Dario Zenker Mix

Dario Zenker is a native of Munich. He grew up listening to his stepfather’s Beatles records, and making their first steps into the club of his aunt, the legendary Ultraschall, where great Djs like Acid Maria or The Hacker were playing. At 18 he got behind the wheel of the booth, and was learning from these experienced teachers. Meanwhile he was creating his own music until he published his first vinyl in 2006 by the Spanish label Esperanza. His style is a very organic deep house, influenced by techno. That same year, he also released two separate eps on Balkon, Num and Telegraph. You can’t start better.

In this first year of success, great producers as Jorge Savoretti collaborate with ​​him, and prestigious labels interested in their productions and ask an ep. Vakant is one of them, and also which only print vinyl, as Lomidhigh, where released the Hermosa ep. When the people of Ultraschall get separated, created the label and club that is now known as Harry Klein and Dario is told to stick with them. For this label in 2010 he makes a couple of jobs with his brother, Marco Zenker, with who then later he forms their own label, Ilian Tape, which today is giving much to talk about.
