Manfredas. The name packs a hefty punch meets France's most wanted radio host and selector, Ivan Smagghe!
After years spent amassing knowledge as a radio DJ, Manfredas took his talents to the club, where he’s been convincing the unconvinced ever since.
This man has a serious gift for throwing his every physical move hammering home the strength of his musical convictions. From the unique way he palms the jog wheel, to the ardent torque of his dancing, music feels a little more impactful in his midst.
Red Axes inducted him as the only non-Israeli in the Garzen crew, resonating with his uncanny sense of the bizarre and the beautiful.
Manfredas has been instrumental in creating a culture that has led some mega-respected DJs to call it their favourite club in the world. The space feels like a feedback loop of love, dramatic intensity, and open-minded passion that draws everyone deeper into the music.
France's most wanted radio host and selector, Ivan Smagghe stands at the crossroads between glamorous Parisian hype and musical integrity.
Along with the likes of occasional partner-in-crime Andrew Weatherall, Ivan has the ability to play music like a raw conduit between his famously obscure records and the dancefloor's strobe-soaked bodies, injecting Floyd with surreal sounds all night.
