Kate Simko Dims the House Lights with "Lights Out"

Before hearing this album I did not know of DJ producer Kate Simko or that this, her solo debut album called Lights Out, was highly anticipated. Now that I know I realize what that mysterious anticipatory feeling was that had me on the edge of my seat waiting for this album. It is phenomenal, and if I was a critic it would get a 9+ on my 9 point scale.She grew up in the city that gave us house, and has expanded into virtually every electronic and dance form, with great success. As of today I start anticipating the follow-up release.

Cool interview with Kate at Burlington Project HERE.

In the interview she says "Flight into BA" is one of her favorites on the album. She likes to winter in Buenos Aires.
