053 – Svengalisghost

A few weeks back, Crack ran an in-depth profile on the L.I.E.S. label. As well as speaking to label boss Ron Morelli, we interviewed a few of the artists whose releases on the label make it what it is. Among these artists was Svengalisghost, and we were so impressed by the Chicago based artist’s eclectic influences and anecdotes of hallucinogenic drug experiments that we asked him to make us a Crackcast. You can read an extended Q&A with him here.

Svengalisghost (real name Marquis Cooper) provided us with this nervy selection ahead of the release of his debut LP as Shadowlust. This collaborative project – with 51717 on vocals – is out next week via L.I.E.S., and for the meantime you can stream the album in full over at Resident Advisor.
