Covering things Korean in London and beyond since 2006

Peggy Gou’s busy couple of weeks in London

Peggy Gou

Berlin-based Korean DJ Peggy Gou seems to be everywhere right now: on the March cover of British music magazine Mixmag

…where she provides this month’s cover mix;

…on BBC Radio 1, where she made her Essential Mix debut in the small hours of yesterday morning, with the BBC’s Pete Tong introducing her as ‘arguably the hottest DJ in the world’ (you can hear her set on the BBC website for the next few weeks);

…an in-store set at Phonica Records earlier this month to celebrate the launch of her EP Once;

…a night-time charity set in East London this evening in aid of the UN Women National Committee UK, in an event “addressing the challenging topic of gender equality in the music world”;

…and culminating in a Mixmag Live set at the Village Underground on 6 April.

There’s a nice interview with her in Mixmag magazine, where you will find this little gem:

She has experimented a lot with incorporating traditional Korean music into her work and lays down vocals in Korean; soon she’s taking a few weeks off to learn a Korean instrument called the gayageum to add even more organic sounds to her production arsenal.

Sounds interesting.

Tickets are still available for the 6 April gig from the Village Underground website.
