Half of SoundCloud Showed Up To 1788-L's CRAZY Debut In LA Last Night [VIDEO]
The past 6 months have been insane for mystery artist 1788-L. Though the debut track from the project was “Replica” in January, it wasn’t until the “Particle Arts” flip that people started taking notice. And it was only a month later that Rezz was playing out an unreleased ID that would later become “HEX” at Ultra Music Festival.
The rise of 1788-L has been nothing but meteoric, but even that was nothing compared to the hype behind the debut live show of the project last night in Los Angeles with Brownies & Lemonade. An insane amount of people RSVP’d for the event which could safely only hold roughly 800 – if they pushed it. RSVPs reopened the day of the event and were closed again just 15 minutes, after presumably hundreds more flooded the submission forms. The line for the event wrapped around the block twice an hour before doors opened.
In attendance at the event were Quix, Luca Lush, Ducky, Boombox Cartel, Ooah from The Glitch Mob, Mr Carmack, Chet Porter, Electric Mantis, Brillz, HVDES, Hex Cougar, Pixel Terror and probably more that just wanted to experience the event.
Take a look at the videos and tweets from the event below.
This is one the best days my life for one reason alone: The Glitch Mob just sent me an exclusive flexi disc what is surely the first single from their upcoming album. On the same flexi disc are the words “See Without Eyes” with a date that reads May 4, 2018.
Whether this name and accompanying date are for this, the debut single f their new album, or for the entirety the album itself remains to be seen–however I believe this information pertains to this particular single.
The Glitch Mob have had an indescribable impact in my life through their music and performances and I’m absolutely delighted they decided to share this with me ahead the general public. If Ooah, Boreta, or edIT are reading this, thank you from the bottom my heart.
The demo, while grainy cause the inherent lack quality with flexi discs, imparts a true Glitch Mob sound with a more palatable, poppy vocal than some previous releases. You’ll just have to check it out yourself to see what I’m talking about…
