LP GIOBBI & HERMIXALOT Release Collab ‘GAS ME UP’
Since 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.
The 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.”
Of 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 the squad.”
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.
