Simina Grigoriu lands on Tronic with ‘Mafia Maria’

Share

Romanian-born, Toronto-bred Simina Grigoriu has been steadily racking up accolades during her decade-long career. Starting off as a DJ, she’s made the transition as a producer and kicked off 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.

Garnering on the exposure of Toronto’s clubs were growing up, Jeff Mills, Josh Wink and Juan Atkins struck a chord. Simina’s style grew and developed constantly into the straightforward and uplifting techno she fronts today.

‘Rockets // Launch 08’ is a new compilation from Christian Smith‘s Tronic label. It features 10 new and exclusive cuts from the likes of Loco & Jam, Radu Dracul, The Southern, Kimono and Simina Grigoriu.

We premiere her ‘Mafia Maria’ today over on NUDE. Check it out below and grab it here.

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.
