Your Favorite DJs’ Favorite Ilian Tape Tracks

DJs Anthony Parasole, Rebekah, Etapp Kyle and more pick their favorite track from the Zenker Brothers' label to celebrate 10 years of Ilian Tape.

Munich techno” wasn’t much of a thing outside of Germany—until the Zenker Brothers came along. The Bavarian natives started their DJ careers as residents at one of southern Germany’s most legendary nightclubs, Harry Klein—despite family ties with its rival, Rote Sonne. The siblings’ renown grew outside the region with the growing popularity of their label, Ilian Tape, which they launched in 2007. Over the past ten years, the outpost has fostered a stable of new-school techno talent that includes producers like Stenny and Andrea, Sciahri and Skee Mask. Those artists and more feature on A Decade Ilian Tape, a triple-LP compilation celebrating the milestone that was released a few weeks ago. We tapped some of Ilian’s biggest champions, which includes some of techno’s most beloved names (i.e. Marcel Dettmann once penned a recommendation of the Brothers’ album for us), to reflect on the catalog to date and pick out their favorite Ilian cuts.
