After the internationally acclaimed release of their debut collaboration Snowblower on Octopus Recordings in February 2021, Kuukou label boss Simina Grigoriu and Milan-based producer Stiv Hey are now teaming up again to prepare for the release of their incredible follow-up album, Remote Alliance.
Now available through Simina's longstanding imprint Kuukou Records, Remote Alliance is the latest techno weapon to add to the extensive musical arsenal of the German imprint as Simina and Stiv join forces to deliver a second offering of gigantic proportions.
Driving and aggressive, while remaining nuanced and deliberate at the same time, the impressive single pulsates with dark midnight energy throughout its duration, while the formidable producers continue their endless exploration of soundscapes in the fascinating depths of techno euphoria.
An intoxicating mix of complicated rhythms, rolling acid basslines and masterfully manipulated vocal samples, the unique underground treatment gradually unfolds over the course of the seven-minute cut, while the two producers unravel a complex carpet of enticing soundscapes and melodic breakdowns to create another extraordinary work to deliver showcase in the avant-garde techno production.
Regarding the publication, Simina Grigoriu commented:
“It's an honor to bring out another track with my pseudo brother Stiv Hey! It's not often that you just click with someone in the studio and I have so much respect for the way they work. We are releasing this on my label Kuukou Records so I am EXTRA proud of it. I hope you like it!"
Stiv Hey continued:
“Getting to know Simina was a very happy and special moment for me, we met during a very intense experience through some mutual friends and we clicked from the first minute. She is such a great woman and a talented musician. I don't do collaborations very often, but we really felt connected and wanted to do something together. Soooo … that's how this track came about, and I'm sure there will be more in the future! "
Regularly praised by artists such as Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Sven Vath and Marco Carola, Stiv Hey's productions are characterized by an accurate mix of solid basslines, refined dark groove and mesmerizing sounds. With huge releases on some of the biggest and best techno labels over the course of his ten year career, Stiv Hey's raw passion and talent also extends to his stunning live performances, gracing the DJ booths at countless internationally renowned venues including Fire London, TakeOff Milano, Ker Barcelona, Brancaleone Rome, Bass: ment Stockholm and Pacha Mumbai, to name a few.
