The enigma of Prince; An in-depth pod-cast discussion on the esoteric aspects of the music-star’s life and career, as well as his anti-establishment views, and his untimely passing…


Not long after the sad passing of Rock/Pop legend, Prince last week, I (that is, me – Matt Sergiou) received an e-mail from Mark Devlin, the DJ/presenter and premier public-speaker on all manner of subjects linked to the dark, occult workings of the music-industry. He asked me if I’d be at all interested in guesting on a hastily-arranged volume of his ‘Good Vibrations’ series of pod-casts, in response to the news of the famous musician’s departure. Accepting his kind offer, we eventually hooked-up via the wonders of ‘Skype’ not long later on April 25th – just four days after reports first broke of Prince’s exit. Joining us in what’s actually a three-way conversation and trade-of-thoughts is none other than well-renowned, veteran researcher, Freeman. He gives us his unique take on the music-star’s life and passing based on his famed knowledge of the occult and arcane. For example, he notes the esoteric and ritualistic significance of purple, a colour that’s synonymous with the musician thanks in large part, of course, to ‘Purple Rain,’ the album and movie that catapulted him into Pop superstardom in 1984. Is this relevant? Well – yes, it certainly could be when you take into account what’s discussed in the pod-cast with regards to the ‘Typhonian Trilogy,’ a series of books by Kenneth Grant, the now-deceased but former high-ranking figure within the ‘O.T.O.’ (‘Ordo Templi Orientis’), the occult order which was once spearheaded by perhaps its most infamous of members, Aleister Crowley, a man who – as you’ll no doubt be aware – was an influence on a number of famous music-stars including, most notably, Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page, and the very-recently departed David Bowie.

MD & Freeman

Freeman & Mark Devlin

In Freeman’s words, “Typhon is the Lord of the Abyss. He is Leviathan, he is all those things inside the Bible – of what lives in the abyss… In the abyss are the fallen angels, the excrement… and Typhon.” If you’re interested to learn how this might connect in some relevant form to the passing of Prince – the oft dubbed, ‘Purple One,’ do please listen to the pod-cast. You most probably won’t be surprised to discover upon doing so that the subject of Typhon and Grant’s trilogies are mentioned in the same breath as – in the words of Freeman again – “blood sacrifice” and “high profile rituals.” This, of course, helps lend fuel to the possibility that the musician was the victim of a dark, ritualistic, sacrificial killing. This scenario is made all the more potent by the fact that his death was announced on the day of the Queen of England’s 90th birthday, which was, interestingly enough, apparently marked by tributes of a purple-coloured nature. We discuss this briefly in the pod-cast and also acknowledge that all of this has occurred during a time in the year where we were leading up to the much-dreaded festival of Beltane when, Freeman says, there’s “the blood sacrifice of the beast.” Furthermore, and as noted by countless researchers of an ‘Alternative’ nature over the years, he reminds us that “when we look to the dates… this April 19th to April 20th, 21st era in time-zone, there are so many seeming ritual sacrifices.”
With this in mind, it’s worth noting at this point that there’s mention during the pod-cast of the apparent contradictions in what we’re being told in the mainstream media with regards to the cause of Prince’s death and how he’s generally perceived to have lived his life. After all, as both Freeman and Mark point out, we’ve been led to believe over the years that the music-star was a health-conscious vegan, a non-drug user, a Jehovah’s Witness, and, I‘d like to add here, a tee-totaller apparently. But this doesn’t tally with the MSM’s reporting of his death which has so far presented us with a constantly-changing version of events, most of which have strongly suggested that he was battling illness or some form of issues connected to prescribed medication. Initially, and as Mark points out in the pod-cast with – I suspect – a tongue a little in cheek, we were told by the mainstream that “he just happened to collapse in an elevator after having the flu at the age of 57.” Since recording this pod-cast, the flu stories have been superseded by reports that he was a victim of AIDS no less. Of course, it’s still way too early in the day to be forming definite conclusions as to what may have contributed to Prince’s passing – indeed, as is the case throughout history when we look at the deaths of high-profile, famous individuals – we might never truly know. Be that as it may though, the MSM, with its dizzying and thus-far ever-escalating array of claims and reports will – as a result – have done little to dampen the suspicions of those of us who’re questioning the mainstream version of events and who are leaning toward the possibility that foul-play might very well have been the cause. Whether Prince met with a grisly, violent end in keeping with the occult, sacrificial practises that Freeman outlines, and/or if it was an evil, cynical manoeuvre on behalf of the corporate ‘Powers That Be’ to somehow claw back ownership of the musician’s lucrative master-tapes which he’d seized control of in 2014, is anyone’s guess at this stage. It’s no secret that he’d been involved in a monumental dispute with his former record company, ‘Warner Bros.,’ a spat which gained him a significant degree of infamy when, in the 1990s, he appeared in public with the word, ‘slave’ inscribed on his face and also changed his name to, Love Symbol Album (otherwise referred to as, ‘Symbol’). All of this is discussed during the pod-cast, as is his very vocal and very candid views on the nasty machinations of the music-industry.


