WAKAAN is known for its forward-thinking electronic curation and their latest release is a prime demonstration of that. World-renowned New Zealand-based bass DJ/producer duo TRUTH just released a stunning,diverse, four-track EP titled “Druids” which is out on the esteemed independent label now.
TRUTH are one of New Zealand’s finest creative exports. Respected across the globe since inception, TRUTH have cut a clear pathway through the international dubstep scene with an extensive catalog of groundbreaking projects like The Unexpected EP and Wilderness of Mirrors album. They’ve toured the world many times around and performed at festivals like Shambhala, Outlook Festival & Infrasound.
In addition to rocking crowds at clubs and festivals, they’ve also become in-demand sound designers, their music having been featured in major TV shows like ‘American Horror Story.’ They’ve received numerous awards including ‘Best Electronic Artist’ in the New Zealand Music Awards and they’ve earned support from bass goliaths like Bassnectar, Skream, and Liquid Stranger, to name just a few.
The Druid EP begins fiercely with its colossal, low end-heavy title track, “Druids,” which commands your attention with it’s imaginative vocal sample that explains the history of the druids and gives way to a hypnotic groove throughout. The tension of Druids is relieved with a smoother listen with “Hold Ya Tongue,” which incorporates effervescent chants and flowing water into Truth’s patented dubstep style. The third track, “Anubis,” again showcases the New Zealand duo’s versatility by seamlessly shifting between middle Eastern guitar and other-worldly, warped production punctuated by heavy bass accents. The EP’s eerie, UFO-inspired final track, “Seeing Things,” provides equal doses of haunting accounts of sightings and trippy production to round out the diverse project.
