Peggy Gou will release her new EP Seek For Maktoop via Ninja Tune's Technicolour imprint on October 14.

Comprising three sweetly-swung, groove-focused productions coaxed from her beloved MPC3000, it's the perfect summation of Peggy's developing sonic signature.

"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."

The Korean-born Berlin resident has quickly established herself as an artist to watch in 2016; earlier this year she showcased her production prowess on a pair of 12"s for Matt Edwards’ Rekids label—Art Of War and Art Of War (Part II)— and an outing on Phonica's consistently excellent Phonica White imprint. She has been equally impressive as a DJ too, playing alongside the likes of Ben Klock, Moodymann, Move D and KiNK.
