Tuba 003 are pleased to announce their latest release, from New Zealand’s slickest dubstep export, Truth.
“All Alone” The headline track of this huge new release is a boisterous, spiky number, revelling in the darker side of dance music. Representing Truth’s audacious approach to bass music, “All Alone” builds soaring sculptural soundscapes, before making its serpentine ambush with snare drum attacks. Rupturing basslines and emotionally charged with screaming vox, “All Alone” screams insanity, depravity and iniquity.
“Good and Evil” Introspective, sinister ambient sonics are counterbalanced by an undertow of carefully composed wobble, demonstrating once again Truth’s senstivity to crafting densely textural, shadowy tracks, that invoke the animalistic forces of human nature, and juxtpose them with the euphoric release of hedonism. Like a tender New Zealand lamb to the slaughter, “Good and Evil” takes lashings from saw wave basslines, a sacrifice to the God of bass music.
Truth are a critically acclaimed DJ/Producer duo (Andre Fernandez,Tristan Roake). Previous collaborations include he Nextmen, Miss Dynamite, Shapeshifter, The Black Seeds, Optimus Gryme, Silkie, Kromestar, Tunndige and countless others. With three European tours, two American tours, and numerous Australian and Asian dates under their belts, Truth have ammassed a cult following on the international scene, building a presence through DJ support from Mala, Skream, Joe Nice, Youngsta, Hatcha and N-Type, giving their music a core presence at key clubnights like DMZ in London, Club Love in New York and with support coming in from key radio stations such as BBC Radio One, Kiss and Rinse FM in the UK.
TUBA is an artist-run vinyl imprint based in Brooklyn, specialising in forward-thinking bass. Mean little sister to the mighty Dubs Alive label, TUBA pushes new releases from the finest producers on the contemporary bass music scene.

The second release from Dubs Alive’s sister label, TUBA, features the deep and intense sound of the UK’s J:Kenzo. His A side track, Nocturnal Feelings Is a dark, serious work that brilliantly juxtaposes hard bass lines, frantic percussion, and atmospheric depth.
The B side debuts The Spit Brothers on vinyl with Beg to Differ, a sub driven, meditative, and minimalistic affair.
The record closes with DJG’s Reformat of Beg to Differ. This forward thinking track showcases DJG’s intelligent approach to bass music. His reformat balances the deep with the dance oh-so-well.
Available on 12” vinyl July 4th , digitally July 18th.
I just wanted to put up a quick note apologizing for our silence these past few months. I’ve relocated to Brooklyn from San Francisco and due to the upheaval, some of my responsibilities fell by the way side. Not to worry, I’m back and ready to update you about Dubs Alive, our new vinyl imprint, TUBA, and all related news!
