EDITORS’ NOTES

As one of Berlin’s rising-star DJ/producers, Peggy Gou stirs up vintage-sounding house and disco with tribal rhythms, burbling acid basslines, and sensual vocals. Once, her first EP for London label Ninja Tune, finds her singing over her own compositions for the first time ever—and in her native Korean. Hear her breathy vocals on “It Makes You Forget (Itgehane)” and whisper-rapping on the party cut “Han Jan,” which features an English-sung chorus.

About Peggy Gou

Peggy Gou seemed to appear out of nowhere in 2016, releasing no less than four 12" EPs of bright, slightly hazy house tracks during the course of the year. In actuality, the Seoul-born artist had been producing and DJ'ing for several years -- she learned to beatmatch in Korea in 2009, and resumed the hobby a couple years later, when she was attending the London College of Fashion. After racking up gigs during the next few years, she made her breakthrough in 2016, releasing two Art of War EPs on Radio Slave's Rekids imprint, "Day Without Yesterday" on Phonica White, and Seek for Maktoop on Technicolour. She also played dozens of gigs across the globe, including dates with Moodymann, the Black Madonna, Jackmaster, and others. Following an even busier 2017, which included her first American tour and a monthlong BBC Radio 1 residency, Gou returned to the studio. Her Once EP was released by Ninja Tune in 2018, led by "It Makes You Forget (Itgehane)," a catchy single featuring Gou's Korean-language vocals. ~ Paul Simpson
