IRAKLI | Major Signals (Dial Records)
Irakli was born in Georgia when the country was still a part of the Soviet Union. He moved to Cologne before ending up in Berlin a decade ago and has been an active and interesting voice in the electronic music and club landscape of the city. First as a DJ and producer behind the I/Y and Intergalactic Research Institute For Sound labels, but also as one of the minds behind the STAUB collective. His artistic endeavors have brought him to contribute to books, exhibitions and movies. He has performed with classical orchestras and worked with artists and thinkers from all fields. He hasn’t been afraid to take a stance politically – in 2019 he collaborated with fellow Georgian producer Michailo whilst he was imprisoned. But most importantly, he loves the music, making it, sharing it, listening to it, dancing to it, and now he is presenting us with his first album on Dial.
