Aubergine MACHINE

Hostage (Digital Single)

Review by Gary Hill

This single is from a duo of Ian Carey and Shanti Ellis. The mix of sounds here is quite intriguing.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2014  Volume 3 at

Track by Track Review

What a great tune this is. It’s got a bit of a soulful vibe to it. The energy moves between modern pop music and a dance music vibe.


(Editor's Note - Music Street Journal is set up for the allocation of albums, not singles - particularly not one-song singles. So, in the instances, like this one, where we've covered single song releases, we've had to make some adaptations for formatting. In the case of this one, just imagine both track review and overall review reading as one set of copy. )
