GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 29: FREEMAN



US researcher, author, lecturer, film-maker and radio host Freeman checks in for this volume. Considered an expert in occult symbolism and ancient civilizations, Freeman is said to 'start where Alex Jones leaves off'!  

In this far-reaching conversation, we start out discussing how Freeman predicted the 9/11 false flag terror event in the years leading up to 2001, and also prophesied the circumstances in which George W Bush and Barack Obama would be moved into office. 

With this podcast being recorded 50 years almost to the minute after the assassination of President John F Kennedy, Freeman reveals which contemporary Hollywood star's father may have fired the fatal bullet, and some other unexplained stuff about that fateful day in 1963.

Turning to the world of entertainment, Freeman gives his take on the infamous Miley Cyrus performance at the recent VMAs, suggesting her bizarre act was part of a symbolic ritual designed to evoke off-world entities, in particular the goddess Kali. We also discuss Robin Thicke's involvement as a possible inititiation routine.

THE SOUND OF FREEDOM - COMING THIS EVENING TO THE PEOPLE'S VOICE!



Today's the day for the first instalment of my new show, The Sound Of Freedom, on The People's Voice. It streams from 7 to 9pm GMT, (and repeated between 2 and 4am for the benefit of the US crowd.) If you miss it, I'll be posting the download links and full playlist on my Soundcloud page tomorrow.

With the proliferation of mind-numbing, spirit-crushing brain candy being constantly peddled by the mainstream, it's easy to forget that real music is still being made, by credible artists, with intelligence, insight and creativity. TSOF will be where to catch the very best of it, as an uplifting antidote.  The show's mission is to offer a selection of music, both old and new, whose lyrics address the many subject areas which the People's Voice will be covering. These will range from the conspiratorial and confrontational, through to the spiritual, esoteric and inspirational - plus all points in between!  

The music will be mainly hip hop-based, but with some reggae and soulful grooves, and the occasional journey into other styles. A pivotal feature will be The Truth Trip, which each week will re-visit three tunes from decades past, with the artists of the day articulating ideas that are just as relevant now as they were back when they were recorded - and sometimes moreso!

Appropriate music-makers are very welcome to send in any music they feel might be appropriate for the show to mark@markdevlin.co.uk

The People's Voice is a 24-hour non-profit on-line TV and radio network, spearheaded by David Icke, and due for global launch on 25th November. The aim is to bring the public news, information, views, opinion and entertainment that won't be found anywhere else all in one place, and certainly not in the mainstream media. With no corporate affiliations, it undertakes to offer truthful perspective on subjects ranging from current affairs, to alternative health issues, to matters of spirituality and the true nature of reality.

TALES FROM THE FLIPSIDE: EXPLODING THE MYTH OF THE SUPERSTAR DJ LIFESTYLE!




It's the time of year when the radio stations and shopping malls wheel out the usual tired old offerings from Slade, Wizzard, Shakin' Stevens et al, and when I wheel out the usual tired old commercial for my book Tales From The Flipside. There's a bit of blurb below for anyone new to it, (the ideal Christmas present for any aspiring DJ!) and the link to order a copy is right here.

TALES FROM THE FLIPSIDE
Exploding the myth of the DJ lifestyle.

They say DJs are the new pop stars. It may be true of the elite, the chosen few at the top of the tree. It’s private jets, hotel suites, champagne, fame and fortune all the way. But for every Paul Oakenfold or Fatboy Slim, there are thousands of regular, unfamiliar DJs grafting away, and the reality of their daily situations can be very different!

In this honest, witty, and no-holds-barred expose into the darker side of the nightlife world, Mark Devlin gives an insider’s account of the problems, challenges, and just plain bizarre situations the average ‘league two’ DJ has to face. This is the untold and unseen side of DJ lifestyles, and the truth is often very different to the common perception!

GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 28: MARK PASSIO





In possibly the most challenging and thought-provoking GV yet, Mark Devlin chats to Mark Passio, a US teacher and lecturer who started out as a practitionier in Anton La Vey's Church Of Satan. Having acquired much knowledge of the workings of the universe, the appeal of the satanists' ego-driven worldview waned and Mark decided to go over to the light side and to use his knowledge to awaken humanity from its long-imposed spiritual slavery to a force of evil. He explains how, far from trying to stop him, his former colleagues merely laughed at what they saw as an exercise in futility. 

In many ways, he says, they had a point, since the awakening of human consciousness spoken of by so many New Age gurus is a gross exaggeration, as the masses slumber on. Despite this, he maintains, those who have undergone a conscious awakening have a responsibility to share their knowledge with others as far as is practical, and he outlines his 'tough love' approach to this. 

The results of the ripples spread by this current age will be felt way into the future, he argues, and so it's still vitally important to do what needs to be done, even in spite of enormous obstacles. Mark outlines the way Natural Law works, and how our free will ties into that, leaving the power to shape the kind of reality we want to experience with us alone.

GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 27: NEIL SANDERS





Neil Sanders is a British author, researcher, psychologist and qualified hypnotherapist, whose specialist area is exposing mass mind control techniques. For this podcast, he chats with Mark Devlin about how all of us are subject to having our perceptions shaped and moulded for us on a subliminal level, regardless of how sharp or 'immune' we might consider ourselves to be. Awareness of the techniques used, however, are the key to breaking free from the programming and truly thinking for yourself.

Neil cites many examples of how mass mind control is used in marketing and entertainment - particularly the music industry, and specifically the hip-hop genre. Other areas discussed in this far-reaching conversation include the CIA's MK Ultra programme, Edward Bernays and Walter Lipman, false versions of history, The Tavistock Institute, predictive programming, hypnotism, and many others.

