While the rest of the world is going crazy over k-pop stars, a Korean DJ, producer, and fashion icon is taking center stage
Far from the pastel pink outfits of Korean pop stars, DJ Peggy Gou’s streetwear and hypnotic beats are taking over the underground global music scene.
Peggy Gou is a producer and DJ based in Berlin who has cemented her status in Asia, North America, and Europe. From acid to Chicago house, her seamless blending of diverse tracks is truly one to watch.
The Korean-born musician is known for her energetic taste, which is evident as she explores different music genres. According to her, she wants every EP to be unique and distinct.
After she moved and made waves in underground circles, she developed a unique style of playing music and producing tracks. Peggy Gou released four EPs in 2016 which includes her debut, Seek for Maktoop. The next year, she played more than a hundred gigs. In April this year, she released her newest EP entitled Moment.
The sought-after musician moved to London from Incheon when she was just 14 years old. She was already interested in music. However, her first love was fashion. Her knowledge even intensified as she studied style and media at London College of Fashion in hopes to become a designer.
Peggy Gou gave initially thought fashion was not her calling. Although she had fun styling herself, styling others was simply not her forte. When she realized that her true passion lies in music, she moved to the vibrant city of Berlin where techno music is widely celebrated.
