Happy Human With Sad Eyes
Days Of Change
Irakli’s new album is due to come out September 2023 on Live at Robert Johnson. Mechanical Moon is a retrofuturistic adventure of beautiful compositions and pulsating rhythms which are weaved together over the span of eight tracks.
We are immersed into evocative atmospheres, full of intricate textures. This is techno where you close your eyes and board an ocean liner that slowly rises and floats towards the moon.
Happy human with sad eyes roamed the neon-lit streets of the artificial island. This section of the metropolis had been designed as a necessity more than any other amenities. It had been allocated a budget surpassing the one for waste management in a city housing over a billion inhabitants.
Society had managed to eradicate love, yet it still grappled with untamed primal instincts such as dancing, sex, or violence. The island provided a discreet haven, away from the prying eyes of telescreens that silently stared into all souls. Similar to Las Vegas centuries ago, it was a safe space where anything was fair game.
Once there, night time lasted all day. Everything retained an analog essence. Music emanated from vintage record players. Amidst the laughter and tears, the artificial glow of the mechanical moon had become the last reminder
of life outside.
A life so repetitive that he had been consumed by the desire to transform into a machine or a human satellite. Yet, breaking the cycle in such a manner remained impossible. And so, he wandered for hours on the island, among the weary faces.
Happy as one could be.
From Georgia to Berlin, Irakli embarked on an artistic journey that encompassed ethereal soundscapes and vibrant club experiences. With notable contributions to books, performances, and the creation of the Intergalactic Research Institute For Sound and I/Y labels, he has forged a career that defies easy description. Always pushing boundaries, he played a crucial role in shaping the STAUB collective. More recently, he released his debut album „Major Signals“ on Dial Records in 2021. All in all, Irakli has always been true to his underground ethos and has become a fascinating multidisciplinary artist with no limitations. Mechanical Moon highlights again his talent as a producer and gives us another chance to glimpse into his world. The record will come out on Live at Robert Johnson in September 2023.
Robert Johnson does not really need an introduction. The beloved Offenbach club opened in 1999 and has been the home of Perlon and Frankfurt’s scene ever since. Its label arm Live at Robert Johnson has released music from residents such as Roman Flügel, Mano Le Tough, or Massimiliano Pagliara in the past years.
