Unified Highway – comprised of Rebelution vocalist/guitarist Eric Rachmany and producer/DJ/ remixer Amp Live (formerly of Zion I)—has just dropped a bass-heavy remix of “The Truth.” The song was remixed by SubDocta, who has been quickly establishing himself as one of the most in demand remix producers and DJs in the bass music scene. The original track is from Unified Highway’s critically acclaimed sophomore album, Headlines, which was released in 2020 on Easy Star Records. Considering the song’s lyrics and intention, there couldn’t be a better time for this remix to arrive than during the final week of the Trump presidency, a period that saw an unprecedented and scary shift towards misinformation and outright lying coming from the people in charge.
“I have been a longtime fan of SubDocta,” says Amp Live. “I wanted SubDocta to do this remix, because he is the best electronic producer I know of that combines organic and electronic elements. I thought he would keep the integrity of the original, while pushing the song further left.”
The album version of “The Truth” is a spaced out, dubby song that demands truth during the age of misinformation. Eric Rachmany states, “That was one of the last songs we wrote for the album. It couldn’t come at a more relevant time considering all the different statistics and statements being presented by our government and media. It makes you wonder what is truly factual. Even without many lyrics, this song tells its own story instrumentally.”
