Kate Simko (No. 19, Get Physical, Leftroom)

Agent: Ben

“Chicago changed the dance world once, already, and will again if native daughter Kate Simko has anything to do with it. Born and raised in the city that house built, Kate’s blend of old-school musicality and futuristic beats takes the heritage of house and pushes it towards a shining future.”

–Ibiza Voice

Getting her start stateside alongside Matthew Dear, Ryan Elliott, and the Spectral Sound crew, Kate Simko has consistently established a unique and solid voice in electronic music.  A diverse musician, Kate has carved an international career as an eclectic musician, fielding projects ranging from remixing Philip Glass, to composing film scores, to rocking jackin’ DJ sets, and producing her melodic, Chicago-flavoured take on house and techno.   

Kate released her first full-length album in 2002 with Chilean Andres Bucci, and has since released various releases on top labels such as Supplement Facts, Get Physical, Leftroom, and No. 19.  Up next for Kate are collaborations with Jamie Jones and Hot Since 82, the release of full-length album with Tevo Howard (as PolyRhythmic) and the launch of her new label, Black Book Recordings.
