LP Giobbi

LP Giobbi is a multi-talented DJ, producer, jazz-trained pianist and activist who is quickly rising to superstar status. Since emerging in the dance scene in 2018, she has performed her “one-woman jam band” DJ sets blending her decks with her live piano plus sampler at high-profile festivals including Coachella, Playing in the Sand, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Tomorrowland and more. She played a string of sold out afterparties for Dead & Company’s final tour across New Orleans, Chicago, Philly, New York City, Boston, Boulder and San Francisco. She’s also supported iconic artists like Diplo, DJ Tennis, Sofi Tukker and Pete Tong (opening up for him two nights at London’s O2 Arena and then sitting in with the Ibiza Classics orchestra on a grand piano to play a song she wrote with them). LP Giobbi’s music has amassed over 150M streams across platforms and is hotly tipped as DJ Mag’s Best Producer of the Year, Spotify’s EQUAL Ambassador, Spotify RADAR’s Artist to Watch, Amazon’s Artists to Watch and TIDAL’s Artist to Watch 2023.


As Giobbi’s profile continues to rise, she continues to grow and explore, improvising her way towards her own musical ideal. She began remixing Jerry Garcia and Grateful Dead music in her sets and after seeing how much of her young fanbase gravitated towards it, she knew there was something there that she could do to bring in a younger generation to this music and culture.  “I love the jam band ethos,” says Giobbi, the daughter of two devoted Deadheads, who often appears onstage in one of an arsenal of Dead t-shirts. The Garcia Family caught wind of what she was doing, and was asked to do an official remix album for Jerry Garcia’s first solo album, Garcia, for its 50th anniversary, “I wanted to show this beautiful world to my community”. Garcia (Remixed) has received incredible love from the existing community, electronic community and this younger generation.


Wanting to change the statistic that only 2% of producers are women, she has provided thousands of female and gender-expansive individuals access to production workshops, online courses, and scholarship programs for LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC creators through her nonprofit FEMME HOUSE. They have also done stage takeovers at EDC and Hulaween Music Festival, as well as a Femme House Tour in partnership with Ableton that included in-person workshops during the day and booking all female/gender expansive lineups at night all across the US in 2022.


LP Giobbi’s debut album, Light Places, released on May 12, 2023 on Ninja Tune’s imprint Counter Records stands as a comprehensive declaration to who she is as an artist. Here, she brings an organic freedom found in improvised music (from long-standing inspirations Bill Evans and The Grateful Dead) and spontaneous collaboration to incorporate core principles of simplicity to often intricate structures of dance music, making for a set of songs that simply feel good. The process of creating complementary tracks coincidentally widened LP Giobbi’s artistic lens to expand her production abilities beyond the confines of crafting standalone singles. This broadened space gave LP Giobbi room to peel back multiple meanings contained in a simple phrase (“If Love is A Skill (feat. Sofi Tukker)”), wield dynamic tom fills and distorted bass with intent (“Georgia”) and harness the never-ending power of love from friends and family (“All I Need”). By the end, the album feels like something greater than itself and will leave anyone who comes across it feeling like anything is possible.
