Philip Glass – Houston Skyline (Kate Simko Remix) / London Electronic Orchestra

I was planning to focus on less vocal-heavy electronic sounds for a while already, so I’m glad to have come across this little beauty of a remix by Kate Simko. It puts a slightly different electronic spin on the original by Philip Glass while keeping the faintly oppressive¬† but melodic atmospheric elements.

Kate Simko started working as a producer and composer in Chicago around the change of the millenium, which also explains her strong influences from Chicago House. Besides this and Detroit Techno classical music and jazz are by far the genres with the greatest impact  impact on her mostly warm and soulful electronic sound. Her own background in music theory and piano also influenced the currently London-based artists latest project: the London Electronic Orchestra, where she merges live orchestra and electronic sounds to create something entirely new and incredibly wonderful, as can be seen below.


Year: 2014

Genre: Electronica / Classical
