Dario and Marco Zenker's label will celebrate the milestone with a batch of new tracks.
Label bosses Dario and Marco Zenker have assembled 12 unreleased tracks from themselves, friends and associates. Longtime friend Regen steps up with a rare solo production, while label regulars Skee Mask, Andrea, Stenny and Andrés Zacco also contribute. Dario and Marco each provide one solo track alongside a collaboration as Zenker Brothers, while German veteran Roger 23, who debuted on the label with Extended Play last June, steps up with a solo track. Shed, an artist long admired by Dario and Marco, delivers a tune as Seelow. Each copy of A Decade Ilian Tape will come with a poster and download code.
Launched with Lee Van Dowski and Dachshund's Confusion Is Sex EP in 2007, Ilian Tape is among techno's best-known labels. Its roots are in minimalist house and techno, but recent years have seen it explore a tougher, more rhythmic sound. Read our 2014 label of the month feature for more.
"It was always a very personal project, never about making money, but about creating a platform for music we believe in and building relationships with artists in a transparent and fair way," Dario and Marco say. "We really appreciate that we were able to work with so many great artists."
