2016 marks a decade since Dario Zenker released his first 12", the Whatever EP on Balkon. Here, he returns to the Ilian Tape label he co-founded with brother Marco for a first solo missive since his 2014 turn on The Trilogy Tapes. There's much to admire about Dedication, from the starburst synths and booming, broken techno rhythms of opener "There Is Hope", to the Roman techno revivalism of "Gianluca Cazzeti", and the skittish, funk-fuelled intensity of the Dave Clarke style "For Internal Use". Arguably best of all, though, is "Spice Universal", a delicious combination of dub-flecked loop techno and the undulating, far-sighted futurism of Detroit.
