Simina Grigoriu has had another incredibly successful start to the year.

Following the release of her massive Rooftop Ballerina / Pirouette EP in January and a pair of remixes for Torsten Kanzler and Dok&Martin, the Berlin-based DJ, producer, label head released her first NFT collection on CryptoDJs and embarked on her most extensive tour of North America to date in the first quarter of 2022.

Simina now announces an impending return to her beloved Kuukou Records with the majestic new track 1981, as she hopes to continue her flourishing run of form into the New Year. 1981 is a heartfelt tribute to Simina’s mother, who protected her and her brother through some terribly difficult years growing up in a repressed Romania in the early 1980s. It was released as a follow-up to her nostalgic 2021 hit tune Bucuresti.

In January 2021 I bought out ‘Bucuresti’ in dedication to both the city in which I was born, and to the exceptional woman who gave me life. The cover photo was taken by my mother when I was just three years old, shortly before we fled the oppressing and dire situation in Romania under Ceausescu’s regime at the time. My Mama was born in January so it felt seemingly perfect to release this track for her birthday. She’s done EVERYTHING for me (and for my brother) and in my feeble still-15-year-old-mind, this is a sliver of what I can do to show her how much she means to me. ‘1981’ is my follow-up to ‘Bucuresti’. It’s the year I was born and though I don’t remember anything from those primitive years, that frequency still lives in my lifeblood. I can feel it. I hope you like this one, Mami.
