Minimal Violence

Lobster Theremin, Technicolour, Tresor – CA

Minimal Violence is a collaboration between Ash Luk and Lida P. The duo, who focus on the live production of electronic music through the use of hardware sequencers, drum machines and synths, have been performing together since early 2015. They derive inspiration from early electronic and minimal synth works while integrating heavier UK rave and hardcore vibes. From years of playing in punk bands, Luk’s penchant for the heavier and more aggressive side of dance music is most evident in its infiltration of the duo’s live set. The acid tinged sets straddle the line between a relentless assault of the senses and jarring moments of disorienting chaos held together by oppressive kicks and scattered breakbeats. Previously having released on labels such as Ninja Tune imprint Technicolour and Lobster Theremin the duo has most recently launched into the first EP in their three part series with Tresor Records with the second on its way before the end of 2020.
