Who the fuck is 1788-L?
After putting out a remix for Virtual Self last month, they followed up two weeks later with a new original, and now a week after that, a remix for Daft Punk. And usually when people think remixing Daft Punk (dare they even contemplate such a thing), the last place they look is their Tron: Legacy album, yet… here we are.
And the thing about this remix is that even though there’s some Daft Punk at its core, it’s so unmistakably theirs own style now that it boggles the mind. Here you have one the most legendary producer duos that has ever existed, and this person just took one their tracks and remixed the ever-loving fuck out it.
I know this is the most I’ve cursed in an article in a while, and it’s a bit unpressional, but whoever 1788-L is has so much potential it’s mind boggling. It’s been years since an artist has come out nowhere like this and made as much a splash. The stats on the SoundCloud track alone are impressive without even taking the comments into account, which are 100% positive, by the way.
So who is 1788-L? Who the fuck cares, this is dope.
