Operating out of the murky depths of Canada, Minimal Violence is a duo made up of Ashlee and Lida, a pair who have released a formidable array of music on the likes of Jungle Gym Records, Lobster Theremin, 1080p and more. The pair have crafted a niche for themselves amidst the hazy world of rugged electronics and rough around the edges fun. Their music has allowed them to travel far and wide with a hectic schedule and a number of European appearances including Tresor in Berlin in the coming weeks.
Needless to say the duo have an incredibly robust take on music which is blatantly obvious when delving through their influences as you are about to discover below...
They build a playlist featuring the likes of Psychic TV, David Wojnarowicz, Joey Beltram and more. See below:

IKE YARD - CHERISH 8
Ashlee - "This song is terrifying. The deadpan vocals standing against the bareness of the instrumentation with that breathy reverb filling out all the space in-between. I get a chill down my spine listening to this. This song straddles some invisible line between no-wave, industrial and electro."