The Love Symbol Album moniker is elaborated on in the pod-cast at some length, actually. We get the ‘Freeman perspective’ on the possible occult connotations attached to ‘the symbol’ which, in fact, was one of many alter-egos adopted by Prince during his illustrious career. I get into some of the details of this, putting forward the suggestion that what we might be dealing with here is yet another case in a long line of music-artists suffering from the effects of MK ULTRA/trauma-based mind-control. There’s certainly data available that hints at this. But then again, there’s also the possibility that these multiple personas were – in Mark’s words – “some kind of demonic possession”?

Paisley Park Studio Complex Pyramids

As discussed in the pod-cast, glass pyramids on the roof of Prince’s Paisley Park studio-complex. Notice the one with the cap-stone? The musician is known to have expressed an interest in Egyptian history.

During the pod-cast, we also focus very briefly on the days directly leading up to the news breaking of Prince’s death, when there were highly suggestive indications from him and his camp that they/he somehow knew what was coming. Yet another intriguing puzzle there. What we can be sure of is this though: He was a one-of-a-kind. I mean – just one example – how many Pop superstars do you recall who have openly discussed the issue of chemtrails? Here’s the musician in an interview from a few years back (from 2011, if I’m not mistaken?)…


In the three-way pod-cast, which was originally released online on April 26th, we also raise the issue of 9/11, given that it has specific relevance to Prince. Plus, Freeman waxes lyrical on the thematic, occultic parallels that can be drawn from other high-profile artists such as Katy Perry, and Madonna – the last-surviving of the four ultimate music superstars of the 1980s.

In discussion: The ‘Paul Is Dead’ theory…

Paul McCartney split

Back in June this year, Mark Devlin – the UK’s leading speaker on the occult/conspiratorial elements within the entertainment industry – published a pod-cast in which he chats with prominent researcher, Tina Foster of ‘Plastic Macca,‘ the blog which looks into evidence of Paul McCartney’s alleged ‘death’ in 1966. There’s also contributions during the conversation from ’Conspiro Media’ – or, in other words – me; Matt Sergiou.

