ZENKER BROTHERS FOLD RECORDING

„Marco and Dario Zenker founded Ilian Tape back in 2007, wrapping a double dose of determination and brilliance into the project, never once faltering despite initial adversity. Taking on roles of guiders, curators, instructors and products of the label, the duo have moved from their preliminary groundwork of minimal to eventually sinking their teeth into the miscellany of breakbeat, electro, techno, IDM and more which has become the tried and tested formula for success which they now continue to develop and refine.

Listen back to their landmark appearance at Ilian Tape’s last 24 hour takeover from when they blew the roof off FOLD with their 3 hour long set.“

EARMILK REVIEWS MAD SYSTEM

„Chi Boost“ is where the party starts. The four-to-the-floor bassline could easily fade into a run of the mill techno track, but the Zenker Brothers are masters at work when it comes to making music interesting. The pounding bass is quickly joined by nimble works of percussion and rhythms that are impossible not to dance to; if anyone’s making techno fun again, it’s these two.

MAD SYSTEM RA REVIEW

„“Chi Boost,“ the second of four cuts on the new Zenker Brothers‘ EP, might be their best track since „Berg 10″ in 2011. It’s a monster of a tune, barrelling and funky. Listening to it in lockdown, with proper club soundsystems a distant dream, is extremely frustrating.“

PITCHFORK REVIEWS RITORNO

„Ritorno is a remarkably confident and cohesive work. Nearly a decade in the making, it’s Andrea’s first big statement, and proof that this low-key Italian producer has something valuable to add to the conversation.“

RA REVIEWS & RECOMMENDS RITORNO

„The album is an artistic high point for Andrea, capping off a stunning run of techno full-lengths on Ilian Tape. The label and its artists have a keen understanding of how to tackle an album: don’t shed the club approach entirely, and push the envelope without leaving your comfort zone.“

SOUL FEEDER REVIEWS RITORNO

„And here’s the point: it should be clear to us now that Ilian Tape is not just a label. It’s a sound. It’s a mood. It’s an artistic identity, consistent also on the visual side, with release artworks that aid the music to fixate its identity among peers and fans alike. After hearing Ritorno, I went back through Ilian’s previous albums. I like to think of them as a coherent ecosystem containing the four elements. First we had Immersion by Zenker Brothers, powerful and blazing like fire; then Shreds and ComproSkee Mask’s double bill: spacious, gauzy and sometimes misty, just like air; back in November, Stenny brought things down to earth with robust, more stripped-down beats and a darker, heavier mood; now it’s time to be submerged by water, Andrea’s ever-shifting percussions and emotional pads flowing like waves and tides.“

ANDREA INTERVIEW

„I really feel part of a family and this is an important aspect. Every new release is surprisingly good and I’m always really motivated to work on new music and send it to the Dario and Marco, especially thinking that it can contribute to the continuous progress of the label.

There is a lot of freedom to experiment and professionalism in all decisions. Also the fact of being in constant contact with them and having always immediate feedback has never made me consider to release my music somewhere else.“
