The Hydra have revealed the final additions to its Autumn series, which run between Saturday 22nd October and Saturday 31st December at a variety of London venues including Studio Spaces, Village Underground, Phonox and Bussey Building.
The hype around Peggy Gou continued unabated in 2019, after she broke through into the mainstream last year with radio hits like the Ninja Tune-signed ‘It Makes You Forget’ and countless headline DJ gigs at festivals and clubs around the world. The South Korean DJ, producer and label boss joined the esteemed list of contributors to the ‘DJ-Kicks’ mix series this year, putting together a highly credible blend of tracks from artists like I:Cube, Aphex Twin and Kyle Hall, while she also became a fashion designer, launching the KIRIN clothing line.
Another new avenue for Peggy Gou was her record label Gudu, which, in addition to a new two-tracker by Gou herself, ‘Moment EP’, also released a curveball in the form of an EP from DMX Krew, ‘Don’t You Wanna Play?’. As far as gigs were concerned, Gou worked nonstop, appearing everywhere from Australia to Thailand, Georgia to Bulgaria, dropping into DC-10 in Ibiza and Dimensions festival in Croatia. Still to come in 2019 (before a much-deserved rest) are shows at Printworks in London, Time Warp festival in Sao Paulo, and Space Miami.
Glastonbury has locked in Four Tet, Jayda G, Peggy Gou and Ben UFO, among others, for its Silver Hayes area dance programme.
The legendary Somerset festival, taking place from 26th June through to 1st July, has used the Silver Hayes section of Worthy Farm as the festival goers' dance music mecca, with six tents and stages.