If you choose to take a listen to the pod-cast (available below), you’ll hear Tina talking us through many of the ‘clues’ alluding to this decades-old theory and that are said to be found in occult form on Beatles and solo McCartney album and single covers, and more blatantly in sound via backwards messages on songs. She also cites a number of physical differences between the ‘real’ Paul and the ‘impostor’ Paul (A.K.A. ‘Faul’) that she says can be seen when comparing photographs and footage prior to 1966 and after, when he was said to have been replaced. She highlights the research of two Italians, Francesco Gavazzeni and known forensic pathologist, Gabriella Carlesi who together have studied the facial features of the pre and post-’death’ McCartney and concluded that there is indeed a definite difference between the two that cannot be dismissed. Then there’s the apparent anomalies surrounding the long-contested paternity battle between the former Beatle and a German woman who claims she gave birth to their daughter in the early 1960s. In 1984, Erika Hubers alleged that a blood-sample taken from McCartney for examination in a court-case that she launched against him at the time to prove he was the father was not in fact McCartney’s but an impostor’s. Indeed, during the pod-cast, Tina talks about the use of decoys and doubles in the ‘Paul Is Dead’ (‘P.I.D.‘) conspiracy. She also revisits the comments made in 2007 by Heather Mills who told the world’s media that she’d discovered a ‘terrible secret’ about Paul her then soon-to-be ex-husband.
The circumstances surrounding the ‘death’ of McCartney in ‘66 are discussed during the pod-cast too. Tina doesn’t subscribe to the widely-cited claim that the music-legend died as a result of a car accident. She’s of the view that he was ‘bumped-off’ by the Powers That Be and then replaced by a more NWO-friendly version, one perhaps that wouldn’t question the globalist agenda to corrupt the world’s youth, most notably in the promotion of widespread drug-use during the late 1960s.

Personally, I’ve remained largely sceptical of P.I.D. However, my mind is open and in no way dismissive towards the theory in principle. As I say during the pod-cast; although there isn’t enough evidence on offer to convince me that Paul is most definitely dead, I do feel there’s plenty of signs to indicate that “something untoward” is going on (… smoke, but not necessarily a fire as such). I expressed my thoughts on this (to some extent) in the closing paragraphs of an article on ’Conspiro Media’ back in May 2012:

During the pod-cast, I raise some questions that I and possibly others who’re sceptical towards P.I.D. have posed over the years, such as; how is it that not one member of the ‘original’ Paul’s family back in Liverpool have ever come out publicly to expose the fraud? Surely someone in the McCartney clan has noted the change in appearance, if not in personality? Actually, Tina, Mark and I are in agreement when it comes to the ex-Beatle’s behaviour in recent years, behaviour that’s resulted in him becoming a shoulder-rubber with the so-called ‘elites’ in politics and royalty, and – so it would appear – an advocate of their dark agenda also. The pod-cast ends with us speculating as to whether the secret to this decades-old mystery will ever be revealed, or will it remain a theory that goes with everyone to their graves?

‘Conspiro Media’ is picking up more ‘Good Vibrations’…

Earlier in 2013, the DJ, author, and lecturer, Mark Devlin contacted ‘Conspiro Media’ to ask me – Matt Sergiou – if I’d be at all interested in appearing as a guest on his highly popular ‘Good Vibrations’ pod-casts. This eventually resulted in a two-part interview.

In the first instalment, I looked back at the life and times of Pink Floyd and the stories of Syd Barrett’s apparent descent into madness and the possibility he might’ve been a victim of MK ULTRA / Mind-Control as well as Roger Waters’ recent very public stand against Zionism. I also turned my attention to the suspicious goings-on at Laurel Canyon, the LA neighbourhood where well-known music-stars of the so-called late ‘60s ‘counter-culture’ era originated from – and many of whom hailed from backgrounds in the military and/or intelligence services.

If you haven’t yet heard this interview (which was posted here earlier this year), you can catch up with it in the link below:

And now, here’s the second instalment of the pod-cast in which I talk about the 28-year relationship between Jazz legend, Thelonius Monk and Pannonica Rothschild, the heiress of the Illuminati banking dynasty who effectively turned her back on it and a life of luxury and glamour to be at his side.

We also bring this saga right up to date to examine the details behind her great-niece, Kate, whose marriage to Ben Goldsmith – the son of wealthy financier, Sir James Goldsmith – hit the rocks amidst reports she was romantically involved with American rapper, Jay Electronica who she represents in the UK through her company, ’Roundtable Records.’ I explored this in a 2012 article titled, ‘The Rothschilds’ Musical Legacy – Part One: The Same Old Song.’ You can read that here:

During the interview (which was recorded in October 2013), I talk about some of the new information I’ve uncovered since that article was published, most notably information that challenges Jay’s claims that he comes from the rough side of the tracks.

There are also questions surrounding Jay’s music and who actually wrote it. Furthermore, I go into the reasons why there hasn’t been a follow-up to my 2012 article… yet!

