Not many producers can boast the same meteoric rise that 1788-L underwent when he came onto the scene just a couple of years ago. The mysterious producer caught the attention of EDM fans after he released his startling flip to the track Particle Arts by Virtual Self. He then went on to debut an underground show in L.A. hosted by the Brownies & Lemonade collective.

And now, the synthetic automaton known as 1788-L is embarking on a headlining spring tour, with stops in the Pacific Northwest! On June 13th, he’ll be playing Beyond Wonderland at the Gorge Ampitheater followed by a Portland show on the 18th. It should be noted that the Portland date was originally for April 16th, but was rescheduled due to the event ban related to Covid-19. See the full list of tour dates below:

What to expect

A good way to describe 1788-L’s music is midtempo, cyberpunk-infused electro with a cinematic touch. Expect heavy, gritty basslines backed by themes of virtuality and artificial intelligence. Listen to his track Destiny (featuring Blanke) below for an idea of his sound:

Since 2018, 1788-L has released two EPs — Sentience (2018) and Synthetik (2019). Add that to his impressive catalog of singles, which include features with Rezz, Ekali, The Glitch Mob, and more. Additionally, 1788-L has opened for big names such as Rezz and Illenium, has played countless festivals, and releases music under the Deadbeats record label.

So much music released in such a short amount of time means that 1788-L’s sets are unique, cohesive, and full of originals. This show will be a must for anyone wanting to catch the underground sounds of a rising talent. Tickets for the Portland show and for Beyond Wonderland are on sale now!