MD'S DIARY BLOG, OCTOBER '13



October turned out to be a grim month on the radio front. Aside from the final death throes of London's Choice FM as it was fully absorbed into Capital Xtra (which Ewen Ramsbottom goes into in this Black Sheep Mag Hoof To The Head ) the news came on Wednesday 2nd that OX105FM had gone out of business. There were many factors at work, including economics and background politics. Either way, it was a big disappointment, as the station had great potential, and the 25 or so of us specialist DJs all lost our radio outlet overnight. I greatly enjoyed presenting my Sound Of Now show on Saturday evenings for a year and a half. 

On a brighter note, the stage is all set for the launch of The People's Voice on-line TV and radio network on 18th November. TPV is going to totally switch up the media game by offering news, current affairs and artistic stuff, only with added truth and integrity (!) and the atmosphere is tingling with anticipation as the countdown continues. I feel very privileged to be presenting a weekly two-hour showcase of conscious music, on a show by the name of The Sound Of Freedom. Keep checking this site for much more information on that front in due course.

On Saturday 5th, I called into TPV's HQ in Wembley to meet the team, and stuck around for a open day session, where a bunch of volunteers discussed the possibility of hosting their own phone-in show. My mate Bob 'Insidejob' Truther was in attendance, though minus his famous Disco Bike on this occasion. The hours flew by, leaving me just enough time to shoot back up the M40 to pick up my tunes and grab some food, then zoom straight back to London for a gig that night at Zefi bar and restaurant in Chelsea. It was the sort of spot where celebs and socialites hang out. I didn't recognise any, but wasn't greatly bothered. I returned to Zefi for another session at the end of the month.


A diverse weekend of movements and mismatched sleep patterns kicked off on Friday 11th as I took a rain-soaked drive deep into London. The journey from Oxfordshire to the West of the Capital took less time than the plod through town to Dalston, EC2, where I was spinning that night. DJ MP Marcus, previously of The Pesky Kids, had combined with DJ/ MC Rico, host of the long-running Soul Train nights in Prague, to bring a taste of those events to London. It took place at the undergound ReRoot Club, which had all the feel of an intimate party session. The all-star DJ cast included Big Twist, former Pesky Kid Mr. Penfold, and Marco De La Vega over from France. As such, I only played for an hour. The vibes were shaping up very nicely as I exited.

The early zoom home allowed for a measly two hours of sleep before heading out again to Luton Airport, for an early flight to Latvia, kicking off a three-day overseas jaunt. Arriving at 1pm, I headed straight to the Old Riga Palace Hotel. It comes highly recommended for anyone visiting, offering boutique-style comfort and fashion, with wi-fi, air con, a great breakfast, central location and amazing rates. (No, I'm not on commission, but wish I was.) Some more sleep took priority, before linking for a bite to eat and catch-up with Latvia's finest and a good friend of mine, DJ Aiva. Aiva's recently become a dad, so some swapping of parental tips and anecdotes punctuated an otherwise music-based conversation!


As Aiva departed for an out-of-town gig, I made my way to the Madhouse venue for a late set starting at 1.30am. The music policy was pretty much anything-goes, but sadly the venue wasn't well-attended and closed at 5 - very early by European standards. You win some, you lose some.


I was out the door at 10am on Sunday, bracing myself for what turned out to be a very uncomfortable coach trip to the Lithuanian capital Vilnius. The Eurolines bus had no wi-fi, power points or catering, and I was seated next to a couple of stocky, snoring middle aged Latvian skinheads who reeked of alcohol, nicotine, garlic, BO and fart in equal measure. Lucky me. To make matters worse the coach rolled into Vilnius late enough o miss my bus connection on to the airport. A frantic dash later, and I just made my flight with seconds to spare.


I was travelling on to Ukraine for my first taste of Kiev, (although, being vegetarian, not the chicken,) a place I'd long wanted to visit. First impressions on the bus in from Borispol Airport were of a huge, sprawling metropolis, made all the more confusing by the signs utilising the Cyrillic alphabet, and hardly anyone speaking English, (not that I encountered, at least.) I got very lost trying to find my hotel, eventually managing via some primal map reading and spatial ability, and celebrated by going out for a meal and a beer, followed by the best night's sleep I've had in weeks.


Some sightseeing was on the agenda the following day, along with a lunchtime link-up with Bard, proprietor of Kiev's Xlib Club, to discuss a future possible link. Kiev's large enough to justify two airports, and I flew home from the smaller, Zhulyany.

The Good Vibrations podcast series has continued this month with a couple of instalments that I greatly enjoyed. Volumes 25 and 26 are a two-parter with fellow DJ Matt Sergiou, who runs the Conspiro Media blog site. Matt gets into some of the stranger and more intriguing aspects of the music industry, suggesting the influence of the Hidden Hand. Pink Floyd, the Laurel Canyon commune of California, Jay Electronica and Lauryn Hill get discussed this time round. Volume 27 is with the brilliant Neil Sanders, who gets into the subject of mass mind control through the media, and particularly the music business. I recommend a listen to both by anyone who likes to apply critical thought to what's presented to them, and both can be heard or downloaded from:





Now that our four-year-old Zaina has started at big school, we're restricted to going away during scheduled school holidays only, so the Devlins headed away for the Half Term break to a Haven holiday park near Chichester, staying in a caravan. The old joke about the kids having a holiday and Mum & Dad coming along too very much applied.

... and that was October.
