Few artists in recent memory have made the impact of Peggy Gou. Already an icon of club culture and fashion, Gou’s creative instincts and curious spirit could have led her down many paths; designer, pianist, writer or editor. Instead, as one of the world’s most recognisable and recognised DJs, founder of music and design label Gudu and a keen collaborator with a family of distinctive creatives, Gou has distilled each of these passions into a celebration of electronic music and alternative culture, a personal vision that has resonated universally.
Since her 2016 debut, Gou’s natural feel for the warmth, joy and freedom of house and techno’s legacy led to a run of irresistible releases that quickly became international hits; Gou Talk, It Makes You Forget (Itgehane), Starry Night and Jigoo (with US house music legend Maurice Fulton), earning acclaim from Pitchfork, Billboard, the Guardian, Vogue, the New York Times and FADER along the way in addition to landing Peggy on the cover of magazines across both music and fashion.
Her triumphant and timeless DJ sets speak fondly to an open-ended musical philosophy, energised by a diverse range of influences, from J Dilla to Patrick Cowley, the Yellow Magic Orchestra through to DJ Sotofett.
