Image: 1584660 Tempa082 isTruth's third release on Tempa, following last year's Devil's Hands. Featuring two tracks - 'Empire' and acollaboration with Stylust Beats titled 'Chicks & Drugs'. Both retain the cinematic, expansive aesthetic that the NewZealand duo have established on their previous releases for Tempa and labels such as Deep Medi and Disfigured Dubz.

The chimes and industrial drones that open 'Empire' rack up tension to snapping point, before the track grinds to life insalvoes of intricate percussion, plunging sub- bass and the crunch of metal on metal. With its vaguely tongue-in-cheekopening chant, 'Chicks & Drugs' seems a slight departure from the intense, dread sens- ations of 'Empire'. But when it drops inpunctuated tidal waves of sub-bass and a sparse halfstep beat, it's just as intense and immersive as we've come toexpect from the duo.
