Following up the project’s first remix by Seth Troxler and Phil Moffa (LSOS), this newest remix installment features Fort Romeau and two new house mixes from Kate Simko herself.
Kate’s ‘Waiting Games’ Club Mix features New York-based vocalist Amunet Shah, who first collaborated with Kate and Tevo Howard on their single ‘Bring It’ last year on Sasha’s Last Night on Earth imprint. When Amunet sang over the duo’s live set in Room 1 of fabric, she blew the roof off with her sultry live vocals and 80’s style voguing. Amunet’s raw New York style was the ideal fit to move the song from the concert hall to the underground club scene. Kate’s reworks play around with the up-right bass hook, emotive harp, and strings teasers from the original, whilst tight drum programming and an irresistible groove keep this firmly in DC-10 terrace territory.
Fort Romeau’s remix is a deep, dark, and beautiful melodic affair. Off the back of standout releases on Running Back, Spectral Sound, and Permanent Vacation, Fort delivers another cut of impeccable taste. His reworking of the original track is ex-quisite exercise in tension and release, featuring the original’s baritone sax and flute, further demonstrating his unparalleled talent as an electronic producer of the highest caliber.
For over a decade now, Kate Simko has been one of dance music’s standout artists. Her unique flavour of forward-thinking house music was welcomed onto the iconic Spectral Sound label, and since then her catalogue has grown to include releases on Get Physical, Hello?Repeat, Leftroom, No.19, recent collaborations with Jamie Jones and Katy B, and an album on Sasha’s Last Night On Earth imprint. An inimi-table blend of lush strings weaving in-and-out of synths and loose grooved beats, Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra’s first single with Jamie Jones, ’One Time Game ft. Jem Cooke’ was released last summer on Emerald City, and followed up in 2016 by two EP’s and their debut self-titled album on The Vinyl Factory.
Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra have created a buzz with their genre-bending live sets at iTunes Festival, Boiler Room, Latitude Festival, HEART Ibiza, and Bestival, The group will be making their U.S. debut at Le Poisson Rouge on July 14 in New York.
