Clinic ja Kuukou järjestävät toisen yhteisen tapahtuman, tällä kertaa maaliskuun ensimmäisenä perjantaina uudella ST Anna’s klubilla. Kuukou Recordsin vetäjä Simina Grigoriu villitsi hypnoottisilla teknoseteillä viime heinäkuussa niin Clinic Summer Cruisella kuin jatkoilla UGGLAssa, joten päätimme jatkaa hyvin alkanutta yhteistyötä tällä kertaa talven pakkasissa.
Siminan lisäksi dekkien takaa löytyvät Clinicin Joonas L ja Jekaterina, vierailevina tähtinä mukana ovat Joikun Concha sekä Local Deepin Jeku.
Rewind<<Born in Romania and raised in Toronto, Simina Grigoriu has called Berlin home for several years. The pearl on the river Spree has been the creative epicenter for Simina’s musical expression and has sharpened her natural feeling for beats and sounds. Each of Simina’ssets tells a new story and makesher cultural roots known.
While taking classical violin and keyboard lessons in her early childhood, Simina’senthusiasm for music grew steadily. From the vinyl treasures of her parents and the Hip-Hop freestyle of her student days, Simina’s sound gradually took on a style all its own, which she has exploredand remained faithful to till this day.
Her musical development would later take on a whole new twist in the clubs of Toronto. The influence of Jeff Mills, Adam Beyer, Josh Wink, and Juan Atkins, to name a few, kindled Simina’s love for techno music – a genre whose versatility captured her imagination, and which she would not be able to pull herself away from.
Play > A few years ago Simina appeared as a bright new star in the techno sky and released her first tracks with various labels. Her release with the Berlin label Sonat Records was followed by releases with Phase Insane Records in Spain, Intelectro Vibe in Italy, Urban Sound and Frequenza Records. With the first huge smash in her career, Simina released her chart storming debut album EXIT CITY with Susumu Records.
Fast Forward >> After almost exactly twelve months SiminaGrigoriu has resumed her station behind the turntables. Creative pause? Wrong! Simina has become the mother to a baby daughter, and, as befits a full-blooded artist,has not let the time elapse without music.
With the fresh impulses of motherhood, the artistfine-tuned her new tracksduring her pregnancy, which have also just beenliftedlike a baby from the baptism. In playful tracks full of positive vibes and a solid dose of techno, Simina returns on November 16, 2015 with her first comeback release with Form Music.
It is impressive to see with what energy and vitality SiminaGrigoriu masters the balancing act between family and music. She remains true to her unique sound and is now, above all: a full-time mom with the vision to be leddeeperinto her music by an ever-present instinct for play.
We look forward to more from an artist who we can’t imagine the techno scene without, and for a comeback that has more than earned the moniker ‘playful’.
