Tresor Records will welcome Minimal Violence to the label, starting with the first chapter in a series of three records entitled DESTROY —> [physical] REALITY [psychic] <— TRUST, to be released over the next 12 months.

The Vancouver, Canada duo released an album on Ninja Tune offshoot Technicolour last year, following outings on Lobster Theremin and 1080p. We’re told that their Tresor debut sits “at the furthest edges of their idiosyncratic brand of ferocious hardware techno,” and that this first EP, Phase One, mirrors the explosive cut and thrust of their live sets.

“Throughout, Ash Luk and Lida P cut their cinematic melodies into a clattering rave hole, unceasingly revising the gravitational pull in each direction,” Berlin the label adds.
