Kate Simko – The Echo (Dub Mix)
Kate Simko is back on Get Physical Music with a new single that comes in two different but equally brilliant versions.
Chicago born, London based Simko is right at the cutting edge of the scene. Her interactive audio-visual live sets have taken her to high class events around the world, while her fresh take on house and techno has given rise to albums and EPs on Last Night on Earth, No.19 Music and Play It Say It. Melodic, driving, jacking and funky, Kate’s distinctive sound comes with plenty of serious sound design.
The String Mix of ‘Echo’ is a triumphant wedge of big, bouncy techno that exudes warmth. The weighty drums carry you away while the superb strings that light up the skies above are filled with plenty of high tech and futuristic soul straight from classic Detroit.
On to the Dub Mix and things are stripped back just a little, so that the rhythm section has even more impact, but plenty of emotional drama and musical colour still comes from those fantastic synths and strings up top.
Kate Simko shows her class once again here.
