 'A truly essential techno label: consistent, and consistently fresh. Dubby, shuffling, darkly beautiful, confidently veering between storming techno and celestial breaks. In the hands of Ilian Tape, the history of rave will always find new ways to surprise and delight.' (Resident Advisor)

On Thursday 13th April Backdrop will host the ten year anniversary tour of Ilian Tape & Jaunt. We welcome Ilian Tape’s founders, The Zenker Brothers, alongside Stenny’s live show. This label has fast become one of the most dyanmic & trusted sources of exceptional techno. Berghain takeover’s, world tours and consistently lauded releases have rightly earned them the respect of stalwarts of the scene and dancers alike. This will be their Newcastle debut.

We also are very proud to have Blackhall & Bookless, the resident’s and co-founders at Jaunt & Jaunt Records, play for Backdrop at this unique showdown. ‘Some birds feathers are too bright to be caged’, and these two local lads have flown the North-East nest and dove into Space Ibiza closing party slots, Zoo Project Ibiza residencies, Gottwood Festival takeover’s and scintillating vinyl releases. Such international DJ acclaim, when fused with ten years of winning the hearts and minds of ur region, make’s for a powerful combination. This party unites friends old, new and soon to be in the glorious grasp of this music and culture that binds us. With an expertly curated podcast series, an inspired party tenure with Derrick May and DVS1 to name but a few, Jaunt also celebrate a decade in the game this year.

They too, make Backdrop the start of their celebratory tour. We are proud to have our own resident’s, Dr. Joseph & Simon, play before them.
