Entropy is back to 宀 Club for its monthly Techno showcase with a huge booking, inviting the the Zenker Brothers, Marco and Dario from Munich.
Residents of the best club in Munich called “Blitz” with multiple releases on their own and very respected label “Ilian Tape”, Marco and Dario Zenker Brothers have both a career as a duo and on their own. Acclaimed for the past 8 years for their huge techno yet groovy sets which brought them to play regularly at Berghain or Tresor in Berlin, Razzmatazz in Barcelona, Concrete in Paris or Fabric in London, and all over the world in the most respected parties and festivals. Most probably the biggest Techno booking we have ever made.
不久於2007年二人與朋友成立廠牌Ilian Tape，發行個人作品。2012年開始於台上以B2B DJ set形式演出。嚴重受到底特律之音Techno、House，還有Dub、Rap和Breakbeats音樂影響，神奇地兩兄弟發展出屬於自己的聲音。除了於自己廠牌發行外，也曾在Tresor和Marcel Fengler的IMF imprint發行作品。由睡房製作人漸變成專業製作人，二人於2015年正式推出首張大碟「Immersion」。
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, only to name a few. Right now it’s time for the Zenker Brothers to emerge from this solid foundation, and share a vision with their own definition of contemporary dance music.
自上世紀七十年代起，拜仁首都慕尼黑有著豐富的音樂發展，特別是其電子音樂，無形地被印上「Made in Munich」之時，過去十年經Giorgio Moroder、Richard Bartz、Disko B Records、DJ Hell等等重要人物被世界所發掘。出身自慕尼黑的Zenker Brothers是時間衝出家鄉向世界展現他們心中的現代跳舞。
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 was a huge fan of Hip Hop and Dub when he stumbled into the neon lights of the omnipresent Goa parties that got staged in many clubs. His first set of turntables was a gift from his parents at the age of fifteen and he quickly found himself at the other side of the dance floor. In 2006 his younger brother Marco, who also was an enthusiastic supporter of Hip Hop and Reggae music – apart from being quite a talented skateboarder -, went to see Dario perform and fell in love with the unique vibe of Techno and House parties. This night was a crucial turning point in any sense.
It was only a question of time when these two artists and brothers would canalise their creativity and start to work together. In 2007 they founded the label Ilian Tape 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 by building a fundament with patience. Besides focusing on Ilian Tape they have released records on such notable labels as Tresor or Marcel Fengler’s IMF imprint. In 2015 they released their first album called Immersion, which was the next natural step and heart project after they moved their two bedroom studios together in 2013.
身為慕尼黑著名夜店Blitz的駐場DJ，Marco和Dario兩兄弟已經在自家廠牌Ilian Tape發行過多張作品。Zenker Brothers既是二人組合，也有作個人發展的支線。過去八年來兄弟二人憑著既Techno又展現groovy之感的音樂，分別到過柏林的Berghain和Tresor、巴塞隆拿Razzmatazz、巴黎Concrete、倫敦的Fabric和各大音樂節演出過。是次Zenker Brothers是大概宀開業以來最令人驚嘆的Techno之夜。
The brothers never forget their roots, where they came from and the essential meaning of a well-known Munich proverb: “Live and let live”, so furthermore they transcend the musical legacy of their hometown into the new millennium, shaping and forming it the Zenkerian way towards something very unique and – even more important – connective.
Zenker Brothers重視根源慕尼黑，不忘「Live and let live」，成為把家鄉之音帶到新世紀，獨特而連結人心。
