Listen : Minimal Violence’s MVX

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, intrinsically linked to the punk roots of the city’s underground club culture. Their penchant for the heavier and more aggressive side of dance music is most evident in its infiltration of the duo’s often raw and disorientating live set. Drawing on Luk’s years of experience playing in punk bands, they combine hardware sequencers, drum machines and synths, to weave together acid tinged compositions that derive inspiration from early electronic and minimal synth through to heavier UK rave and hardcore.

“MVX / U41A” is released on 12″ (with sticker insert) and digitally on 1st June 2018.
