Premiere: IVAN – Manipulate Me

For their inaugural release, Sydney-based label Best Effort bring together a selection of tracks from close friends. Already a regular fixture on the Skylab airwaves in Melbourne, the label is lovingly curated by DJ Earl Grey, with this first release, Number One, showcasing tracks from Cold Emotion, Metric System and more.

Our pick, ‘Manipulate Me’ is the brainchild of Ivy Barkakati and Phran aka IVAN. Ivy’s spoken vocals are reinforced by frigid machine-funk, fusing icy 80s coldwave influences and contemporary house music.

Number One is out soon – buy from Juno and Phonica.
