Minimal Violence have shared another track from their forthcoming debut LP on Ninja Tune’s Technicolour imprint, ‘InDreams’.
‘June Anthem’ is an absolutely mad hardcore cut that represents the duo of Ashlee Luk and Lida P’s raw, punk approach to club music and rave forms perfectly. Check it out below.
“‘June Anthem’ best captures the raw energy of our live sets,” the duo explain. “Thrash, dance, head-bang or whatever, it's a ball of pure energy.”
A new London club series, No ID, aims to spotlight South Asian DJs and artists, kicking off with a Wednesday night offering at Rye Wax on 27th March.

Minimal Violence have signed to Ninja Tune sub-label Technicolour for their debut album, 'InDreams'.
The duo have taken influence from early industrial music and cyberpunk literature, setting out their hardware-centric sound across nine tracks. The title track can be heard below. It takes its name from a fictional dystopian corporation called 'InDreams inc.'
The album's release on April 26th follows on from the release of their 12" 'MVX / U41A', which also arrived via Technicolour last year. Past releases from the duo have come via labels such as Lobster Theremin and 1080p.

Helena Hauff has dropped two new tracks from her forthcoming album, 'Qualm', which arrives next Friday, 3rd August, via Ninja Tune.
The Hamburg-based electro and techno DJ and producer has shared 'Hyper-Intelligent Genetically Enriched Cyborg' and 'It Was All Fields Around Here When I Was A Kid'. These follow tasters of 'Qualm' and 'Qualms', which we got our hands on in June, both of which also feature on the new record— her first full-length outing in almost three years.
Helena Hauff has confirmed her new album, 'Qualm', will be released on 3rd August through Ninja Tune.
We first reported on news of an email between the Hamburg-based producer and DJ and the label last week, in which she described the work as 'raw', since going on to state via press release that her intention is to "create something powerful without using too many instruments and layers". It's her first album since 2015's 'Discreet Desires'.

Ninja Tune appear to be building their own branded hardware delay unit. According to leaked photos from Gearporn.Berlin, the 'Zen Delay' is a multi-made delay unit with a valve signal path, low-pass, high-pass and bandpass filter, MIDI in and Drive knob. While none of the tech specs are official, it's clear from the front panel that there are four modes of Delay – BBD for classic 80s-chip delay, ping-pong for left-and-right channel delay effects, tape delay and standard stereo delay.
