The club boasts a formidable team of resident DJs (some of whom have been playing since inception) who have, over the years, become some of the most respected and in-demand names in the industry. New management has brought new energy and new ideas— the club has undergone major renovations and brought out top global talent to keep party-goers enthralled. Cosmic Gate, Sasha, Ferry Corsten, Lee Burridge, Silicone Soul, Sister Bliss and Style of Eye are only a few names on a long list of cutting edge acts who have thrilled Truth’s clubbing contingent over the years.
We chatted to some of Truth’s resident DJs for their thoughts on the clubs twelve year legacy.
“Truth is every DJ’s dream, a edgy venue where you can play up-front underground music ‘til the sun comes up. Throughout my 16 year career, I can honestly say that Truth has been the most influential club I have ever played at.” ~ Ricardo da Costa (Resident since 2000)

“I can honestly say that I have never been more honoured and grateful to be a part of Truth for 12 years. It’s been the most amazing journey, there has been no club like Truth in SA. All the great memories I feel like it’s my home away from home. May we have many more years of great music and rockin’ parties.” ~ DJ Speedy (Resident since 1999)
“Happy birthday Truth, it’s been an amazing rollercoaster ride, I can remember clearly back in the day the outside floor and what that was like, then my decision to take on the upstairs floor sometime later and seeing it grow through the years to become an earpiece for the future. Big thanks to the DJs, management and Vik— I hope we have many more happy good years together. It’s been quite a trip— worth every moment. Also thanks to all of you that keep a open mind and embrace what we do, you help us make upstairs@truth very special. Bring on 2012!” ~ Karmi (Resident since 1999)
“Since breaking into Truth in early 2010, it has been the pinnacle of the “underground” for me. Having the opportunity to play “COOL MUSIC” that I could never play anywhere else – and have no better satisfaction than seeing a packed floor outside at 4AM go off to my selection! A true legend and proud to be a part of it !” ~ Kyle Worde (Resident since 2010)
You’ll be able to catch all of the above along with four international guests, Leon Bolier, P.H.A.T.T, Jeff Doubleu & Ummet Ozcan on Saturday 10th December at Truth.
