The Berlin-based South Korean DJ, producer and fashion designer has teased her new album with her latest single on XL Recordings.
If there is a DJ and producer who comes with skill, immaculate technique and an irresistible flair, it’s Peggy Gou. With one foot firmly in her South Korean roots and the other steeped deep into the future, with her starry pop brand of music, Peggy Gou is one of the biggest superstars of dance music.
Making her debut in 2016 on German independent label REKIDS, Peggy Gou began with an industrial-leaning style of production until we started seeing a shift in her releases with tunes like ‘Han Jan’ and ‘It Makes You Forget (Itgehane),’ which featured a hazy narrative of house music with electro grit.

Then came the watershed moment of her career when Peggy Gou launched her own record label, Gudu Records, in 2019, on which she released her vocal-led number ‘Starry Night.’ ‘Starry Night’ stands out as a timeless club favorite that has withstood the test of time in a world where music is often treated as disposable. Its popularity has remained consistently high in recent years, cementing its status as a true classic.
After a series of festival runs along with teasing her debut album, Peggy Gou has now given us a glimpse into her first long release on Tim Palmer and Nick Halkes-led influential imprint, XL Recordings. After teasing the tune at the last-ever Printworks show in London, ‘(It Goes Like) Nanana’ is out now on all streaming platforms.
Speaking of the tune, Peggy Gou said: “There’s a feeling we all know but is hard to describe, that feeling of love, warmth and excitement when you’re surrounded by friends and loved ones and the energy speaks for itself.”
As we’re well and truly in the middle of the European summer, Peggy Gou couldn’t have found a better time to release this tune, which is an ode to the classic Café Del Mar days. Classic piano chords coupled with Peggy’s emblematic vocals, ‘(It Goes Like) Nanana’ is sure to take over DJ sets across clubs and festivals this year.
