Review: Coming across like a mixture of Soichi Terada's sublime deep house and the pacy rhythms of late 90s UK techno, the title track of Mogwaa aka Seungyoung Lee's debut release on Gudu is a distinctive affair. He slows down the pace somewhat on the robust rhythms of "Cloudride", but the cosmic vibes remain, articulated by easy-listening keys and swirling synths. "Spatial Bliss" sees the South Korean producer explore a more chilled approach, with snappy drums and a laid-back groove underpinning blissed out melodies, while on "Fizz" Mogwaa deploys a chilling string sequence over sparse electro 808s - a suitably futuristic finale to this spellbinding release.

I Go (DJ Koze remix - edit) - (6:42) 124 BPM
Review: Released last year, 'I Go' saw Peggy Gou in Italo-disco-influenced synth-pop mode, with psychedelic acid lines, sweet South Korean vocals and attractive melodies rising above a Bobby Orlando-esque bassline. Here the track is given a new lease of life by a trio of high-profile producers. Belgian behemoths Soulwax do a terrific job in re-inventing the track as a retro-futurist, warehouse-ready house epic - all muscular sequenced bass, bustling drums, rave-igniting stabs and hands-in-the-air intent. DJ Koze does a lovely job of re-framing 'I Go' as a bubbly, bright and breezy nu-disco number, while Maurice Fulton delivers one of those killer re-rubs based around his funky, cut-up bass guitar lines, Nile Rodgers guitar licks and sparse-but-snappy percussion.

Review: After a decade spent dashing between labels including Curle Recordings, Polifonic, Fides and Bukhari, Hiver has parked their sonic spaceship in the virtual docking bay of Peggy Gou's Gudu imprint. The Italian twosome are in typically far-sighted and futurist mode throughout, first unveiling a surging, rush-including slab of piano-laden Italian dream house/acid-flecked sci-fi techno fusion ('The Initiative'), before effortlessly switching to sparkling, super-sonic electro ('Vapour'). The Italian twosome then blur the boundaries between electro and techno with the gorgeous musical star-shower that is 'Entangle'. To close out proceedings, they wrap a tactile, squeezable techno groove in cascading electronic motifs and psychedelic, acid-style tweakery. In a word: ace!

Review: Ukranian producer Brian De Palma's recent debut on Peggy Gou's GUDU imprint, Call Me By Your Nail, was quietly impressive. This speedy sequel is, if anything, even better, with the sometime Rush Hour and Dekmantel contributor bouncing between sparkling, synth-driven, melody-rich jacking house (the gorgeous, '80s synth-pop influenced brilliance of 'IQarus'), kaleidoscopic blends of mid-'80s Pet Shop Boys and early Orbital ('Purple Brain') and futurist techno smothered in 8-bit electronics, emotive chords, psychedelic electronics and rushing lead lines ('O.W.D (Once Were Dancers)'). The obligatory remix comes from fast-rising producer Deniro, who smothers 'IQarus' in emotive chords and waves of glittering electronics on a fine peak-time techno take.

Jack's Jive (DMX Krew extended remix) - (5:42) 129 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Next up on Peggy Gou's label is an offbeat release from Riff. The title track revolves around a jittery electro rhythm that plays host to quirky, Italo-style melodies and oddball synth lines. Borrowing from a range of influences, it makes for a distinctive track. The label has commissioned two fine remixes from DMX Krew. On the first version, the UK electro pioneer brings the melodies to the fore, setting them against steely drums and subtle snares. The extended take sees him focus more closely on the dance floor, as a snaking groove is fused with bubbling 808s and a pulsating bass, making for a killer future-retro jam.

Mahfudzot (I:Cube remix) - (6:34) 62 BPM
Review: The latest release Gudu is an idiosyncratic affair, with the title track setting a distinctive scene: based on a rolling groove, it sees Dea layer wave upon wave of sounds over staccato drums, a walking funk bass and crashing cowbells. On "Zaria Sto Chaos", Dea follows a different artistic trajectory. Utilising a pulsating disco groove and clipped drums for the track's basis, he drops celebratory piano keys and a mysterious vocal sample that winds its way through the arrangement. "Mahfudzot" also features indistinct vocals, with hypnotic chants wrapped around tribal drums - it makes for a left of centre take on modern disco. Rounding off the release is seminal French artist I:Cube with a suitably offbeat, dreamy take on "Mahfudzot".

Review: Not to be confused with Brian De Palma of Scarface or Whirlpool productions fame, Peggy Gou's emerging Gudu label introduces a new project and alias from Alexei Versino. The artist's various escapades so far include releases with Rush Hour, Dekmantel, Off Minor and Uzuri, with the Ukranain born producer taking inspiration from time spent on Egypt's Sinai Peninsula - perhaps audible on the title-track - with watery melodics and a constant groove leading the way in "Farout". Delving into something cut specifically for the club is "Particle Fever" with its deep, techy house mainframe, techno hi-hats and slight touches of dub. And for that real 1970s krautrock trip, check out the emotive bleeps and juicy synths of "Clockroom".

Review: JRMS is a new project between newcomer Joseph Cardone and Massimo Di Lena, a veteran who has released on Cadenza and Royal Oak. Issued on Peggy Gou's label, the project sees the duo deliver a pared back, gritty take on house music. The title track is a shuffling, drum-heavy track featuring repurposed rave stabs and a powerful sub-bass. "Shake" sees them take on board electro influences, with a squelchy low end supporting shuffling drums. Meanwhile on "3", the pair drop a percussive rhythm track that underpins detuned squelches and tight claps. Changing tact again, they deliver the tripped out "Solo", which is sure to work for DJs who like to play deeper.

Maurice Fulton - "Not Sure How I Would" - (6:02) 110 BPM
   
Maurice Fulton - "One Itself" - (5:20) 115 BPM
Review: Those who've met Maurice Fulton - or even just paid close attention to his career over the last couple of decades - will tell you that he seems to inhabit a totally different galaxy to anyone else. We're blessed, then, that he's once again touched down on 'Earth' and delivered a killer EP for Peggy Gou's Gudu label. He joins forces with the South Korean star on deliciously wayward opener "Jigoo", a retro-futurist, turn-of-the-90s style house number smothered in weird electronic noises, starry chords and liquid bass. "Not Sure How I Would" sees him dive into intergalactic jazz-funk territory - think trademark disco bass guitar, trippy noises, live sounding drums and effects for days - while "One Itself" is a skewed drum track laden with hand percussion hits and his trademark weirdo electronic noises.

110 Series - (4:18) 113 BPM
Review: The second release on Peggy Gou's Gudu label comes from a reliable source: long-serving electro/techno fusionist Ed Upton AKA DMX Krew. Upton is in predictably fine form from the off, sprinting his way through the atmospheric late night chords, garage style organ motifs, bustling acid lines and jacking drums of "CJ Vibe". He moves further towards vintage Motor City techno territory on the lusciously melodious but percussively punchy peak-time skip of "DXIOO", before reaching for the boogie synths and proto-house drums on futurist electrofunk number "Don't You Wanna Play". To round things off, Upton brilliantly dips the tempo and layers up spacey melodies over classic analogue bass on "110 Series".
