Its been a while but Dubstep Wednesdays are set to become a part of the Auckland landscape once again.

Steppas Unite! launches with NZ's biggest Dubstep export, Truth on April 14th and will be running every Wednesday at Juice Bar throughout 2010.

Truth, undoubtedly New Zealand’s biggest Dubstep export; have been making a huge impact around the world with their heavy bassline riddims. Truth have a style that defies categorization; encompassing an array of melodies, vocals and spacious beats that range from half-step stompers to the deeper profound realms of sound; all with one common element which underpins every track - a heavy bassline riddim that lays sheer force on any system heavy enough to handle it.

Truth’s big riddims have been quickly snatched up by a number of established labels such as Mala’s seminal label ‘Deep Medi Musik’ with the huge 12”, (The Fatman / Stolen Children). Skream has picked up four Truth tunes (Stay / The Future/ Wednesday / Bubba Ho Step) and will be releasing them as an double vinyl EP 12” for his label ‘Disfigured Dubs’. Australian label Aquatic Lab has released two 12" Truth vinyls (Terror Planet/ Disappear and Revelation/ Lost At Sea)and have plans to release a Truth LP in 2010.

Truth have also released a 12” Vinyl on New Zealand based label ‘Optimus Gryme Recordings’ (Payback / Optimus Gryme- Immortal- Truth remix), along with a bunch of remixes for artists such as The Nextmen, Ms Dynamite and Silverclub to name a few. Also, Alix Perez has included a Truth collaboration on his debut album '1984' which has been receiving huge applause. 2010 is set to be a massive year for Truth, with some big releases in the pipeline including a second 12” release on Deep Medi, a 12” on Boka Records and the much anticipated Truth Album.

Truth’s dubplates have been receiving vast DJ support from around the globe with artists including; Mala, Skream, Benga, N-Type and Mary Anne Hobbs to mention a few, with their beats being dropped at shows from venues as far away as Club Love in New York City to DMZ in London, from Double Happy in NZ to Sonar in Spain, as well as featuring on Radio shows including the BBC's Radio One and ‘Rinse FM’.

2009 saw Truth embark on a comprehensive 14 date tour of Europe and Asia, playing gigs from Hong Kong to Paris and which included an appearance at the seminal DMZ night in Brixton, London. DJ wise - they have been honing their skills for years alongside the worlds best, as well as mixes for radio shows and podcasts, each receiving huge accolades from the lucky listeners, you can be sure their set will be a set to remember.

In 2010, Truth release their debut album “Puppets” – Due for release May/June on Aquatic Lab records. The 12” sampler for the LP “Burglar/ Dead Silence” is due for release very soon!

Truth will be packing the dubs for this show including material from their forthcoming releases as well as huge collaborations with artists such a Silkie, Joker, Coki & Loefah, Jakes, D-Bridge, TC, Kito and Instra:Mental.
