Peggy Gou

Moment EP

International house sensation Peggy Gou launches her own Gudu Records with the "Moment" EP, a killer double header of dance floor majesty, informed by 30 years of club music and transformed into something all of her own.
The A-side kicks off with "Starry Night" (surely the only Radio 1 daytime play in history with a Korean vocal?) a beautiful fusion of emotional SAE melodies and proto house elements. The pinging bassline and punchy piano could come straight from a Prelude classic, while the sweet synth strings are totally AZN, providing an infectious and energetic backdrop for Peggy's fierce vocal. Top. On the flip "Han Pan" hits us with glassy / metallic synth melodies, a stepping rhythm and hints of island life in the lead line, once again topped by a choice vocal from Peggy. Timeless, anthemic and totally irresistible, this is another essential release from the latest house superstar.



STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: How does she do it? Peggy Gou distils Prelude boogie, proto house and bubblegum style groove into a glorious two track 12" on her new Gudu Records. Featuring her bilingual vocals once again, along with a perfect combination of bump and melody. A true summer anthem!

Gudu Records continues a busy start to 2022 with Italian due Hiver’s debut for the label - a high-definition EP that draws on classic electro and techno, following the group’s acclaimed past releases for Curle Recordings, Bokhari and Deeplabs.

A record that both marks and celebrates Hiver’s 10 years of operation, "Wave Sliding" wears its influences on its sleeve. Lead track "The Initiative" is a tribute to Detroit’s hi-tech funk of the early 2000s, lead by the sort of ostinato bassline and legato strings that have become Hiver’s trademark. "Vapour" and "Entangle" continue the EP’s retro-futurist outlook, drawing on sci-fi imagery and themes of travel, while "Stateless" looks to the easy-trance sounds of 90s dancefloors for inspiration. Together, the tracks mark a perfect summary of Hiver’s vision of the dancefloor - bound together by vibrant colours and a starry-eyed, utopian nature.


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Exhilarating night tracks that'll sound great on the waltzers as well as the dancefloor! Psychedelic leaning, but packing a proggy 90s punch, a most pleasing blend of influences and sounds that mark Hiver as one-2-watch!
