Berlin-based Korean DJ Peggy Gou wanted to the be the first female Korean DJ to play Berghain. Now, having more than exceeded her goal, Gou’s become the first female Korean DJ to play BBC Radio 1‘s Essential Mix, and she’s not showing any signs of stalling her meteoric rise to stardom anytime soon.
A dynamic testament to her compelling curation and outpouring love for music, Gou moves from Arthur Russel’s “See-Through,” South Korean composer Yoon Sang’s “The Dawn,” and J Dilla’s “U and Ur Smile” with ease. If possessing cool and collected poise were a contest, Gou would indisputably win every time, and her Essential Mix may as well serve as the perpetual soundtrack.
