Truth Is Light

Justin’s Top Five Tracks of the Year

This year I discovered Truth Is Light Records, a great Canadian label releasing simple edits of brilliant, largely obscure, genre-unspecific gems. I could’ve chosen most any of the records I ordered from them this year, but “Be Thankful”, the A-side off the first record in a limited edition 45 series they’re doing, got the most deck time. Slightly disco-ey, thoroughly old-school electro, it toes just the right line to make it the perfect bridge between house, modern soul and all kinds of other tracks, and though it’s a tool, it’s never outshined by what comes before or after it. (Sadly, I couldn’t find a version of the track to post here, but you can listen to it on the TIL page.)

A Label We Love: Truth Is Light

Back in February, when Floating Points came to play with us, he played this magical edit of Danny Hunt’s What’s Happening To Our Love Affair – sending us right over to the booth to find out what it was. Ever since, we’ve been wearing it out ourselves and falling in love with the everything else on the label, Truth Is Light.

Run by Jason Lev, a serious record collector based in Vancouver, BC, Truth Is Light digs up rare R&B and disco that is always surprising and always exactly what we want to hear. The label’s website is simple but useful: You can hear all their releases, order them directly from Lev, and you can download or stream a few great mixes – like this one. Check it!
