Born in South Korea but now Berlin-based, Peggy Gou is one of the hottest DJ's around. Fans scream her name as she steps on stage to spin the decks, eager to sample her distinctive yet non-genre-conforming sound. Each set differs from the last, ranging from disco to house to techno. Her passion for exploring different sounds is arguably what makes Gou one of the most exciting contemporary DJ's.
Her creative pursuit first began with fashion, where she undertook a course at the London College of Fashion. Upon discovering that she wasn’t so in to styling others, she moved to Berlin to experiment with music. One of her aims was to be the first Korean female to play Berghain, and so she began DJing continuously. She released her first record in 2016 ‘Art of War’ EP and fulfilled her objective by playing a Berghain Panorama Bar DJ set.
Gou is gaining more and more reputation as she tours the world, playing at many festivals and supporting well-known acts. She is creating more tunes, having recently lent her vocals to newer material such as ‘Han Jan’ that features Korean rapping, and is due to release an album soon. Gou also campaigns for more opportunities for young musicians, such as her work as a pannellist for the UN’s HeForShe campaign.
