'Truth & Lies have curated some of the best nights over the first 12 months of Rough Trade Nottingham - with content diverse as the crowd who follow their work. Far more than simply DJs or promoters, T & L content is always making the right statement - artistically, socially and politically.'  - Kyle Hougham (Rough Trade Nottingham Manager)

‘Not for the weak, they get it into the last minute. You gave us no break..That was wild, was blown away! Rocking and dancing to Archie Shepp = Unreal!’ - Dave Davis (Sun Ra Arkestra) 

'It (T&L's takeover of The Old Gramophone Stage at Houghton Festival 2017) was excellent and I can’t count how many amazing comments I have had back about your night, everyone found it a relieving break from the more heads down sounds on offer and really went away with some amazing memories so thank you for all your hard work for putting it together...It was also a pleasure to work with a group of people that got on with it regardless of the situation..' - Tom Elkington (Gottwood Festival)

'I thought your curation on Venezuela and the tropics was spot on and it was great seeing so many people engaged with the content, music and art at the festival. Thank you and Justin for your work on this and hopefully we’ll be able to collaborate on future projects.'  - Vanessa Cappelli (Gottwood Festival)
