Premiere: Daft Punk – Rinzler (1788-L Remix)
It’s unclear who 1788-L is or what they have in store for the newly launched project, but based on the two originals and (now) two remixes to the project’s catalog, it’s clear the producer behind the scenes is making some of the grittiest, hardest bass music out there. For the latest flip, 1788-L lends a hand to one of Daft Punk‘s numbers from the Tron: Legacy album they scored, titled “Rinzler.”
The French duo’s original is a grandiose build of orchestral strings and running synths, which 1788-L keeps intact with some added, booming drum hits. However, it’s the drop that will have listeners’ jaws on the floor, as the producer unleashes a speaker-breaking arrangement of synth scrapes, pounding 808s, and crunching distortion reminiscent of Porter Robinson‘s live edit of “Fresh Static Snow.”
For fans of bass and heavy genres, 1788-L is one to watch.