Don’t forget, you can hear Mark Devlin – the UK’s leading speaker on the dark, malevolent workings of the music-industry – every Saturday night on David Icke’s new channel, ‘The People’s Voice,’ where he showcases some of the more socially and spiritually-conscious Hip Hop, R&B, and Reggae tracks:

‘Conspiro Media’ is picking up ‘Good Vibrations’…

This site has always sought to incorporate the work of others within the so-called ’Alternative community’ who, to varying degrees, have investigated the conspiratorial and/or esoteric/occult elements within music, movies, TV and other forms of entertainment. In past posts – via ‘ConspiroTV’ – we’ve had the pleasure of hearing the views of respected experts and authors such as veteran symbologist and Beatles ‘insider,’ Robert Richard Hieronimus Ph.D., and also, Neil Sanders, perhaps the UK‘s foremost researcher in the history of Mind-Control/MK ULTRA and mass-media manipulation. We’ve also been keen to feature items exclusive to other sites such as ‘Red Ice Radio’ host Henrik Palmgren’s interviews with Hollywood actress, Sean Young about her ‘awakening,’ and writer and film-maker, Jay Weidner on his famed occult interpretations of Stanley Kubrick‘s work. Furthermore, when it‘s sister-site, ‘Radio 3Fourteen’ produced a show made up entirely of socially and cosmically conscious contemporary music acts, we added it as a link here. Actually, in all honesty, this blog hasn’t dedicated anywhere near enough attention on some of the lesser-known but talented artists out there making these kinds of tracks. This is something that we’ll (that is, I’ll) have to address in future. However, there is one website in particular that does focus on this. It’s run by veteran club/radio DJ, author and journalist, Mark Devlin. markdevlin Since 2010, when he first began to question the nature of reality, consciousness, and the ’3D world’ around him, Mark has built up a reputation as one of the prominent figures actively shining a light on the dark, twisted machinations of the music-industry. His insights are especially unique (as well as valuable) when considering his background; Predominantly specialising in his love of R&B, Reggae, Soul, Funk, Disco, Soulful House, and Hip Hop (by “Hip Hop” I mean Real Hip Hop as opposed to the crap available in the mainstream), he’s ripped up the decks in over forty countries and hosted numerous radio-shows (far too many to note here). In November, he’ll be bringing his brand of socially-conscious and uplifting flavas to David Icke’s new channel, ‘The People’s Voice’ hosting a once-weekly programme. In a career spanning almost a quarter of a century, he’s also contributed to leading music magazines/portals including the legendary ‘Blues & Soul,’ and ‘Black Sheep Mag’ which he’s managing editor of. Seeking to explore beyond the confines of the mainstream however, he first appeared on ‘SoundCloud’ last year with his ‘Good Vibrations’ pod-casts, many of which delve into the music-industry ‘conspiracy.’ Drawing from his contacts inside the business, he’s interviewed DJs, film-makers, and producers about their own perspectives on this ongoing global Agenda as well as its effects on humanity. Obviously, he’s chatted with musicians too and, as noted earlier, showcased their tracks, offering the listener a refreshing Alternative to the moronic, mind-controlling banality churned out by the mass-media. Some of his guests have included:

Hailing from Bristol but now residing in Paris, Steve turned his back on a business-based career in the UK for a life making music across the channel. artworks-000031347233-q2qv7p-t200x200During his chat with Mark, he casts a critical eye over Jay-Z, Michael Jackson, and Oprah Winfrey. He also has some particularly strong words to direct against Snoop Dogg A.K.A. Snoop Lion. This leads him onto the subject of Jamaican culture/Rastafarianism and his perception of God. You can also hear his song, ‘Living with the Devil’ which takes aim at the so-called “elites” such as the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers who he refers to in his interview.

