Minimal Violence return to Tresor Records with Phase Two of their DESTROY ---> [physical] REALITY [psychic] <--- TRUST series. This five-track 12" kicks off straight into the dust storm of "Dreams for Sale", a Lynchian trip through explosive breakbeat manipulation, sirens and cries deep into the abyss. True to form, Ashlee Luk and Lika P harness raw tensions and lock into the flow on "Mankind". An EBM monster, its bass sequences lay writhing non-stop, over a beat in full propulsion. Drawing to a close, the kick drum falls out leaving a suspended room full of action. The Canadian duo then follows up with the sensational Hard Delivery, a 175bpm hi-NRG gabber barrage. Smeared synths hint at a melody, like a pair of pitched-up foghorns beaten down in a harsh rhythm world, as disfigured barks amp up the pressure. "Prey Drive" is the straightest techno track, its industrial bassline a cornerstone to grip onto, as its elements pile in on top. Closing track "1992" wears its identity on its sleeve, a pure rave track inspired by the early '90s sound. Distorted drums and synthesized strings coat a gnarled breakbeat with paranoid malice. Sounding like nothing else right now, its influences are chewed-up and spat-out. There is no sound capable of sitting still, just a mutant sonic environment of destructive movement. 180 gram vinyl; includes download code.
