This year, one of the world’s biggest techno festivals turns 25 and, to celebrate, they’re moving the party from Mannheim, Germany for a pop-up in New York (22–23 November) – an occasion that naturally calls for an epic line-up. So, has Time Warp delivered? Well, yes. But never mind Richie Hawtin and Loco Dice, the bigger name on the bill might be Berlin-based South Korean shapeshifter Peggy Gou, who will be crossing the Atlantic after a gig at Printworks London (2 November). A recent profile in the New York Times, a place on the Business of Fashion’s list of industry influencers, and the launch of her own record label, Gudu Records, and streetwear brand Kirin, prove the 28-year-old has made the shift from underground figure to household name (for anyone under 35, anyway). Naturally, that’s caused no end of ire from techno purists, who reckon she’s become too commodified, too much of a clothes horse – as evidenced by the vast amount of Gou-branded accessories sold online. Still, few of her legions of fans care. Read the T-shirts: “Just Gou it”.
