1788-L has released his second extended play, S Y N T H E T I K. Released via Deadbeats, S Y N T H E T I K is comprised of four collaboration sessions of synthesized orchestra, with an emphasis on sub-frequencies. After bursting onto the scene last year with his precise remix work, including an official Illenium rework, and a collaboration with REZZ to boot, the computerized persona is taking form in 2019 with a number of festival appearances, and inclusion in Zeds Dead‘s tour, where 1788-L is providing support. 1788-L jump-started 2019 with particular strength via the Ekali tag team effort, “R U I N.”
The longform project starts with the title track, “S Y N T H E T I K,” which features Slooze. And what a brick to your face this opening track is–it’s a fist-full of bass with dancing glitches. The second of the EP’s four total tracks, “M A L F U N K T” bears the musical markings of the enigmatic co-producer, Deathpact, who works alongside 1788-L’s thunder static on this take. The penultimate cut, “O R G A N I K” with totto is raw, while S Y N T H E T I K’s final song, “W I C K E D,” cuts like a knife. “W I C K E D” features producer, josh pan.
