Korean-born, Berlin-based artist Peggy Gou’s stock has been rising fast and now is she is set to release her new Seek For Maktoop EP via Ninja Tune's Technicolour imprint. The EP’s title track is a groove-heavy production which is “coaxed from her beloved MPC3000”, five minutes of blissed-out beats.
Peggy Gou said: "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."
Seek For Maktoop drops on 14 October.
