Minimal Violence: InDreams

Vancouver duo Minimal Violence have made the undisputed best dark rave album of the year. Using nothing but analog hardware, they play fast, heavy, nightmarish techno that seems designed to trigger fear and excitement in equal measure. They mix vaguely trancey synths and gabber-ish beats on tracks like the punishing “June Anthem” and it never sounds contrived or cheesy. Then there’s “New Hard Catch”, which is somewhere between EBM and breakbeat hardcore, and just as awesome. “InDreams” is the album’s anthem, with an instantly iconic melody, and a remix by Cardopusher is rawer and more goth. Fantastic stuff.
