Former Christchurch badbwoys Truth (Andre Fernandez and Tristan Roake) have been working hard cementing their name amongst the legends of the dubstep scene. Their switch from the drum’n’bass genre under another alias paid off well with huge recognition for their debut 2010 album Puppets and subsequent releases on major labels.
While they may have established themselves as formidable purveyors of the dark, moody and at times melancholic side of dubstep, Rolling Stone displays the lighter side of Truth. Although still tinged with a hint of sinister suspense, this tune would sit well in any relaxation compilation. This is headphone meditation at its best.
Remixing is a funny thing; it can work wonders to expand the audience and appeal of certain musicians or it can be a total butchering of a fans favourite song. On Rolling Stone, Truth have certainly improved on the original version.
Go check out the tune and while you’re at it, grab yourself a free copy of their brand new album Loves Shadow featuring big name collaborations with the likes of Kromestar, Datsik and the angelic voice of fellow Christchurch songstress Yayne.
