Peggy Gou will release her new EP "Seek For Maktoop" via Ninja Tune's Technicolour imprint on 14th October 2016. Comprising three sweetly-swung, groove-focused productions coaxed from her beloved MPC3000, it's the perfect summation of Peggy's unique sonic signature.
"Maktoop is from the Arabic word maktoob meaning 'written' or 'destiny' so the EP title could be interpreted as 'looking for destiny'," explains Peggy. "It's also a reference to two of my best friends: Sik (or 'Seek') and Bada (who taught me this Arabic word). They have always been very supportive of my music and I wanted to acknowledge that somehow."
The Korean-born Berlin resident has quickly established herself as a rising star of the underground in 2016 showcasing her production prowess on a pair of 12"s for Matt Edwards’ Rekids label - "Art Of War" and "Art Of War (Part II)" - and an outing on Phonica's consistently excellent Phonica White imprint. She has been equally impressive as a DJ too, playing alongside the likes of Ben Klock, Moodymann, Move D and KiNK and has found a fan in Jackmaster who has invited her to play at his upcoming Mastermix parties in Glasgow and Dublin.
