Interview

 
BANDCAMP DAY

„The crisis continues to impact all of us, and artists have been hit especially hard as tours and shows are canceled for the foreseeable future. With such a major revenue stream drying up almost entirely, finding ways to continue supporting artists in the coming months is an urgent priority for anyone who cares about music and the artists who create it.

Bandcamp is waiving their revenue share in order to help artists and labels impacted by the crisis.“

100% of the music and merch you buy on Bandcamp today will go to the artists and labels.

We have a new Ilian Tape Studio Sweater, designed by Anja Lekavski, available on Bandcamp and in our shop. 

Thank you so much for you support!

BEATPORTAL COVER STORY

„As the founders of Ilian Tape, the Zenker Brothers are two key figures of German breakbeat-infused techno. After years of touring, they’ve finally found time to finish their second album. Cristina Plett meets them in Munich to talk work-life balance, spirituality, and the importance of family.“

INVERTED AUDIO REVIEW

„This is music for the heads, a fantastic continuation of Ilian Tape’s recent albums and a creative peak in the Zenker Brothers‘ discography“

ITPS056 ZENKER BROTHERS

It took us 8 years to finally contribute a mix to this series and we hope you enjoy it. We want to deeply thank all the artists and friends that helped us build up this label over the last 13 years.

 

SATELLITE ERA REVIEW

„Sitting near the very top of the best albums of 2020 along with Andrea’s debut released in April on the label, Cosmic Transmission is the Zenkers Brothers‘ magnum opus and one of Ilian Tape’s standout releases in their fabled history.“

MONUMENT REVIEW

„Ilian Tape has had a fantastic 2020, with a number of releases that should be considered among the best of the year, from Andrea’s album to EPs by SurgeonPessimistSkee Mask and others. While Cosmic Transmission might not immediately align with them sonically, it is just as high quality, and the more one listens to it, the more obvious it is that it is a perfect statement of the label’s ethos in its own right.“

RA REVIEW

„The duo’s smoked-out beats, skewed breaks and hotbox haze come together to make a very specific but yet universal style of techno—the Ilian Tape signature.“
