It takes strength to be dogged and determined in 2020. Fortunately for listeners and homemade dance floors the world over, LP Giobbi has both in spades. Bluster abounds on “Gas Me Up.” The DJ-producer’s January 2020 collaboration with hermixalot. Squeezing an abundance of ideas in less than four minutes, it stacked propulsive club percussion atop boisterous vocals and cascading piano flourishes.

The artist born Leah Chisholm also made a name for herself as a label owner, curator, and advocate for female artists. The self-identifying piano house queen cultivates her reputation through collaboration, teaming with TT The Artist and songwriter Claire George for respective standout singles “Jungle Queen” and “Perfect Fire.” She’s also the head of FEMME HOUSE, an initiative dedicated to empowering and uplifting female-identifying artists.
Lockdown and all, LP Giobbi channeled momentum to make this year her own. Her Little Boots collab “Meet Again,” released in September, has more than 1 million streams on Spotify. Beyond its addictive rubbery bassline, the forward-facing title resonates deeply in a year spent away from dance floors.
LP Giobbi recently took over Bandsintown LIVE for a FEMME HOUSE showcase featuring appearances by XKYLAR, AmyElle and Mary Droppinz. She’ll also grace Bonnaroo’s three-day Virtual ROO-ALITY livestream this weekend.
