In the electronic circuit, few artists have so cohesively centered their identity around a concept that colors their sonic output as Truth x Lies have. Don’t call it a strategy to standing out, although that’s exactly the effect that it’s had—call it an acute attention to the dual possibilities of electronic sound, and watch what Truth x Lies do with it. You won’t want to miss it.

You don’t have truth without lies, nor Ian Bertles without Ryan Howard, as Truth x Lies’ two constituents are known offstage. From this thinking, Truth x Lies’ artistic identity and their concept-driven approach to music production was born. Tonally attuned to two specific sonic counterparts, dark, stimulating tech house with an aggressive, afterhours body to it, and lighter, modern tech house that ebbs with clean control, Truth x Lies touch both sides of the underground. A balancing act of old-school and “new-school” that manifests in envelope-pushing bass lines, synths, and beats, Truth x Lies’ approach embodies a message: their wheelhouse isn’t in one style, it’s all-encompassing.

Having garnered more than 15 million streams across digital streaming platforms and support from Zeds Dead, AC Slater, Wax Motif, Martin Garrix, and Pasquale Rotella, among other dance fixtures, Truth x Lies have carved their presence in the electronic scene, and it’s one that commands respect. In recent years, the duo has been spotted stepping behind the decks at Beyond Wonderland, Output, Analog BK, and LA Marina, providing support for artists such as Dr Fresch, Dom Dolla, and Mercer, while playing hundreds of shows in major cities across the U.S.
