Tresor welcome Minimal Violence to the label, starting with the first chapter in a series of three records entitled DESTROY ---> [physical] REALITY [psychic] <--- TRUST. At the furthest edges of their idiosyncratic brand of ferocious hardware techno, this first EP, Phase One, reveals the Vancouver duo to be expertly out on a limb. Mirroring the explosive cut and thrust of their live sets, their recorded output extends a metaphysical rave. Throughout, Ash Luk and Lida P cut their cinematic melodies into a clattering rave hole, unceasingly revising the gravitational pull in each direction. "Ravebomb" finds a route of no-nonsense with its unhinged endorphin rush of surging EBM style bass and rough-handed rhythms. It is followed up by an alternate version of "Ravebomb", the "Fire Mix", which casts its elements into a heady psychoactive cloud on a collision course with its kick drum. Glimpses of a rhythmic waywardness coat "Perfect Rendition", full of tape tics and wobble, with a push to '90s UK, beat experimentations and the pull of arching hookworms. Closing out the EP is "The Next Screen Is Death", with a dystopian '80s wave sound, where short snippets of sampled mush imbue disturbed synth stabs, while arpeggiated basses drive with momentum a feverous descent in tandem with trance-echoing melodies.
