Про Zenker Brothers
The Zenker Brothers are Munich-based real brothers and owners of the record label Ilian Tape. Since the late seventies, the Bavarian capital has been a non-dwindling source of advanced musical creativity. Especially electronic music “Made in Munich” has gained worldwide reputation through famous artists like Giorgio Moroder, Richard Bartz, Disko B Records or DJ Hell during the last decades. The Zenker Brothers emerge from this solid foundation and share a vision with their own approach of contemporary dance music.
It was the elder one of the brothers, Dario, who first found his way into Munich’s flourishing scene of electronic dance music during the late nineties. He had been a huge fan of hip-hop and dub when he stumbled into the neon lights of the omnipresent goa parties that at many clubs. His first set of turntables was a gift from his parents when he was 15 years old and he quickly found himself at the DJ booth. In 2006 his younger brother Marco who also was an enthusiastic supporter of hip-hop and reggae music went to see Dario perform and fell in love with the unique vibe of techno and house parties. It was only a question of time when these two artists and brothers would channel their creativity and start to collaborate. In 2007 they founded the label Ilian Tape together with some long lasting friends in order to establish a platform for their own productions, and in 2012 they started playing their notorious b2b sets. Rooted in the legacy of Detroit and techno, house, dub, rap music and breakbeats, the two brothers managed to define their own trademark sound over the years with their own productions and their own way of running a label.
