Kate Simko is a Chicago-based music-maker. A classically trained pianist at the University level, Kate switched gears in her 20's to make the music she loves most: house and techno. Reflecting her diverse musical background, Kate's productions possess a unique harmonic, structural and spatial depth.
Kate's first release was a relaxed listening record produced in Chile with Andres Bucci. This album, Detalles "Shapes of Summer," was released on Traum in 2003, which led to various performances in South America, including the 2004 Mutek Chile festival. Kate's subsequent projects include a remix for Philip Glass, solo material on Kupei Musika and a new Detalles 12" and full-length on Kupei as well. Kate is excited about her musical future, which will include solo projects on Chocolate Industries, Kupei and others as well as more work scoring music for commercials and films.
Kate has received props in The Wire, Art Papers, Grooves Magazine, URB, de:Bug, the L.A. Times and XLR8R and has performed beside artists such as Monolake, Richie Hawtin, Four Tet, Michael Mayer, Reinhardt Voight, Ellen Allien, RRR, Steve Barnes, Magda, John Tejada, Broker/Dealer, Swayzak and Ulrich Schnauss.
