When he debuted in 2018, 1788-L was everything. He was on every lineup, had collaborations with Rezz, Illenium, and more, and was hyped to become a leader in the midtempo scene. Then, the pandemic happened. While some soldiered through and found success with live streams and other forms of engagement, others retreated and focused on mental health, production, brand, design, or just themselves.
Whatever the case, 1788-L’s output in COVID era decreased compared to the previous few years, but that all changes soon. With a new logo reveal, as well as the first time he’s publicly shown his face, a new era of 1788-L is upon us.
Will there be new music? Almost certainly. New shows announced? Most likely. The form and style of which is to be determined. But if you’ve been hibernating as a fan, you’re going to want to follow him now as he has something up his sleeve.
