LP Giobbi, the rising US pianist, DJ, producer, entrepreneur, activist, & founder of FEMME HOUSE, has announced her signing with revered independent label Ninja Tune, via their imprint Counter Records. In celebration of the announcement, she has released a brand new single ‘All In A Dream’, featuring DJ Tennis and Joseph Ashworth, out now.
‘All In A Dream’ marks LP Giobbi’s first single since “Sinner”, her hit track with rising UK vocalist and producer Bklava from earlier this year. “All In A Dream” features LP Giobbi on acoustic piano, layered with synths, beats, and a real drum kit – the combination of real and synthesised instruments lending a warm, expansive sound to the house track.
LP Giobbi states “‘All in a Dream’ came together in such a fun and fluid way. I started working on the idea of the track with one of my favourite producers, Le Chev (Michael Cheever) and I was in Miami with Sofi Tukker and they walked into the studio and heard the record and Tucker immediately said ‘I have this vocal sample that would be perfect.’ I threw it in the session and it was in the same key and fit perfectly. I eventually played it for DJ Tennis and Ashworth and Tennis suggested we record live drums for it so we spent a joyous day in the studio trying out all sorts of beats with a live drummer. Tennis and Ashworth then ran the track through outboard gear that made me want to crawl into the frequencies of the piano and never leave.”
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.
