The next release on Ninja Tune‘s Technicolour comes in the shape of a two-track EP from Minimal Violence

Formed in 2015 the duo, consisting of Ashlee Luk and Lida P, have a string of releases to date with labels such as Lobster Theremin, 1080p, and Jungle Gym Records. They also make up two parts of Sacred Sound Club, an artist collective, label, and event series focused on shifting the narrative of the Vancouver music scene towards its heavier more experimental community. 

This new two-track release, their Technicolour debut, was recorded in the Autumn of 2017 at Vancouver’s Deep Blue,  a non-profit space. It’s their first music to be recorded outside their usual home production space. “It feels like that separation has had a distinct impact on how we write,” the duo explain. “The division of time spent in the studio tracking in ideas vs time spent at home refining those ideas lent to a new workflow.” 

The result is a record that “intends to reduce pop music to its emotive qualities and apply that abstract nostalgia back into dance tracks,” the label explains.
