Riding high off the back of one of her most prolific years in the studio to date, internationally celebrated techno sensation Simina Grigoriu steamrollers into 2022 with continued vigor, as she unveils her next huge extended player, “Rooftop Ballerina” on her Pirouette EP.
Set for worldwide release on Friday, January 21 via her beloved Kuukou Records imprint, Simina’s emphatic two-part “Rooftop Ballerina” / Pirouette EP is another remarkable showcase in immersive, avant-garde techno from an artist who has carved out a reputation over the past few years as one of the most industrious and exciting talents on the European techno circuit.
Commencing the double-sided cut with the absorbing opener “Rooftop Ballerina”, Simina makes her intentions known from the outset, conjuring an uncompromising blend of driving kicks, techy synths and exquisitely layered drum samples to masterful effect. A hard-hitting production and arguably the most intricate rendition on the EP, Simina’s impressive tenacity shines through in spades with this latest offering, as she adds to her flourishing career discography with yet another huge dancefloor weapon.
On the flip, the Kuukou label boss demonstrates her distinctive production versatility with the equally tough finale, “Pirouette”. Building a mesmerizing array of distorted undulating basslines and glitchy, industrial samples with trademark ease, Simina Grigoriu pulls out all the stops for her latest techno roller, to close out the EP in resounding fashion.
