It’s Peggy Gou’s world — bumping house, Louis Vuitton luggage, chic sunglasses, chic art, — and we’re just living in it. The South Korean Berlin-based DJ and producer has achieved worldwide acclaim, and amid some well-reported industry sexism. Gou was the first female DJ of Korean descent to play at Berlin’s famed night club Berghain. This accolade was followed by sets for Boiler Room followed by a non-stop festival itinerary that has taken her across the globe.
