Simina Grigoriu is a woman on a mission. Having flexed her A&R muscles on a string of huge releases from the likes of Drumcomplex, Filterheadz, Anna Reusch, Juheun and [ Wex 10 ] already this year, the Berlin-based DJ, producer and Kuukou Records label boss now returns to her much loved imprint to deliver her latest solo offering.
Following a recent single release on OFF Recordings with Auryn in September, and an exquisite remix for Tom Wax & Dr. Motte’s Plur back in August, Simina now continues her prolific run of studio form with the stunning new package, Sector Unu.
Kick-starting the two-part player with the dynamic title track Sector Unu, Simina goes all-in from the very first kick drum, delivering an powerful peak-time cut, laden with pounding bass, ravey samples and expertly manipulated synth refrains throughout its thunderous, five-and-a-half minute duration.
Maintaining an acute level of intensity across the package, the flip sees Simina enlist none other than German techno maven and recent Mixmag Caribbean cover star Klaudia Gawlas to provide her own unique interpretation of the emphatic title track. Debuting on Kuukou armed with an impressive catalogue of career releases on the likes of MOOD, SCI+TEC, FORM Music and KD RAW (to name a few), Klaudia combines unrelenting drum patterns with piercing synth leads to masterful effect as she explores a starker – yet equally effective – timbre to Simina’s original, to close out the EP with remarkable style.
