Following her critically-acclaimed single ‘False Prophets’ on OFF Recordings at the start of September, as well as a mammoth remix of Sisko Electrofanatik and Dyno’s ‘Sequence X’, one of the European techno circuit’s most cherished contributors - Simina Grigoriu - returns to her own esteemed Kuukou Records with her brand-new hit ‘Raw Sugar’.
Out now across all digital platforms, ‘Raw Sugar’ is another impeccable masterclass in trippy, industrial techno from an artist whose growth and creativity are ever-flourishing. Delivering on tight, impactful beats, Simina employs a flurry of ambiguous, twinkling synth elements that give this cut a kaleidoscopic effect. Heavily influenced by her local scene in Berlin, Simina’s output is founded on raw, meditative percussion and euphoric synth-work; conducive to the darkened, intimate club scene that the city is so famous for.
Romanian-born, Toronto bred Simina Grigoriu has been steadily racking up accolades during her almost fifteen year-long career and now stands as one of techno’s most beloved producers. With an impressive back-catalogue of releases across the scene’s most influential labels as well as a stacked resume of stand-out performances, Grigoriu is primed to enter into the genre’s upper echelons.
Launched in 2016, Kuukou Records has served as an invaluable platform for the underground community, sharing the authentic perspectives of both established and up-and-coming artists alike. With countless offerings scattered within the imprint’s storied discography, Simina’s Kuukou opuses are fully reflective of the label’s forward-thinking ethos and allow her to present music with unbounded creativity.
