Listen to “Gas Me Up” HERE
first breaking into the scene in 2018, LP Giobbi has become
one of the fastest-rising artists in the global electronic realm. She ended
2019 on a high note with both Billboard Dance and Your
EDM anointing her as an emerging artist to watch and rung in the new
decade with an acclaimed performance at SnowGlobe.
DJ, pianist, and producer kicks off the new decade with a fiery new single, “Gas
Me Up,” featuring frequent collaborator hermixalot, her second single
on Thrive Music that’s out today. Spotlighting LP’s rattling
percussion, deep subsonic bass lines, playful piano loops, and hermixalot’s
bombastic vocals, “Gas Me Up” is sure to dominate dance floors this season. The
release follows Giobbi’s recent collaborations with Crush Club
on the techno driven “Angel” and TT the Artist
on the frenetic single “Jungle Queen.”
the track, hermixalot says, “Gas Me Up” started as a joke song called Peanut
Butter Mood. We were in the studio with our friend Jeffrey and he was obsessed
with the fact that I worked at Jamba Juice when I was a teenager and they had a
smoothie called Peanut Butter Moo’d. So originally, and admittedly after a
couple of bourbons, I recorded an entire song about a love affair I had with a
coworker. It was really silly. We had so much fun in the studio that day.
Later, LP extrapolated what became ‘Gas Me Up.’ The original line is actually
‘gas me up, I am the gas, pour me up, I am the juice, it’s a peanut butter
mood.’ I think we ended up going out that night to party, so it really captures
our pre-party vibes. The song became a pre-party anthem for us, and I think
that’s the energy it’ll bring to people that listen to it. I hope it becomes
every friend group’s jam when they’re getting ready to go cause trouble with
Giobbi will be joining Anderson.PAAK, Kurt Vile and others this weekend at 4XFar Festival this Saturday from 12-12:45 in Coachella Valley, CA. More dates to be announced later this month.

today taking over dance floors the world over. In addition to LP playing piano,
she adds a Roland TR8S Drum Machine and a Roland TB-03 bass line synth. This
allows her to get beyond the decks and create tracks live in the moment.
