Composer Kate Simko, along with her all-female London-based string ensemble London Electronic Orchestra, release their highly anticipated album. Kate Simko has composed tracks that subtly blend her training as a classical pianist with her passion for electronic music. The result is an inimitable mix of sonorous strings and instruments melting with synthesizers and loose grooved beats, taking classical music to an innovative level.
Musical worlds collide, with a rework of Schubert, Egyptian and Eastern melodies, rainforest samples, Philip Glass-inspired minimalism and classic 808 electronic drums.
The album includes reworks of The xx and Parra For Cuva, as well as collaborations with prominent UK house DJ Jamie Jones and pop singer Katy B.
