Relative newcomers Audio Aubergine have started 2006 with a bang. 5 new releases of IDM/electroid goodness that ranges from "lets get the get dancefloor booties a sweatin" to "only my software understands me" have established these eggplant obsessed cats as a label to watch. Come for the beats, stay for the recipes.

Personal favorites so far are "Erotos"by Chas Mollet, "Big Face Funny Language" by Greg Scrase and "Fantadirty" by Ether. Let the purple party begin!

I know that you just started the label up recently, right?

Friday 20/01/2006 about 23:30.

Congrats on getting it started, how has the experience been so far?
Fun, thanks.

Where is the label based out of?
A tiny 1 bedroom flat in Londons east end.

How many artists are currently in the label? 5

Have any of the artists on the label released music commercially?

Yes, 3 have. Check the site for details.

How many releases have you put out to date? 5

Is there a style of music that you feel best sums of the Aubergine sound?


If its been made with machines and has soul then its definitely electronic eggplant style.



What’s the deal with the Aubergine theme? You seem very down with eggplants. They can be a bit bitter…


Make sure you slice up the delicious fruit before cooking and arrange evenly on a plate, sprinkle a healthy amount of salt gently over the pieces and leave to rest for about half an hour. The salt will slowly draw out the water which gives the eggplant a bitter taste.
My two favourite things in this world are electronic music and aubergines. Maybe I need to get out and about more and try some different food stuffs.

Do you have any contact with people who are running other net labels? Do you feel like you are part of a community?

Well its early days, looking at this site i've only just realized how many exist. I agree with Subjex, quality will prevail and hopefully the good netlabels will become renowned and support each other. Electrotoxic, Bedroom Research and Micromusic all get the aubergine thumbs up.

In your opinion, what is the most exciting thing happening in music right now?

Free quality Netlabels of course!

What’s on the horizon for Aubergine?


We've got a video section, remix section and other goodies all in production. We're also really excited about our next five releases, there's a couple of people involved some of you might have heard of before. Hold tight!

Ok, time to give shouts out to your people.


Biggups All Aubergine Crew!
Special thanks to my lady, Bene, for designing and creating the beautiful graphics for the site.

Word, much respect.

Municiple's Favorite Aubergine Recipe:

(recipe from www.chinesefood-recipes.com)



Famous Szechuan dish, it's hot and spicy. Although it is called "fish flavored", it actually doesn't contain any fish or fish flavorings. It is named so because it is said that its combination and the technique of cooking can make it has the flavor of fish. Interesting isn't?
