Olin Caprison began performing as VIOLENCE in 2010. They released on various net-labels, before. VIOLENCE’s first physical release, REPTILE/Hand-Me-Downs From Heaven, was released by Steak au Zoo Records in 2012. In 2015, they became one of the featured artist's on C-ORE, the premiere compilation of Mykki Blanco's DogFood Music Group. Subsequently, VIOLENCE toured alongside Mykki Blanco and Yves Tumor. In 2016 VIOLENCE signed to NON Worldwide and released “A Ruse of Power”. In 2017 VIOLENCE released “Human Dust to Fertilize the Impotent Garden” with New York based label Purple Tape Pedigree. Their compositions are known for their complexity as well as lyrical content that guides the listener into a meditation on the oppressive nature of history, and the idea of archetypal memory and its accompanied stigmas. As the artist himself says: his palette consists of “the shattered micro-architecture of an unprejudiced, undiscerning, cosmopolitan, anti-culture massive music archive”. He “dissect, obliterate, the shattered remains of the ‘genre’, utilizing the mythopoeia behind each cultural movement”. At the Lava Festival II he will perform on a second day of the festival, that is May 12.
