Dario and Marco Zenker continue their label's incredible run of form.
Like many of the Ilian Tape artists, the Zenkers enjoy experimenting with different moods and energies. They often take a hammer to techno's four-on-the-floor template, though the vibe is rarely as sweet and pretty as on "Shaketown," which pairs fizzing breakbeats with melodic flourishes in a way that feels very Detroit. Sometimes, the brothers forego kick drums altogether. "Outside" definitely isn't ambient—the synths are too intense, the hi-hats too fierce. It's a sunrise jam, with an epic, three-note melody built for those pay-off moments at the peak of a set.
