Georgian DJ and producer Vulkanski returns to BITE with his first full-length album ‘Skeptical Answers’. Serving as a longtime resident at Tbilisi club KHIDI, he’s also known as one of the key figures pioneering the local electronic music scene. Real name Achi Tabukashvili stands for rich, vibrant techno and grinding, metallic soundscapes that are elegantly arranged through his high fidelity productions and singular DJ sets.
Vulkanski’s Skeptical Answers traverses, over its 10 tracks, the infinite ranges between tectonic club techno, UK-inspired IDM and broken beats, while reaching to contemporary weightless and electro territories. The producer describes and questions a period of a deeper esoteric search through the labyrinth of contemporary viewpoints on instrumental sonics and its unexpected answers.
Vulkanksi is known as one half of duo Greenbeam & Leon, who began DJing and performing throughout Georgia in 2002. They notably appeared on Boiler Room in response to the police raids at Bassiani and Cafe Gallery 5 years ago. With Vulkanski’s debut BITE EP Science Gardens in 2018, he illustrated his detailed vision of his own dense soundscape productions culminating in a memorable Berghain debut for label cofounder Phase Fatale’s Ostgut Ton album release party in 2020. Now, Skeptical Answers examines a wider spectrum of sonic possibilities, aimed towards the most daring of dancefloors existing between the liminal bounds of club music and its deconstructions. A dissection of his focused elements in heavy electronics.
The release is available from June 28th – listen to a preview from the album below!
