LP Giobbi is taking it to the next level with the release of her debut EP Playing My Role. The EP consists of two tracks, “Take Me Higher” and “Scuff Your Soul,” mirroring the concept of the A-side and B-side of a record. Both tracks incorporate her bass-rattling house beats, classic piano riffs and dreamy melodic vocals – all which are quickly becoming a hallmark of her signature style.
“Take Me Higher” is beautiful and patient, while “Scruff Your Soul” is more energetic and zestful. Both, however, capture the same magic melodic touch that fans across the world know and love, as LP Giobbi explores the different places her music can take her listeners.
The EP builds on the momentum of her biggest hit yet, her summer club smash “Meet Again ft Little Boots,” which now has over 1.5 million plays across streaming platforms and was named Today’s Dance Anthem on BBC 1 Radio by Mistajam, was premiered by Pete Tong, who championed “Meet Again” on his Essential Selection Radio Playlist, and was in the top 3 most played songs on Diplo’s Revolution channel on SiriusXM in September.
“Playing My Role” sees the rising DJ/Producer taking advantage of these past few months for self discovery.
“I feel like I’m really growing into who I am both as an individual and an artist,” says LP Giobbi. “The timing of everything, especially with what’s going on in the world right now, has allowed me to find confidence in the music I want to make – something slightly more beautiful and melodic, and that’s what “Take Me Higher” reflects.”
Threaded throughout the silky production of “Take Me Higher,” featured artist Hermixalot will have you hooked with her undeniably catchy, anthemic vocals.
“When I was little, I remember my mom listening to ‘’Gonna Make You Sweat” by C + C Music Factory,” said Hermixalot. “She had the cassette single and the tape deck in the car on auto repeat, so we’d listen to it over and over. Martha Wash’s vocal is what was in my head when I recorded this. Something big and strong, but melodic too.”
Following a series of collaborative single releases, both Billboard Dance and 21 have anointed LP Giobbi as an emerging artist to watch 2020, and time has shown that they were right on the mark.
