Bruce Tantum chats to the Zenker Brothers about their XLR8R Podcast.

We here at XLR8R love no-nonsense names, and Munich, Germany’s Zenker Brothers fit the bill on that count—Dario and Marco are indeed brothers, and Zenker is their real given surname. (None of that Wighnomy Brothers or Aphex Twin fake-sibling business for these guys.) We also love no-nonsense (and hot) music, and that’s just what the brothers, who run the rather magnificent Ilian Tape label, specialize in: sometimes tough, often atmospheric and always compelling techno, leavened with more than enough rubbery playfulness, dubbed-out weirdness and plain old funk to keep things extremely interesting.
