It was announced yesterday afternoon that Peggy Gou has been invited to Dublin by Trinity College tomorrow evening to receive the Gold Medal of Honorary Patronage of the University Philosophical Society.
The Korean born DJ/Producer spent several years studying fashion and living in London before making the decision to go full-time into music and moving to Berlin. She has since gone on to become one of the biggest names in dance music in the last few years. Her early releases such as ‘Six-O-Six’ and ‘Day Before Yesterday’ were released through the world renown Phonica Records, London’s leading vinyl specialists. After this release, she went on to pick up gigs at clubs such as Panorama Bar while also playing alongside the likes of The Black Madonna and DJ Koze.
However, it was her ‘’Once’’ EP on the notorious Ninja Tune imprint that pole-vaulted her into being one of dance musics biggest stars. The lead track from the release ‘It Makes You Forget’ went on to become one of the biggest tracks of 2018 with huge support coming from some of the biggest names in the industry.
The ceremony will be taking place in the Chamber of the Graduates Memorial Building in Trinity College tomorrow evening. Click here for the event page.
