Simina Grigoriu returns with brand new Techno, titled ‘Bucureşti’


Following a veritable slew of hard-hitting EPs on the likes of Elevate, FORM Music, Set About and Complexed over the past twelve months. Our girl, Romanian-born producer and Kuukou Records label boss Simina Grigoriu now returns with her first huge outing of 2021. Out now, Simina’s nostalgic new single takes us back to the city where she was born, as she unveils her remarkable new underground techno cut, Bucureşti. 

Igniting the record in emphatic Simina style, the introsees the Berlin-based talent deliver an impressive combination of heady bass and crisp hi-hats alongside an onslaught of pounding kick drums. A perfect backdrop to the mesmerising arpeggiated leads that creep in from the ninety-second mark, the record reaches its peak with the introduction of a thunderous synth refrain, which sets the tone for the remainder of the release.

With the release in full swing, frenetic percussion, throbbing lower end and mind-bending acid samples continue to rain down with fierce intensity across the duration of the record, as Simina perfectly manipulates the energy until the close, to round off yet another hefty release on her iconic Kuukou Records.

Speaking about the release and her connected with the city of Bucharest, Simina commented:

“I was born in Bucharest almost 40 years ago, and although we fled the country a few years later to escape Ceausescu’s communist regime, never to live there again, my connection to this city has always been strong.

After the revolution, we spent our summers there. As an adult, I come to visit family and reconnect with my roots. As an artist, I am incredibly honoured to have played some of the greatest clubs in this wonderful ‘little Paris’. And now, as a mother of (almost) two half-Romanian girls, it’s imperative to foster the connection with my past so that my children understand a bit more about theirs.

Te iubesc, București.”

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.
