Minimal Violence announces final EP in Tresor trilogy, becomes solo project

Tresor is lining up the release of the final instalment in a trilogy of EPs from Minimal Violence.

Spanning five tracks, ‘Phase Three’ in the ‘DESTROY —> [physical] REALITY [psychic] <— TRUST’ series is the first release to emerge from Minimal Violence since the project shrunk from a duo to the solo moniker of Ash Luk. One track on the release features Luk’s stepfather, Mad Johnny, who played in metal and industrial bands while Luk was growing up.

A press release accompanying the announcement of the new EP explains that “the departure of long-time collaborator Lida P., in conjunction with the hormonal and physical changes beginning with Ash in their own journey as a transgender artist, led to the culminating chapter of Transformation and Transcendence originally outlined by the duo when creating the three-part series framework”.

The trilogy began in early 2020, with the second part of the series arriving early last year.

‘Phase Three’ is out on Tresor on 4th March. Listen to lead track ‘We Suffocate On The Violence Of Light’ below.
