TroyBoi is back to flaunt his signature avant-garde bass buoyancy, stepping out on his recent OWSLA tenure, with “The Truth.” The jouncing number is trap-leaning in its overall orientation, but notably leaves the harder-hitting drops denotative of the sub-genre on the shelf this go around. The core constructive focus of “The Truth” is the beat, which staggers and shifts for the duration of the choppy cut. The tune is another hip-inspiriting notch in the London experimentalist’s vast and worldly catalog.
Resounding pops of bass and the assertive declaration of the vocal overlay, “I am the truth / I am the light,” which amplifies the speaker-pummeling power “The Truth” possesses. Deriving a freshness from the glitchy originality of its musical framework, “The Truth” catches TroyBoi doing what’s always set him apart: nuancing the low end.
