Peggy Gou

Few artists in recent memory have made such an impact on popular culture as Peggy Gou. From underground sensation to global icon, Gou has become one of the world’s most recognisable and recognised names in dance music and beyond. As the founder of music and design label Gudu and as a keen collaborator with a family of distinctive creatives, Gou has distilled these passions into a celebration of electronic music and alternative culture, a personal vision that resonates universally. Having moved from Korea to study in London and experienced the glory years of much-missed club Plastic People, the whirlwind time since has seen Gou honouring electronic music's heritage whilst imprinting upon it her own unique personality. 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, Jigoo (with US house music legend Maurice Fulton), Nabi (with fellow Korean sensation OHHYUK) and I Go earning global acclaim. 

These iconic tracks have led to a touring schedule that has taken in the world’s leading clubs and festivals, from Glastonbury to Dekmantel, De School to Printworks, alongside her own personally curated ‘Pleasure Gardens’ - an annual sell out one day festival in London’s Finsbury Park now in its fourth year. Gou’s 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.

In 2023, Gou has teamed up with XL Recordings for the release of her current single “(It Goes Like) Nanana”. The single is Gou’s first release for the label and the first track from her hotly anticipated debut album. Her first new music in two years, “(It Goes Like) Nanana” has quickly become a worldwide phenomenon. Topping the singles charts in multiple countries and soon to be streamed over a quarter of a billion times it sees Gou straddling the underground and mainstream in a way most artists can only aspire to.
