peggy gou announces 'dj-kicks' compilation

  • south korean born and berlin based dj, designer, producer, model, peggy gou has been named as the latest selector to curate the 69th edition of its long-running mix series, dj-kicks.

  • gou's instalment will be released on june 28th and includes "hungoo," the first song she ever wrote.

  • gou describes her addition to !k7's series as being "a portrayal of her musical journey," as opposed to a pure relfection of her dj sets. the 73-minute mix features tracks by aphex twin, kode 9, and pearson sound alongside jrms, an artist signed to her gudu label.

  • the album artwork shows gou posing alongside a tiger. "as the first korean woman to contribute to the dj-kicks series i wanted to do something from my heritage," she said in a statement. "i chose the tiger, which is very important in korean traditions and a metaphor for my personality. as it is not humane to shoot with a real tiger, i and the photographer, jonas lindstroem, used a library image to make a composite. the tiger disappears when you turn to the inside-cover photo, to highlight that these beautiful animals are already extinct in my home country and in danger of disappearing from our world entirely."

  • stream "pert" by hiver, a selection from the mix, below:

spacetime continuum, "fluresence"
peggy gou, "hungboo (dj-kicks)"
pearson sound, "earwig
