FIREPOWER RECORDS TO RELEASE TRUTH’S INCREDIBLE 14-TRACK ALBUM “HOLLOW WORLD” JUNE 10
"We titled this album "Hollow World" to reflect the concept that our lives are full of illusion. The world as we know it has been constructed of facades by those in power. The "hollow" concept relates to a world, a life, that has no real meaning to it. The question is, what is behind this hollow exterior? The Truth is out there...."
Legendary duo Truth, exhibit their full musical versatility and mastery on their delicious new 14-track album, "Hollow World", available June 10th on Firepower Records. The infamous New Zealanders Andre Fernandez and Tristan Roake, aka Truth, have been championed as leaders in the scene years ago, with their one of a kind production and DJ sets which have massed them worldwide praise throughout the process. Now, again revealing their hard work and overwhelming creativity, they have forged a top notch album that fires from smooth dark deep house to malevolent bass-bin flexing dubstep, all sinister enough to make even fairy-tales feel like your darkest dreams. Their earth shattering creation truly shows us that light does not necessarily triumph evil, although they have plenty of both sounds on this amazing collection of their musical art.
"The album is a story--it has a cinematic feel. Our aim was to create a suspended reality, so the listeners felt like they were in another world, or even dimension. The music grabs you and drags you into the strange, murky depths of the world of Truth. "
"Hollow World", the title track, is packed with vibes, and enough emotional intensity and angst to leave you feeling like a maniac, free falling without a parachute. From there, we land on "Madman", featuring vocals from the notorious UK rapper Flowdan, who reveals to us why he's a king, as he drops murder on the track like a calculated psycho with his finger on the trigger.
"Working with people like Flowdan has been a long time coming. It was 9 or 10 months ago at Outlook festival when we first connected and came up with the idea of collaborating, and finally here it is! We couldn't be more stoked with the result. Linking up with Joker was a happy coincidence, both members of Truth on tour and in San Francisco when Joker rolled through town and ended up crashing at our mate Taso's pad. Naturally we got in the studio and just smashed the track out."
"Evil Eye" was the incredible result. Truth and Joker to add some of that purple flavour that we have all come to love and respect. Tracks like "London" and "Skin Flick" drop four to the floor, and truly exhibit Truth's versatility with their own dark hybrid take on deep house.
"We've put everything that is Truth into this album, and it feels great! To us, this is our best release to date. The whole point was to carry the aesthetic of what we do into one cohesive whole, which is why we decided to break out from just doing stuff around 140bpm. It's more than any genre, there's a Truth sound, which we are pushing."
It's clear that, no matter who's tuning in, the album "Hollow World" is guaranteed to strike true. Truth's amazing musicianship and quality production capabilities are put on full display, and will take your ears on an aural roller coaster through the amazing deep depths of low frequency euphoria. Be honest with yourself and recognize the Truth."
