If you’re tapped into the world of electronic dance music, LP Giobbi has probably popped up on your radar quite a bit over the past year. Hailing from Oregon, she’s one to mix live instruments into her high-energy sets with her weapons of choice being Pioneer decks, a piano, synth bass and drum machine. LP Giobbi has pumped new life into the electronic music scene and is certainly not going anywhere anytime soon so it’s time to hop on the bandwagon before it leaves the station!

When it comes to the United States dance music scene, bass continues to be the genre of preference of fans with the country serving up a lethal dose of homegrown talent with Ace Aura being one of the bunch. Pumping new life into the scene with his chord-driven take on dubstep keeps things fresh and that is exactly why he is one of the most promising producers in the game. Why blend in when you can stand out? Ace Aura is going to things his way.



If you’re the type that tends to indulge in the light-hearted and ethereal realm of electronic music, Denver’s Covex is a name you should be familiar with if you aren’t already. Upping the tempo in with a bevy of originals, he continues to evolve in terms of production with each and every release with 2021 being the year he takes that next step. Boasting a discography of majestic tunes anyone can enjoy, Covex is certainly one to watch.



Being a name who hit the ground running last year with a steady barrage of releases out of the gate and has yet to take his foot off the gas, DVRKO has proven to be quite the force to be reckoned with. Being a masked man of mystery who keeps things consistent with well-produced, electronic music that features sharp hooks and memorable melodies, it is clear the reign of DVRKO has just begun.
