Das Energi not only had a killer lineup this year, featuring deadmau5, Kaskade, Dillon Francis, Rezz and many more over the weekend — but they brought in the hottest rising act in EDM as a special guest.
If you haven’t guessed already, or caught on by all the buzz on social media, we’re talking about 1788-L. The mysterious producer made his festival debut last night from the early hours into the sunrise, and he didn’t hold back one bit.
Even through the videos below, we can feel the insane energy 1788-L was radiating and how well it was received by the crowd. Those who stumbled upon this secret set were treated to a new wave of music from the artist including his latest, “N U / V E R / K A.”
Hopefully this means 1788-L will be infiltrating the festival circuit from here on out, because us Drones need more of this. Shoutout to Das Energi for bringing in a top notch special guest.

Been waiting years for @deadmau5 to venture out to SLC again… and I finally got to see him last night. By far one of my favorite shows. Seeing @OfficialRezz @deadmau5 & @l_1788 all in one night, thanks guys for putting on such an amazing show! pic.twitter.com/CFWTOTbmMJ
