Electronica-pop, downtempo outfit, Aubergine MACHINE, released the single “Sundown” in October via Muzik Liberated. Aubergine MACHINE is a collaboration between world renowned multi-platinum selling producer Ian Carey and new-comer to the scene Shanti Ellis. They formed the band in late 2012 after realizing their unique capability to create genre-blending electronic music with mainstream pop appeal.
Having both travelled the world in their own right while picking up many influences along the way, their mental catalog of music includes everything from pre-EDM to the uber-current sounds of post-dubstep and future garage. Carey, who is very established in the international House Music scene, sites influences ranging from Fleetwood Mac, Black Flag and DJ Premier, while Ellis sites influences such as Santigold, Vampire Weekend, and No Doubt. Carey’s production combines with Ellis’s brand of indie-pop laced vocals to build a foundation of melodies that range from youthful to emotive and haunting.
