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. Now he is presenting us with his first album on Dial.

Major Signals is the debut album and at most a substantial solo effort since arriving on the scene in 2013. It’s an unpredictable but coherent long player that speaks to all corners of his aesthetic, encompassing minimal techno traits and wistfully wandering asides familiar to Dial, but done in a looser way than one might have been lead to expect from the long-running label. From Sun Electric-esque ambient coordinates of ‘Forever, to lissom slow acid reminding of Tin Man in ‘Blessing From The Future’, thru to chiming techno landing between Mills and Efdemin on ‘Major Signals’, ‘This Way’ and ‘Surface’ they prove equally adept at multiple modes, but it’s the album comes into it own thru its shapeshifting narrative via odder globules of techno that and starry-eyed ambient that make it more than just a collection of club cuts.
