Simina Grigoriu is a Romanian-born DJ and music producer from Toronto. Since her move to Berlin in 2008, Simina has been playing in clubs and festivals, big and small, as well as building on her production skills. At first glance, she may not be the typical techno DJ you’d expect to stroll on stage at an East German open-air festival. But don’t let her furry boots and side ponytail fool you. Her DJ sets are intensely beat-driven yet have a melodic flow that move entire dance floors. Critical response to Simina's performances have been unequivocally positive, with audiences frequently commenting on her mixing skills and track selection.
Simina's musical career has been building rapidly over the last couple of years; her sound has spread throughout clubs in Toronto, Miami, New York, and all over Europe. She’s played alongside some of techno’s leading artists and, just earlier this year, performed as the opening act for the 2010 Berlin Calling Concert Tour with Paul Kalkbrenner. She has also been featured on industry-renowned radio stations including DI.fm and deepervibes.net.
Simina Grigoriu is one of techno’s burgeoning talents to watch. Her performance and hard work are quickly building credibility and getting her much deserved attention in these early stages of her career. With the release of her first EP, “Mukluks & Ponytails,” last winter on Sonat Records, she went from playing venues of a few hundred to a few thousand people in the span of one year, selling out her records at every concert event.
