World Around Wednesdays is back. Our opening salvo is this raw & huge Louis Mackey single with production by beat wizard Dr. Quandary.


I sit in my chair, watch the flickering image
… sigils appear from distant transmissions emitted
to forming shapes with golden glowing flames
skulls encased, my walls and drapes are haunted by fallen angels
kettle pot hellish hot from the black furnace
gas spurts from cracked surfaces, take a huff, invade my lungs
drift from reality but hold my grip, slowly sip from my chalice piece
as we sit on a mountain peak
I’m no dumb magician … see I woke up with visions
with a way to manipulate the slow hum of physics
…the one and two, the subtle cues at low frequencies
I swear something through the smoke speaks to me
I can show a way to all but I won’t be staying long
like dull faded, gone lames hanging on to ancient songs
strangle game changers with cable cords
watch their face blanken straight from beige to orange
with commercial tracks, subversive raps, work my magic in
on dirty mattresses, Merlin’s manuscripts and burnt cadaver’s skin
evil laughin’, even cacklin’ at Catholic hymns
...Aleister Mackey, Magus shattering apparatuses
see the valleys and peaks out to the sea
I get power and peace from the mountains beneath my feet
you rap?... I make it rain, roll tumble and shake
like I summoned the Kraken from up from under the waves
