Kate SimkoGetting her start stateside alongside Matthew Dear, Ryan Elliott, and the Spectral Sound crew, Kate Simko has quietly, yet consistently, established herself as one of dance music’s rising stars. A diverse musician, Kate’s projects range from remixing Philip Glass, to composing film scores, to rocking jackin’ DJ sets, and producing her own melodic, Chicago-flavoured take on house and techno.

Kate stepped in to the spotlight in 2011, releasing her first full-length album ‘Lights Out’ on Berlin’s lauded Hello?Repeat label. To accompany the album release, Kate unveiled a custom audio-visual live set programmed by video guru Jeffrey Weeter. The cutting edge set – featuring original HD video scenes from around the world, modulating to the rhythms of the dance floor – was debuted at Rex Club in Paris, then performed at top spots around the globe.

“Last summer I moved from Chicago to London, and this EP followed me through the madness!” Kate Simko tells us about how her sensual Get Physical debut, ‘Lost In London EP’ came to be. “I started the songs in Chicago last spring, and was feeling full of ideas and urgency to get them recorded. I guess I was thinking that somehow things might be forgotten after all of the hustle of moving …”

Kate has seen her previous releases span catalogues from Leftroom to Scissor & Thread. She has a solid following of vinyl loving fans – nearly all of her releases selling out in short notice. We expect ‘Lost In London’ to be no different.

“Then it was time to ship my studio by boat to the UK. It took about 6-8 weeks to arrive, and in that time I did a lot of exploring (aka getting lost) in the city of London.” By the time the studio arrived, I’d absorbed the sounds of the city and I think they came through in the music, especially in ‘Lost In London’.”

“‘Closer feat. Jem Cooke’ is the follow up song with Jem Cooke after our collaboration from last year, ‘Go On Then’ (Leftroom). We recorded the vocals at Royal College of Music; I think the musical vibe of the place put her at ease that day. She’s an amazing person and her voice is incredible. So happy to have linked up with her.” Kate’s groove and rhythm heavy sound shines throughout the release – from the chords of ‘Closer feat. Jem Cooke’ to the bass pump of ‘Out Of Order’. We’re super happy to have her on board, and looking forward to hearing more from her in the near future!
