“This label is simply about good dance music, made for the dancefloor that expands your mind and makes you feel good.” – LP Giobbi
DJ, songwriter, and producer LP Giobbi continues to raise the bar and she announces the launch of her new Yes Yes Yes imprint. Part of the Defected Records family of labels, LP Giobbi is stepping up as a newly appointed label boss with Yes Yes Yes, which puts forth its first release on September 29, “Time Expands,” by the label founder herself.
It’s apropos of Giobbi to launch the label imprint with a track of her own, but would we have it any other way? “Time Expands” makes for a stellar introductory song for Yes Yes Yes. With its deep, chugging bassline, lo-fi synths and LP’s signature musicality, the “Time Expands” is married together by otherworldly spoken word. The song also marks the first time that LP has ever used her own vocals on a record.
According to LP Giobbi, “the whole song came to me pretty quickly all at once and I thought it would be so fun to have a weird psychedelic message floating over the dancefloor and the repetitive groove. This song is made for weirdos on an open-minded dancefloor, similar to one you might find at the Oregon Country Fair, and it made me want to have a separate outlet to release these kinds of tunes thus giving birth to Yes Yes Yes.”
“I grew up going to this hippie festival in Oregon called the Oregon Country Fair. My parents started going in their 20s and I have never missed it since the womb. It’s my favorite place on earth because it leans into weirdness, joy and mind opening experiences. The first thing you see when you walk on site is a sign that just says, ‘Yes Yes Yes’ and it makes me smile ear to ear every single year. This label is not beholden to one genre or one particular sound. It’s simply about good dance music, made for the dancefloor that expands your mind and makes you feel good.” – LP Giobbi
Speaking of the launch of Yes Yes Yes, Defected CEO Wez Saunders said, “LP Giobbi is one of the most exciting talents of recent times – a fantastic DJ, pianist and producer, LP will now be supported by the Defected infrastructure as A&R with the launch of her new Yes Yes Yes label. Having worked together for a number of years, LP has released across both Defected and D4 D4NCE, as well as playing multiple events across Europe and America. Whenever LP releases or plays for the labels, the magic just happens. Our fans are super connected to LP, and as such I am sure they will be very excited about our affiliation with Yes Yes Yes.”
To coincide with the launch of the imprint, LP Giobbi has also announced a series of Yes Yes Yes afterparties across in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Toronto and Chicago as part of her Light Places album tour. The first live offering under the Yes Yes Yes brand, LP will continue to bring the open-minded ethos to dancefloors across the globe as part of the label’s plans.
