„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.

First we had Immersion by Zenker Brothers, powerful and blazing like fire; then Shreds and Compro, Skee 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.“
