Peggy Gou has announced some fresh music for 2018 ahead of her Coachella debut in April. Having already laid solid foundations in the underground through 2016 and 2017, the Korean-born/Berlin-living DJ/producer has now shared her stunning new single ‘It Makes You Forget (Itgehane)’ lifted from her forthcoming EP ‘Once’.
Sleek, instantly danceable and effortless in its simplicity, the song shows off a new dimension to Peggy’s signature production style, featuring her composing and actually singing lyrics for the first time – and in her mother tongue Korean too. “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 laughs.
Describing the 3-track 12″ entitled “Once”, she says: “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.”
