Guide To Ilian Tape

Photo by Lisa Lou Kuhn.

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.
