Rising in Turin and currently based in Munich, Stenny debuts with his first 12″ ‘Solstice Deity’ on the Zenker Brothers label Ilian Tape in 2013. Mainly inspired by the spirit of ’90s Techno and IDM, his contribution as a producer could be described as club focused but not merely functional. The dusty and stepping drum programming, often contrasting with the dense, atmospheric surrounding, is one of the peculiarities of his style, which in fact, references often to the Jungle or Hardcore era, but basically aims to evolve with no genre boundaries. As a DJ he maintains a similar, versatile and open minded approach, ranging between contemporary and classic but forward thinking club music.
Over the past 12 months we have overindulged in a vast array of consistently on-point long players from artists both new and old. As with tradition we have compiled what we believe to be the best albums of 2019.
With the release of their new compilation – A Decade Ilian Tape – featuring artists from past, present…or just stopping by (Hi, “Seelow”) – the Zenker Brothers have provided Inverted Audio with an excellent primer of the label’s catalogue.
