A fixture of the Berlin electronic scene, Japanese producer and vinyl-only DJ Hito joins forces with fellow Japanese and Berlin-based producer duo SUDO for their Kobe EP, featuring Minus label mate Carlos Ruetz and label chief Simina Grigoriu on remix duties.

Kobe is a fierce slice of slamming techno, swiftly unfolding its brooding intro into a full on dancefloor heater. Simina Grigoriu puts her own mark on the track, adding a new layer of suspense decked in lofty pads and spiralling synths converging into highly attention-grabbing crescendo.

Meanwhile, Carlo Ruetz’s remix sits on the playful side, filled with arpeggiated sequences and other sonic boomerangs that captivate and delight at the same time.

“If you support any of these on an upcoming stream please do let us know so we can highlight on socials of the label and artist"

She’s a DJ, producer, a new mommy and now starting her own label: We’re talking about Simina Grigoriu. With a team full of women behind her, from manager to agent through to PR manager, Simina has been working for some time at full speed on a label along with a collection of new tracks.

On May 13, 2016 we raise the curtain on her brand new EP and mark the start of her new series, appropriately named, TECHNO MONKEY. The name is likely not to be entirely unkown to loyal fans! We’re all the more pleased to be able to announce that “Techno Monkey No. 1” will be the first release on Simina’s new label, KUUKOU RECORDS. Each new EP release promises fresh tracks from Simina, as well as a premier remix developed in collaboration with other DJs.

Following the release of her debut album "Exit City” in 2012, Simina is now issuing another big bang with her Techno Monkey series. Concentrated techno power on a label of a special kind. Kuukou Records is a platform for exciting releases, monthly podcasts and remixes and above all, about community. The talented artists in the techno realm are paying attention.

For Simina Grigoriu it’s another milestone in her career, an innovative concept giving free flow to many ideas and one which she’s 100% behind. Together with her team, Simina is constantly working on new projects and is currently planning a private party with top-class lineup.

Her vision is making waves – so we’re all the more pleased that we were able to engage the popular Boiler Room for a slot. In conjunction with four other DJs, this summer, Simina will play a live performance in Berlin and introduce the label. All signs point to?

That’s right – TECHNO.
