Peggy Gou for 2016
Originally from Seoul South Korea, Peggy Gou moved to Berlin to work on music wholeheartedly a couple years ago. From working in a record store to being surrounded by influential people like Daniel Wang in her neighborhood, Peggy Gou has been making progress in crafting a distinct sound. 2016 she makes her mark with already two records on the market; Day Without Yesterday / Six O Six out on Phonica White Label and Art of War EP out now on Rekids. Her dreams are finally becoming a reality and hopefully she will be the first Korean female to DJ at Berghain as she mentions in her recent Dummy interview.
Her newest record Art of War Pt.II features two new originals, 'Jen High' & 'When Round, They Go'. L.I.E.S. producer Terreke serves up a rework of 'When Round, They Go' that is absolutely on point, and does the original justice. From funky basslines to fleeting body moving satisfaction on 'Jen High' to the phasing cerebral 303 melodies in 'When Round, They Go' it is clear that across all of Peggy's records put out this year, she is versatile in her house, techno, acid influenced musicality. Peggy's making waves, and she is here to stay. The Art of War Pt.II EP is out April 8th on Rekids. Stream all the tracks off the new release below courtesy of XLR8R, Inverted Audio, and i-D...
