The Rebel Agency have released their first Rebel Pod in over a year. Episode 14 is from Kate Simko. Already a resident at Chicago's legendary Smart Bar, Kate will soon make a permanent move across the Altantic from her hometown of Chicago to her home-away-from-home – London, dropping her right into the European circuit. This mix shows what she can do to a dancefloor – at times deep, techy, disco tinged and acidic, it gives goosebumps on first listen.More ›
The Chicago resident chats to Beatportal about her upcoming move to London, working with Matt Tolfrey and Tevo Howard, and explains what a kabuki drop is.
Getting 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 melodic, Chicago-flavoured take on house and techno.
