After Five Years of Anonymity, 1788-L Has Revealed His Face

As artificial intelligence and machine learning dig its claws into the music industry, 1788-L, the famed automaton DJ, has ironically been humanized.

It's been over five years since the elusive 1788-L burst onto the electronic music scene with 2018's debut release, "Replica." His metallic, ferocious sound was an instant hit and he quickly became an in-demand producer, releasing official remixes for RL Grime, The Glitch Mob and more.

But with a cryptic backstory veiled in anonymity, fans knew little about the cybernetic producer behind the faceless project—until today, when 1788-L shared an unmasked photo and revealed his face.

What role the reveal plays for the 1788-L project moving forward remains to be seen. But it's worth nothing that he recently wiped his Instagram account and shared a teaser with the caption, "IT BEGINS."
