Review: New Zealand trio Truth come up with a superlative contribution to one of the premiere dubstep labels, Deep Medi Musik. In the same vein as DMZ, Kryptic Minds et al, "Amnesia" is a half-stepping nightmare vision full of psychological twists, vintage film samples, ominous atmospherics and crackling SFX. Perfectly poised, it maintains the intrigue right until the end, unerring in approach. "International" on the other hand, kicks off with a more jovial tone, featuring rattling breaks, xylophone beats and curious jungle flavours, the rallying reggae sample calling out above the beats. A fantastic release and an essential for die hard dubstep fans.

Review: Some say the Devil's hands are manicured and sport the finest gemstones. Some say the Devil's hands have love/hate tattooed on them. Others - like us - say the "Devils Hands" are the epitome of beautifully deep, dark dubstep. "Devil's Hands" is a slurring, slab of haunted dub-soul while "I Belong" shows the trio at their softest, most emotional state with sexy subs and a purring vocal. Tempa nail it again? Ain't that the Truth!

Review: The New Zealand based dubstep duo known simply as Truth continue their world domination plan with this devastating release for the Get Darker crew. Following on from their superb "Full Baked" release on Blackbox and last year's Puppets LP, they turn up the heat with "Direct Blow" which fuses Eastern vibes with snarling bass and slamming beats to concoct a seriously heavyweight number. For the flip "Snake" is an altogether more brooding, deeper affair with deadly subs and atmospheric pads. Deep and dark.

Review: Truth steps up with two superlative half-stepping riddims on the Tempa imprint, which really put the dub back into dubstep. First up is the evocatively entitled "Dreams" featuring a gloriously enticing wailing vocal from Yayne in the intro. We are sucked into the main tune as if hypnotized by the warm, murmuring bassline and clip clop beats and bubbling SFX. "Last Time" continues in a similarly dark and mysterious vein, but with more snapping snares, clipped sounds, rolling atmospherics and an insistent drive throughout the track. Utterly excellent from start to finish.

Review: Mala's Deep Medi Musik imprint hasn't put a foot wrong in 2011 with some weighty relentless steppahs from VIVEK and Tunnidge getting the collective thumbs up from the Juno review staff. The label maintains the momentum here - finally unleashing the VIP version of Truth's 09 pressure "Fatman"! Fatalist dread vibes abound though it's the crushing weight of the sub bass that truly captivate. Truth complements this update with "Dreams Never Come True" which churns through heavily chopped machine rhythms and left of centre sampledelica with dizzying ease - making for a track that is probably difficult to dance to, but easy to appreciate!

Review: New Zealand duo Truth are dab hands at deep dubstep science with previous on Deep Medi, Get Darker and Wheel & Deal. Not to mention two killer albums. Here we find them at their most spacious and sedate. "Iron Lung" embodies its mechanical namesake with rhythmic, synthetic wheezes and a breathy, eerie vocal. "Medusa", meanwhile, is an entrancing web of shimmering chimes and windy bass bellows. Delectable deep vibes: Welcome to Truth Street.
