Coming in hot this summer is an upcoming album release from the electronica duo from Florida, Aubergine Machine.

The producer of the dynamic duo, Ian Carey, is known for his many multi-platinum records and MTV Video Music Award.

He has toured and performed all around the globe with world-renowned artists including Basement Jaxx, Avicii, Diplo, Swedish House Mafia, Empire of the Sun, Faithless - among many others.

Carey has teamed up with singer and vocalist Shanti Ellis in collaboration to create their new experimental project, Aubergine Machine.

For those who are fans of Flume, Little Dragon, Lorde and Massive Attack - you are sure to love what Aubergine Machine has coming for listeners and fans.

The duo just recently released their track "Hostage" which has a very electronica and downtempo sound with a mix of indie-pop. Listen to a sneak peak of the track below!

"For "Hostage", we went back to the future and used our favorite 90's trip-hop and neo-soul influences to produce a fresh, deep, ultramodern song," the duo explained of their funky track.

"We really enjoyed working on this one because it felt very natural to leave a little space to make it a little bit dark."

The duo's sound is definitely something that I have become a fan of just within the first few minutes of listening.

They have a poppy feel that I love, and mixed with electronica, how could you go wrong? Be sure to watch the music video for their track "Call it Fate, Call it Karma" below, and be on the lookout for more to come from the electronica duo Aubergine Machine.
