Club culture’s most curious icon
In 2023, Peggy Gou is both one of the world’s most accomplished DJs, and one of club culture’s most recognisable faces. Yet her musical curiosity - born during her formative years spent in London - remains undiminished even as her fame and skill as a DJ have grown. She cites Japanese electronic pioneers Yellow Magic Orchestra and cult gay disco producer Patrick Cowley as influences; and regularly drops tracks from labels like Hessle Audio and Hyperdub in front of thousand-strong audiences. That balance of big-room savvy and musical eclecticism makes her a headliner for Sónar Lisboa 2023.