Influenced by Reggae and Ska at a young age, UK-based singer, songwriter, and piano-player, Imani Hekima first made his mark as a musician during the 1980s in, Spectre, a band that supported Aswad, and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry during it‘s time.artworks-000025408596-r8zu9m-t200x200 In his chat with Mark, he gives us his take on the current sorry state of the music-scene and the lack of uplifting songs available. Now established as a solo artist, he also shares his thoughts on some tracks he‘s written and recorded; ‘Just Beneath the Skin’ addresses the projected micro-chipping agenda, ‘Nothing’s What It Seems’ deals with false-flag events and was penned directly after one such incident, namely, 7/7, and ‘Robots Rebellion’ takes its inspiration from the likewise titled David Icke book from 1994.

Mark chats to the rapper who forms one half of, Dead Prez, the politically/socially-charged Hip Hop duo who’ve never been afraid to tell it like it really is since first breaking through in the 1990s. artworks-000019603794-31ziz0-t200x200M-1 discusses some of the ingredients that go in to creating such conscious music and what he aims to deliver now and in the future. With regards to acts that neglect to address the really important issues in life, he asks, “are you an artist or” a “drone” churning out “elevator music” to “pacify the audiences with?“ However, he also points out that “there’s money to be made from revolutionary music” citing Public Enemy and Bob Marley as two notable examples.

artworks-000017667075-pfgtcx-t200x200First making a name for herself with the R&B/Garage floor-filler, ’What’s It Gonna Be’ at the turn of the millennium, singer, Nesha later went on to become a presenter on the BBC’s radio-station, 1-Xtra. However, she eventually parted company with the corporation somewhat disillusioned with what she witnessed sensing that there was “an agenda” at play. She talks to Mark about what went on there as well as sharing her interesting and perceptive views on the malevolent music-industry today and its effect on audiences.

Kit Glover A.K.A. Long Lastin’ joins Mark for two pod-cast chats. The veteran Hip Hop producer shares his unique insights on the music-industry’s dark side and also on matters of a more spiritual, esoteric, and uplifting nature. Born in London, the son of hippy parents, his father was the photographer for the book, ‘The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail.’ In fact he remembers the authors visiting his childhood home and writing some of it there.artworks-000058985249-cmagdg-t200x200 Initially making a name for himself as far back as the early-to-mid-‘80s as a professional break-dancer, Long Lastin’ later turned his hand to production and was almost instantly sought after by the major players in the music biz. However, disillusioned with what he witnessed upon entering this world, he pretty much turned his back on it from day one. Now recording independently, he talks about his forthcoming album which’ll concentrate on subjects such as HAARP as well as ancient alien theories. The aim?… to alert the less aware of us in society to important but suppressed knowledge and areas of research.

Musician and film-maker, Mel Bell-Grey pulls no punches, taking on a vast range of subjects during his pod-chat with Mark.artworks-000051377878-wqcfg0-t200x200 Hailing from Tottenham in North London, he suffered both physical and mental abuse at the hands of his strictly Christian parents. Although he grew up in a household where money most certainly wasn’t in easy supply, it shocked him in later years to discover that his mother’s father was the Deputy Prime Minister of Jamaica. During the pod-cast, he also lets rip on matters of a global/social nature, such as the subjugation of Black people, and the suppression of their culture and history, as well as his personal firsthand take on the harsh realities of London city life. Naturally, the subject of music also pops up; He talks about his early years mingling and rubbing shoulders with industry bigwigs and witnessing with his own eyes the corrupt nature of the business which inevitably caused him to turn his back on it and go independent. Now based in Hawaii, you can find out more about his music at, ‘’ He also helps to run the film/video production-house, ‘’.

Both DJ Storm and Double L noticed early on in their lives that something wasn’t quite right with the world.artworks-000028924202-l6kokv-t200x200 Indeed, during the ‘90s, Stormski launched a magazine also available on the internet titled, ‘Hidden Agenda.’ During the interview, they discuss many subjects connected to the music conspiracy, including the use of occult symbols in Pop videos and concerts, MK’ed artists, and Jay-Z’s negative impact on Hip Hop. From a firsthand perspective, they bemoan the decline of club culture claiming that DJs are now forced to pander to the demands of brainwashed crowds who won’t open themselves up to any exciting new music that isn’t linked to the mainstream. They also address the attitudes of sceptics towards those of us who question everything.

