Nicko Vee returns today at 1pm est. for a new show Romptunes. Today’s special guest is Simina Grigoriu.
Like any good mix that tells a story, Simina Grigoriu does more than just impress techno music through her DJ sets, she herself is a mixture of diverse cultural and musical influences. Born in Romania, raised in Toronto and since then arriving to Berlin, she describes a synthesis of the violin and keyboard lessons she had in her childhood, the discovery of her parent’s vinyl treasures and the hip-hop freestyling in her student days.
Paired with her love of techno, which she discovered somewhat later in the clubs in Toronto, as well as the musical influences of Jeff Mills, Josh Wink and Juan Atkins, to name a few, the diverse artiste also developed a talent for entertaining her audience and surprising them over and over again.
At the moment, Simina is starting work on her first album, all the while keeping busy with her regular bookings. Simina has released music on Berlin label Sonat Records, as well as with Italian labels Intelectro Vibe and Frequenza Records. In production mode, she is currently looking forward to projects with labels such as Bohemian Yacht Club, Real Music Records and Phase Insane Records.
Alongside her production and regular touring schedule, Simina will be performing on the Goldfingers Tour in concert halls throughout Germany, and later this year, she is once again lined up as opening act for the PK Tour with Paul Kalkbrenner. Simina is definitely one of techno’s burgeoning talents to watch. Her performance and hardwork are quickly building credibility and getting her much deserved attention in these early years of her career. We definitely have not heard the last of her! But as Frank Zappa would say, “Talking about music is like dancing about architecture.” Simina Grigoriu is an experience not to be missed!
