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.“

MIXMAG PREMIERE: ZENKER BROTHERS – SHAKETOWN

„After closing out last year with an outstanding Stenny LP and opening 2020 with a Surgeon label debut, powerful Zeki 808 EP and stunning album from Andrea, Ilian Tape’s form is typically red hot.

Next up the labels founders Zenker Brothers are back with a four-track EP, affirming their tastes and artistry are the backbone making Ilian Tape one of the best labels in the world. It’s titled ‚Mad System‘ and opening track ‚Shaketown‘ combines ominous bass tones with warm analogue textures to uplifting effect.“
