For the coming Halloween festivus, countless dance music artists are giving their fans insatiable treats in the form of brand new music. REZZ and Malaa have released their long-awaited collaboration, Ravenscoon and RL GRIME have unleashed their respective Halloween mixtapes, and Crankdat has delivered his FEARWORLD EP, just to name a few.
Among them is Dallas-based Glitch maestro, 1788-L, whom has remained relatively quiet on the release front lately. That all comes to end on this Hallow’s Eve as 1788-L takes on the Halloween franchise’s trademark theme song. While the original theme in the string of Michael Myers-led films first arrived in 1978, the song still manages to resurface every time spooky season rolls around.
Forty-one years after the slasher film debuted, 1788-L’s very own spin on the haunting movie melody line packs a punch. He takes on the inevitable task of mastering a 5/4 falling time signature and inserts his computerized screeching synths on the builds. Then, just when listener thought their ears were safe, he drops them right into the chase scene of a Halloween scene, which is exactly how one would feel if they were in pursuit from Michael Myers himself.
