Image: 1581110 New Zealand's Truth - the duo of Andre Fernandez and Tristan Roake - put an expansive, cinematic twist on the deeply rooted sounds of pure dubstep. Crushing bass pressure and all-pervading sensations of dread remain the hallmarks of their sound, but previous releases through Tempa, Deep Medi and Disfigured Dubz have also been steeped in soft-focus melody and meditative atmospheres. That's made them distinctive, glimmering highpoints in DJ sets by dubstep scene figurehead Youngsta, as well as the likes of Digital Mystikz and Hatcha.

*Devil's Hands is the duo's second release for Tempa, following 2011's Dreams, and offers a pair of intricate, smoky and ocean-deep dancefloor riddims. 'Devil's Hands' plays off a delicious tension between sweet and sinister: beautiful, chiming melodies abruptly plunge downward into great chasms of sub-bass, with percussion stripped away to leave the fewest possible elements needed to make bodies move.

'I Belong' pushes that dichotomy to even further extremes: a stunningly minimalist, pulsing backdrop is paired with a sung vocal from Yayne. She drifts buoyant and elegant in the midrange, carried along in the track's slipstream, while piano melodies and tendrils of melodic fog gradually unfurl around her.
