When we started Ilian Tape 10 years ago in 2007, we were both basically kids at the ages of 23 (Dario) and 18 (Marco). There was no plan behind it, no concept, no promotion campaign or any budget, but just an early vision of where it could go. We wanted to build something that lasts. After a few years of playing at parties and producing music, it was the next logical step to start a label. You can clearly see us growing up through the label in terms of artwork, compiling the records and handling things. We made some mistakes along the way and there are surely things we could have done better, but looking back after 10 years now it all makes sense as it was a natural and human development with all its ups and downs.
It was always a very personal project, never about making money, but about creating a platform for music we believe in and building relationships with artists in a transparent and fair way. We really appreciate that we were able to work with so many great artists, who shared the same vision and trusted in us, over all the years. A while ago we moved away from the ordinary release info write ups, because in general writing about music is tricky and who isn’t tired of the typical, full of praise for every detail of a record, release texts?
But this might be starting to get boring for you too, so just buy this lovely triple vinyl package including a poster and download code, light one up and turn up the volume!
One last thing though – we want to deeply thank our parents for teaching us to live our dreams and find out who we really are, our friends for the vibes and honesty, all the artists releasing on the label, all the supporters & fans for buying vinyl and files, all the DJ’s playing out the stuff, all the diggers selling the stuff overpriced on Discogs, all the dancers working out on the dancefloors & all the clubs doing label nights over all the years.

Listen guys, you are an inspiration to me. I’m over here in Sheffield and when i hear this album i feel happy for you, happy to know you, and happy to join you in your vision. I’ve always loved your label, but you’ve blossomed into something very rare out there in the world right now…certainly in the traditional landscape of the scene you’ve emerged out of. This album is so consistent, and that, combining all these artists shows the layers upon layers of curatorial ability you have.
I wish you all the best and hope to god you do this for another 10 years. The world needs artists like you guys, and all the wonderful array of talent you’ve gathered together on your label. Much love to your wonderful mother who’s art i enjoy so much every time you release.
What can i say…this has hit me hard.
Thank you.
Love from Sheffield and my south yorkshire Ravers
