Native Chicagoans, Tevo and Kate grew up on house music, and their collaboration pays homage to their home city while exploring new ideas outside the limitations of genre boxes. The forthcoming album, ‘PolyRhythmic’, is a masterfully crafted production from two of the current days most dedicated purveyors of Chicago house music.
Both Kate and Tevo’s heritage shines brightly through ‘Bring it’. Their equally passionate devotions to music started at young ages. Tevo, a bassist who started mixing records in the late eighties, coupled with Kate’s love of piano and house music, makes this a completely natural pairing. ‘Bring it’ foreshadows the essence of ‘PolyRhythmic’, an album that fuses modern inspirations with the classic sounds of house music.
The vocal version of ‘Bring It’ was re-crafted last summer in New York at Butcha Sound Studios with vocalist Amunet Shah. Also enamored by house music, Shah created raw and authentic NYC-style vocals. Kate and Tevo’s new school American sound shines through on this standout production from the album, fusing together elements from Detroit, New York and Chicago house music. The addition of Tevo Howard’s Roland-303 baselines perfectly capture and elevate the classic sound of Chicago. A menacing yet melodic sound that highlights the ‘PolyRhythmic’ project perfectly, A classic sound with a contemporary twist.
