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 8-9pm, the coveted sunset set 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
