Enjoy Bucuresti with the Legendary Simina


Techno lovers, get ready for an epic track! If you’re a techno fan, you’ll love this one! Romanian-born producer and Kuukou Records label boss Simina Grigoriu now returns with her first huge outing of 2021. The track is 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. This track follows a veritable slew of hard-hitting EPs on the likes of Elevate, FORM Music, Set About, and Complexed over the past twelve months.


This track truly ignites the record in emphatic Simina style. For instance, the intro sees the Berlin-based talent deliver an impressive combination of heady bass. This is in addition to the crisp hi-hats alongside an onslaught of pounding kick drums. Whew! This all is a perfect backdrop to the mesmerizing arpeggiated leads that creep in from the ninety-second mark. You’ll be hypnotized instantly. Finally, the record reaches its peak with the introduction of a thunderous synth refrain. This 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 a result, 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 connection 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.”
