Alice Ivy shares her essential pre-show mix tape
Over the past few years, Melbourne producer ALICE IVY has solidified herself as a staple in the Australian electronic music community.Her sound is a testament to more than just her creative ear, but also her respect for the collaborative process. She’s collaborated with some of the most diverse and exciting musicians in the game, including E^ST, Charlie Thread, Flint Eastwood, Bertie Blackman, Georgia van Etten and now, Ecca Vandal.
‘In My Mind’ is a track that Ivy calls her “favourite song she’s ever written”. Mashing up her collage-style of production with lush, rolling bouts of pscyhedelia and Ecca Vandal‘s highly distinctive vocal, the track emerges a Superorganism-esque, impactful number.
The pair also delivered a one-shot clip to accompany the track, giving us a little sneak-peek into the psychedelic, hyper-colour world Ivy and Vandal have built together. It also offers up a powerful insight into the duo’s friendship, the pair having a damn good time frolicking in this technicolour dream.
To celebrate the work’s release, Ivy delivered a guest mix for our show on FBi Radio last weekend. The mix, dubbed ‘The Essential Pre-Party Mix Tape’ features every track you’ll ever need to get this damn party started. We’re talking Bill Withers, Destiny’s Child, Luke Million and to round it all out, Riton‘s take on her track ‘Close To You’.
