Minimal Violence’s debut album, InDreams, is a start-to-finish, full-throttle ride through raw, high energy techno. Their records for some of Vancouver’s best-known labels – like 1080p and Genero as well as Lobster Theremin and Ninja Tune’s Technicolour - have always captured the exhilarating spirit of their live shows. InDreams bottles up that livewire, punk energy into its most concentrated form yet. Recording on a haphazard collection of hardware machines, with initial takes often live off the floor to capture the raw energy, Ashlee Luk and Lida P are entrenched in Vancouver’s thriving DIY scene and embrace upfront directness in their no-holds-barred ethos. Influenced by early industrial groups and cyberpunk literature, the record’s themes centre around the dystopian ‘InDreams inc.’ megacorp with rave-inspired, cult imagery designed by Kevin McCaughey (Boot Boyz).
