Simina Grigoriu is back with a new killer ‘Mission District’ EP

Share

Following up her much-loved OFF Recordings debut from last year, Simina Grigoriu is back with a new killer ‘Mission District’ EP.

Romanian-born, Toronto-bred Simina Grigoriu has been steadily racking up accolades during her decade-long career. Starting off as a DJ, she quickly made the transition as a producer and kicked off her own label Kuukou, a home for techno forward productions, where she calls all the shots. In this time she’s also transplanted to Berlin, a place she now calls home and the major source of her creative inspiration, a source as diverse as her influences. 

Simina’s musical roots stem deep in her childhood when she studied classical violin and keyboard. Coupled with her parents’ musical legacy and her passion for Hip Hop freestyling as a teen, it encapsulates the foundation of her style, an avenue she continues to explore to this day. 

An active globetrotter, Simina’s constantly touring, having wowed crowds at festivals and venues all over the world so it’s no surprise the Techno chief named her label ‘Kuukou’ (Japanese for airport). Make sure you check out Kuukou Radio Show on Data Transmission Radio on the last Saturday of the Month at 10pm.

Now to the EP, “Mission District“ combines a rolling big room groove with driving synths and a washed-out vocal. A sure dancefloor-destroyer for the lucky ones of us that make it to a festival this year.

Our premiere “Incinerate“ offers similar ingredients but in a more melodic way, creating an epic and trippy atmosphere. You can listen to ‘Incinerate’ on our NUDE Techno channels now, check it out here and grab it on Beatport.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
