ZENKER BROTHERS - Cosmic Transmission

The Zenker Brothers present their second album “Cosmic Transmission”. In their own words: “In another time it felt like, only an unpredictable extreme event could change the way we choose to live together. Now it feels so crazy, it can be overwhelming, but always remember we are just a tiny micro spaceship traveling through a gigantic universe. When nothing is safe, all is possible. We are one – one love. M&D”

Zenker Brothers – Immersion [ITLP001]

“We are very happy to present our first album on Ilian Tape. At the beginning of 2014 we moved our two seperate bedroom studios into one and soon after started working on the album. All the tracks were made in about 6 months in our new Ilian Tape Space Studio in Munich. The time felt right to focus on this adventure, but without any pressure. Therefore the process became very natural and we felt free to go wherever the vibe led us. Our intention was to create a very personal and honest sound without any limitations or guidelines. It’s a reflection of all the years we’ve been growing up, working, traveling and playing together and it means a lot to us. But enough said music is not supposed to be described with words, so sit back, close your eyes, light one up and turn up the speakers!”

Zenker Brothers – Stratus Phunk [TRESOR267]

Not much more than a year has passed since the Zenker Brothers presented their debut EP Lion in Mars on Tresor Records. The follow-up record segues perfectly between a triumphant year in the studio and in performance, and a 2014 which promises to take their growing reputation for blazing techno to new heights.

Stenny – Eternal Restriction [IT022]

The Zenker Brothers welcome Italian producer Stenny back into the Illian Tape fold for a third time, with the Eternal Restriction 12″ offering a further refinement on his distinctive blend of heavy bass, loud sonics and rhythmic syncopation. Dario and Marco end the record with a remix of the title track that evens out a few of the kinks without edging too close to being straightforward.

After years of playing and working together side by side, in 2011 Dario and Marco Zenker emerged in official collaboration as Zenker Brothers with ”Berg 10 EP”. Now, they are back with their first release for Tresor, brandishing a matured sound and level of sensitivity yet displayed by either before. ‘Lion In Mars’ is like a fresh breeze billowing through the Tresor vaults. Honing in on signatures from the archive and repackaging them in modern sentiment.

Simple & Thigpen – Licking Peanut Butter [IT014]

Cover art - Simple & Thigpen: Licking Peanut Butter

We are proud to welcome Simple & Thigpen (aka Helix) from Detroit & a small town in southeast Georgia on Ilian Tape for their first collaboration ever. As Peanut Butter is a national dish in the USA since ages, every real American knows how to lick and swallow it the perfect way. So here we go with a 134 BPM swangler that funks from your backyard trying to get your arm hard while you are playing a bit of dart! Freak Seven from Manchester is transforming the original from Ying to Yang through adding his personal slang while designing men strings with jewelry for Alexander Wang. And last but not least the Zenker Brothers adding their incomparable dust in which you all hopefully trust.

Ilian Tape presents the first record from Dario & Marco. The namings of the EP and tracks are inspired by the period when the Zenker Brothers lived in a small village in the Bavarian countryside, but the sound of the release have nothing in common with the Bavarian scenery. The EP includes three deep techno dub infused tracks in the Zenker style.
