise from some of the top names in bass music. Recently releasing a full Hip Hop EP with Ill Chill, the producer’s reaches seem to have no limits, nurturing a rapidly growing fan base with tastes just as large as his productions. Seeing collaborations with the likes of Emancipator and playing well matched alongside leading figures Hudson Mohawke and Truth, his involvement with respected labels Encrypted Audio and Deep Dark and Dangerous fuel an uncontainable flame. Proliferating an impressive lineage of releases, his most recent addition, the ‘BLOCCD’ EP on Deep Dark and Dangerous stands as a true testament to a diversely adept artist’s deserved place as a gate-pushing contender within today’s expansive music scene. Prepared or not, the best from DMVU is coming for us when we least expect it.
