Korean-born and Berlin-based Peggy Gou is poised to take over in 2018. She’s just released a new single “It Makes You Forget (Itgehane),” equally as sleek as it is stunning, which has been lifted from her forthcoming Once EP out on Ninja Tune March 2.
Known for her groove-laden, simplistic production style, both Gou’s vehement passion and vivacious air have contributed to her ascension in the underground DJ ranks. Now she’s even singing her own lyrics for the first time in her native Korean tongue. “I’ve recorded my voice before but this time I tried to sing… I’m not a pro singer but I did my best,” she says.
Gou described her forthcoming EP in a press release:
“I really wanted to represent different styles and moods on this EP, from ‘open air’ warm-up vibes to ‘proper party’. I tried to draw on all my influences of the last few years, from electro, African music, early ’90s house music and also techno, especially Maurice Fulton and DMX Krew.”