Justin Wiseup, and Hip Hop artist turned writer/researcher, Marcello Assini talk to Mark about all manner of things connected to life, human consciousness, and reality itself. Channelling, meditation, spirituality, ancient wisdom, crop circles, UFOs, ETs, occult rituals, and Predictive Programming are just some of the topics discussed. They also advise us on how we can take control of our lives for the better, and their message is simple: Don’t fall prey to fear, be yourself, like yourself and follow your passion (without harming others of course).

American researcher, author, film-maker, and musician, Lenon Honor is the man who alerted us to ‘Rain Man,’ the demonic entity which has manifested itself in a number of R&B/Rap tracks and videos over the years. Indeed, although he investigates many facets of ‘the conspiracy’ from geo-politics, to Mind-Control, and environmental issues (to name a few) he’s perhaps particularly known for his occult interpretations of various topics linked to music and movies.artworks-000043236899-103ruz-t200x200 He joins Mark for two separate pod-casts. In the first, he hones in on Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)’ song and video which he claims actually deals with trans-humanism and has nothing to do with marriage as most listeners assume. This leads on to the subject of auto-tune and the increased dependency on digitisation instead of live instruments as well as the ‘robot-isation’ of art and humanity as a whole. He also provides a unique insight into how music as a form has been hijacked, and manipulated as a tool of control. The second pod-cast is almost entirely dedicated to his analysis of Kanye West’s latest album, ‘Yeezus.’

Based in Ireland, John Gibbons is a club/radio DJ, music producer and also the man behind the highly rated ‘Alchemy Radio’ which covers all manner of Alternative views and suppressed subject areas.artworks-000047893691-bn39kc-t200x200 He chats with Mark about EDM, the newly-coined term for Electronic Dance Music, it‘s possible role in the agenda and whether many of it‘s biggest names (i.e. Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Skrillex, e.t.c.) are involved in some shape or form. Hailing from a family background with connections to politics, he also talks about his early life, the events that led to his awakening, and the attitudes of nay-sayers and sceptics who look upon Truth-seekers as nothing more than ‘loony conspiracy theorists.’

As well as music, ‘Good Vibrations’ also plays host to a number of high-profile researchers, authors, and public speakers who investigate other areas within the wider Agenda including Ian R. Crane, Chris Spivey, Fritz Springmeier, Max Igan, Sonia Barrett, Andy Thomas, Ben Emelyn-Jones of HPANWO (‘Hospital Porters Against the New World Order‘), and David Icke who talks to Mark in two pod-casts, one of which in fact, is dedicated to his own take on the music business.

If you do decide to check out Mark’s ‘Good Vibrations,’ you’ll notice that his latest guest is Matt Sergiou A.K.A. ‘Conspiro Media’…. in other words… me! In the first of a two-part pod-cast, I talk about the notorious California neighbourhood known as Laurel Canyon where a staggering number of the musical heroes of the so-called 1960s ‘counter-culture’ movement hailed from. Tellingly, almost all were born into families with links to the CIA, or the US Military Industrial Complex, and there are some sinister connections with the grisly Manson Family murders of 1969 too. I also take a closer look at some of the esoteric elements of Pink Floyd and their music over the decades, including the strange business of front-man Syd Barrett’s apparent descent into madness and the possibility that he might have been the victim of MK ULTRA/Mind-Control.

If you’d like to hear more of what Mark himself has to say about the machinations of the music-industry, then be sure to listen to some of the radio-shows he’s guested on. You can check out recordings of these on his ‘Spreaker’ site. He’ll also be appearing at a number of events over the coming weeks and months where he’ll be addressing this huge topic; The first date is at ‘Truth Juice Birmingham’ on Tuesday October 22nd, followed by a talk in Manchester for ‘Wake Up Promotions’ on November 6th, and finally, ‘Truth Juice Liverpool’ on Wednesday December 2nd.
