LP Giobbi, the rising DJ, producer, pianist, & founder of the nonprofit organisation FEMME HOUSE has shared a remix of her recent single ‘Forever and a Day’ by dance music mainstay and Mad Decent founder Diplo.
The remix strips the song to its melodic core over a propulsive backbeat, rendering it a sun-parched and ebullient banger primed for sweaty dancefloor catharsis. "It is an honor to have Diplo remix this track,” states LP Giobbi. “He made it hit in the club and I'm excited to play it out!" The track arrives on the heels of the remix for her other recent single “All In A Dream (ft DJ Tennis and Joseph Ashworth), by rising dance heavyweight Logic1000.
The remix arrives amid a period of sustained growth for LP Giobbi, having recently been nominated for Breakthrough Producer in DJ Mag’s Best of North America Awards and dropping a pair of new singles for Ninja Tune subsidiary Counter Records, all while criss-crossing the globe for barnstorming sets at festivals and club dates across North America, Europe, Australia, and more. Her wholly unique range of influences - as much indebted to her love of DJ culture as to her degree in piano performance at UC Berkeley and her upbringing by Deadhead parents - is part and parcel of her quest to become what she calls “a one-woman jam band,” utilising her jazz-trained improvisational skills to incorporate live piano and modular electronics to her performances.
About LP Giobbi
Austin-based producer, DJ, pianist and activist LP Giobbi has seen her star rise exponentially in the past year. Already being dubbed “the piano house queen” by press in the US, she has been playing to thousands at a time at festival stages such as Coachella, Lollapalooza and more. She has been selected as an Artist To Watch by Amazon Music and Spotify - who also selected her as a 2022 EQUAL Ambassador.
Fully trained in jazz and classical piano with a degree in Jazz Piano Performance from UC Berkeley, LP Giobbi actually didn’t discover house music until her early twenties. Until then she was brought up with her parents’ love of 60s jam bands such as The Grateful Dead, but when she was taken to see a DJ perform - the unity and togetherness which purveyed the dancefloor via the rhythms of house music spoke to her like never before, and helped change her tastes forever. She now cites herself as a “one woman jam band”, taking all her influences and creating something new in the studio and on stage.
LP Giobbi is the founder and face of FEMME HOUSE, a non-profit educational platform that seeks to create equitable opportunities for women and other marginalized gender expressions in the technical areas of music creation. FEMME HOUSE has offered workshops, online courses, and mentoring to thousands of women, trans, and non-binary artists from around the world, teaching them all levels of production. While monthly workshops are free, online course tuition is offered on a sliding scale and free for WOC, due to the additional inequities that they face within the industry. A scholarship program, in partnership with Ableton, Moog, Native Instruments, and Guitar Center, is also available to the organisation’s BIPOC community. “My purpose is to lift as I climb,” explains Giobbi. “I want to leave this industry in a more equal place.”
Last year, FEMME HOUSE joined forces with Alicia Keys’ She Is the Music and Emily Lazaar’s We Are Moving the Needle for a sold-out, month-long production bootcamp, where over 3000 enrollees from over 1400 cities and 77 countries learned how to produce music together.
