Sounds like Justice.
It opens with a war drum. Drills ahead with haunting synths and a glitchy robotic voice. No warning, no room to breathe, dark dystopian bass is unleashed. A groove keeps things devilishly innocuous, but the second drop elevates the tension.
Welcome to “Cyberspace,” 1788-L’s latest sonic adventure.
The mysterious producer is the hot kid on the EDM block, popping up out of nowhere, dropping heater after heater. In four short months, 1788-L has ventured to remix the likes of Skrillex, Daft Punk, Kraftwerk and Virtual Self, never failing to hit the sweet spot of title track reverence and delectable remix creativity.
Apart from the string of remixes and an explosive track with celebrated artists Illenium and Said The Sky, a few collaborations with rising producers and emphatic originals decorate the enigmatic newcomer’s catalog.
The sound is fresh, sinister and dystopian. With each release, it fleshes it out, carefully carving out a distinct style, all the while leaving us asking, who is 1788-L?

RL Grime and graves’ new music video was directed by Arnaud Bresson.
It’s been the better part of a month since RL Grime inaugurated his Sable Valley imprint with a graves collaboration titled “Arcus.” Today, the American producer uploaded a subversive music video for the single on which Arnaud Bresson is credited as director.
The story-driven sequence of chilling clips depicts an urban gathering of sorts in which participants perform seemingly fantastic feats. Synced to the somber melodies of “Arcus,” Bresson’s stripped-down style of cinematography serves as an unexpected yet fitting visual accompaniment.
RL Grime (real name Henry Alfred Steinway) released a debut EP titled Grapes via WeDidIt in 2012. His work with graves (real name Christian Mochizuki) is by no means his highest-profile collaboration of early 2019. Earlier in the month, he and Alison Wonderland revealed that they’ve been spending time together in the studio.

Dirtybird Campout has quickly become a staple among house heads.
Entering its fourth year, Dirtybird Campout has quickly become a staple in emerging the West Coast house scene. Claude VonStroke and the entire Dirtybird Family have worked extremely hard to build the brand that house heads know and love. The label has reached immense success across the globe, with birds flocking from all over the country, some even as far as Germany and Canada to join their leader in arms Mr. VonStroke for three days filled with fun along the water.
About 7,000 festival goers arrived in Modesto, CA on October 5th. They quickly unpacked their bags and set up camp for the weekend so they could commence with the three-day party as soon as physically possible. By 12:00 PM, attendees were already making their way to the stages, faces full of smiles and ready to begin dancing into the night.
This year, Dirtybird Campout had two main stages. The Birdhouse featured most of the house and techno acts. The Bass Lodge housed the dubstep, drum and bass, breakbeat, and hip-hop artists. I was a bit disappointed that the locations of the stages were not reversed due to the fact that the birdhouse was placed on a cement-filled parking lot while the bass lodge was on a dirt surface. Besides this, I believe the stages were set up extremely well in terms of their appearance. The speakers, however, were a bit quieter than my liking at times during the day but this had close to zero effect on how much fun I had at the festival. On top of this, the Bass Lodge was home to the nightly silent disco that commenced from 2:00 AM until about 5:00 AM for each night of the weekend, a much-needed amenity for the late-night birds.
I cannot recall the names of the food vendors but a handful of them looked familiar to the ones I found at Lightning in a Bottle in 2017. On Friday, I mostly ate food that was brought from home but decided to break the bank on Saturday morning and try something new. I ended up spending $18 at the falafel/shawarma truck for a dish that would probably have cost half that amount in the city. Due to my lack of other options, I couldn’t really complain and the food ended up being quite replenishing. For the rest of the weekend, I decided to stick with the pizza stand that sold slices for around $6 and whole pizzas for about $24.
Now for the fun stuff. I’ve been lucky enough to have attended more Dirtybird events than I can count on both hands – and Campout 2018 topped them all. Three whole days packed with some of the best talent the house and techno world has to offer is really quite hard to argue with. Mikey Lion and Sacha Robotti of Desert Hearts also had a killer B2B on Friday night. Claude VonStroke and the legend himself, Justin Martin had amazing sets as always. I was also enthralled by the German techno DJ Roman Flugel who threw down an enchanting set on Saturday night. On top of the actual lineup, renegades featured around the festival were a blessing and a curse. Every night at 2:00 AM after the main stage shut down, I would be drawn into various campsites for more fun even though I was exhausted from the already eventful day. Some of these renegades featured artists such as Ardalan, Chris Lake and more. On top of the various renegades, the silent disco gave attendees three separate channels to choose from on the bass lodge stage after 2AM. These channels ranged from downtempo to house and techno alike.
Like most of the other camping festivals on the West Coast, the crowd is what makes the festival. Everywhere around people were dressed their best, smiles all around with random birdies shouting compliments at each other as they passed by. Everyone I met there made me fall in love with the Dirtybird family even more. The whole festival radiated a family vibe that is unmatched by other independent labels. The Dirtybird crew does a stellar job at making everyone feel at home, loved and accepted – and I will most definitely be returning to Campout next year.

In addition to their headlining spot, Pendulum may have new music and a world tour on the way.
After the tragic passing of Keith Flint earlier this month, fans were left wondering who would take the place of his legendary group, The Prodigy, at South West Four 2019 in London. It’s now known that the iconic drum and bass group Pendulum will close out the last day of the festival.
The band will debut their new live show, Trinity, and will feature members Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen and Paul “El Hornet” Harding together for the trio’s first performance in quite some time.
The festival’s official blog seemingly spilled the beans on some more information about the band’s next steps. They state that their new live performance will include “brand new Pendulum music from their forthcoming EP series and album.” In addition to the potential new album, the festival’s organizers stated that the band will embark on the Trinity World Tour in 2019 and 2020.
If the aforementioned information is correct, the new album would mark their first studio album since the release of Immersion in 2010.
Back in June of 2018, the band released their remix album The Reworks which featured remixes of a variety of Pendulum tracks by artists like Skrillex, Noisia, Moby, Knife Party and more.
South West Four 2019 will take place September 24th and 25th at Clapham Common in London. Tickets are on sale now and you can buy them here.
