‘Tilted’ marks the debut material to drop from Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra’s eponymous studio album, due for release on The Vinyl Factory this May. Featuring two original compositions and an epic remix from Seth Troxler, The ‘Tilted EP' provides an exciting preview of Simko’s innovative project which showcases a symbiotic blend of orchestral soundscapes and electronic music.
Aiming for the head and heart, the title track is an emotive blend of shimmering melodies and a club-friendly bassline. Seth Troxler’s rework is a stripped back epic odyssey that set to hypnotise dancefloors from London to Ibiza. The third track, ‘Waiting Games’, sends shivers down the spine with soaring live strings. This is music that supersedes genre constraints.
A rare feat, Kate composes the orchestral parts and produces the LEO songs in their entirety. She began experimenting with combining classical instruments and electronic music whilst achieving a Masters at the Royal College of Music. A classically trained pianist, the Chicago native is a musical magpie, remixing Philip Glass, collaborating with Jamie Jones, producing for Katy B, touring an audio-visual live set, and captivating audiences with her LEO shows and at clubs worldwide as an in-demand house DJ.
This trio of compelling cuts embodies the striking originality and virtuosity of Simko & her London Electronic Orchestra.
