Sónar by Night - SonarLab - Resident Advisor
Closing Friday night’s exceptional line up at the Resident Advisor SonarLab; South Korea’s Peggy Gou and Berlin based producer Palms Trax team up together for the first time. Between them, this odd couple span the defining trends in club music over the past few years; from melodic, sun kissed house, through to percussive post-acid, making for one of the most anticipated sets of the festival.
Peggy Gou was for many the sound of summer 2018. On the heels of her infectious, instant classic "It makes you forget (Itgehane)" on Ninja Tune, the DJ racked up an impressive number of dates around the world, winning over crowds with her selections of classic house and funky rarities with tropical flourishes. Palms Trax is one of the most respected and adored house music producers working today. With a steady stream of impressive releases since his 2013 debut on Lobster Theremin, Jay Donaldson has shown an instinctive understanding of dance music’s history and future, whilst keeping an open mind to genres from experimental to folk to psychedelia in his popular radio show on Berlin Community Radio.
