Ilian Tape is at the forefront of techno right now, everything about the label from the design of the centre labels to the track titles and artists involved is unique and stands tall above all other contemporary labels operating in the scene right now. The labels sound focuses on a truly immersive but tough breakbeat lead sound that has a hefty dub heavy iced out 4x4 vibe channeling through out. The labels sound stands somewhere in the middle ground of industrial, dub, jungle, and techno. But don't let this trick you into thinking Ilian Tape is a label you can easily categorise, releases from Jonas Kopp have seen them dive into deep and cinematic ambient passages whilst Stenny & Andrea's rolling breakbeat techno crossed the borders of techno and drum & bass with startling uniqueness that just floors us every time.
Ran by brothers Dario and Marco Zenker and featuring a small and tight-knit group of producers, they have released some of the most stunning techno records you are gonna hear right now, from Skee Mask, Stenny & Andrea (both together and solo) Andrés Zacco, Djrum, Struction and Dario and Marco's solo work and together as the Zenker Brothers they have a unique sound that is immediately recognisable as their own.
Ilian Tape is up there with the finest labels techno has ever known, from Sandwell District, Downwards & Basic Channel to Underground Resistance & DIN. We are hugely excited to say, Dario and Marco have compiled a guide to their favourite releases on the label with this guide to Ilian Tape, a perfect entry point for those new to the labels sound and a timely reminder of the records released so far.
This slammer was on Stenny’s first record he ever did, and already showcases the wide range of styles and the alent he has. Released in 2013, this still sounds from the far future.
A pure techno love song in classic Munich Techno style tradition. Soulful, playful, emotional and spaced out for the lovers.
Our favorite track ever from Jonas, heavy deep down under aquatic vibes for traveling or dreaming, but also on the club this has some impact played at the right time.
Another debut heater from Sciahri’s first record. Super funky cosmic drum bouncers for the jumpers. Hailing from Florence, this is a talent to watch.
Taken from our debut LP „Immersion“ from last year, for us this track feels like heart of the album. It includes all our hope, love, fear and funkiness and of course our appreciation for our dog Inti (R.I.P) and our hometown Munich.
A lovely trippin groover from our long friend Andres Zacco. Tango style break beat with a mysterious atmosphere.
From Stenny & Andrea’s stunning first 12“ record. Swinging heavy hitting drums and tripping melodies. Play it loud and enjoy the proper Turin vibes.
From his high flying debut album Shred. It's an emotional treat full of positive energy. Sit back and relax!
Slammin dancefloor heat on this jam from Dario. Feel the funk and move it baby!
