Having Your Music Play On Mind Coup Radio

By Mind Coup

Mind Coup Radio plays songs and shows two ways.  Our never resting DJ Auto is playing song playlists off our Mind Coup Radio server.  To get your music to DJ Auto, all you need to do is send your song mp3s via email (  Adding songs to your page will not get your music to DJ Auto. To help us ensure what songs you like played, and that we don't play any songs without permission, we require song files to be emailed to us with some kind of message asking us to play the tracks.  DJ Auto is great because it displays song and artist info across all our streaming platforms.  Mind Coup can be streamed through media players like quicktime realplayer winamp windows player and more.  Streaming from Mind Coup's website and facebook page are also options.  Our Sponsoring website may also have our player on their webpages as well.  Being that DJ Auto only communicates through zeros and ones, it's necessary to have song information properly labeled.  Digital song files should be labeled like this so the artist and song information is not lost in zero and one translation.

NAME           #           Track         Contributing Artist        Album

File Name  Track #   Song Name   Artist info                Album Name



The file name is the only file Mind Coup can change.  The Track # will not display.  The Track will display along with Contributing Artist in DJ Auto Display across our server.  If the artist has not labeled this info, DJ Auto will display the Name by default.  If the Name was Track and Contributing Artist with no added info, the song would display as Name.mp3 which is the computer file name. Artists are encouraged to send us a 20 second message MP3 telling people to check out ther member page and thanks for listing to MCR.  Track info for the message can be your band's website or other message. 


DJ Auto is not always on the job.  Live events, we queue songs from playlists or Member Profile pages.  Filling out profile info will allow Mind Coup to see if you'd like us to play music off your page from our show.  Mind Coup would introduce the song and artist before playing at live events.


If you have any questions feel free to comment.

Zaza la Terreur: Dynamism and Melodies

By Meta

Welcoming to Mind Coup Radio the fantastic Zaza la Terreur from Quebec City. She adds to the show an amazing power, and a rocking aspect. It is easy to get swept away in her music, just like with siren song.

M- Hi! Welcome to episode II of Mind Coup's Sirens, Selkies, and Songstresses. I am listening to your songs right now, the one called “Silence, je dors encore” and am loving the chord progressions, and the unexpected changes once in a while. It is obvious that you have learned classical music, in subtle ways. When did you start learning music, and when did you start writing it?

ZT- I started learning the piano at the age of 6, I took private lessons until the age of 14, and at that age, I started learning the guitar self-taught. I started writing a few little songs at the age of 10 years at the piano, without lyrics, and at the age of 15 years on guitar, with lyrics and more established structures. I discovered a new aspect of music that really appealed to me, I gradually abandoned the classical repertoire to dive into the world of alternative rock, it was a real revelation!

M- You have this amazing power to your voice, open tone and some natural growling that shows itself like a bow flinging an arrow. Warriorlike. émoticône smile Who are your influences, vocally, or who do you admire?

ZT- Vocally, I like the interpreters who live their songs, and offer beautiful textures in their voice. When I started singing, I focused only on the tonality and strength of my voice, and with time, I worked the subtlety and texture to better interpret and live the songs. I love singers like Dave Grohl, Kurt Cobain, Tom Yorke, Bono, Peter Gabriel, Bjork, Tori Amos, Micheal Stipe, Thomas Fersen, Bif Naked, Gwen Stefany, Jean Leloup, Beth Gibbons, PJ Harvey, John Lennon, and a lot more!

M- You are a fan of grunge.. what aspects of grunge do you like? What is it that draws you?

ZT- I like the instinctive aspects and energy of grunge, without artifice, the mixture of rought, but still beautiful melodies. My favorite grunge band is undoubtedly Nirvana, I learned to play guitar by learning their songs and their sound inspired me. Grunge rallied the fabulous power of punk, and some more catchy aspects of pop, it was the heartfelt cry of a generation, I was joined in my adolecence a lot, it literally changed my vision of music, and I still have a lot of fun to listen to today!

M-What is it like in Quebec City? Is there a lot going on in the music scene? How do you fit into it?

ZT- I have been active on the scene of Quebec for many years, but in recent years, I confess myself, I'm a bit disconnected from the stage and the local scene, I just wanted to work in my home studio to compose and record new material, and I prefer today make jams and recording with friends in my room with a good beer at friday night! I still like to do some shows occasionally, but I realize myself musically otherwise, it must be the thirties!!

M-You are also an author! What kinds of things do you write? Where can we find it?

ZT- I like to write about nature, I love spending time at my cabin in the woods, it's vital for me. I also write on the environment, time, perceptions, and sometimes, on social issues, including domestic violence, because I work in a shelter for women victims of domestic violence for over 10 years, their strength and courage inspire me a lot

M-What was your other band like? Lady Gonzalez..

ZT- Lady Gonzalez is a group that existed from 1998 to 2008. Initially, we were 3 girls who loved to play rock, and a fourth joined us. We started with songs from girls singers bands, and walked up one of over 80 songs repertoire. We played shows in all Quebec province, that was so great!! With years, we began to compose our own songs and included original material in our show. The public reaction was very welcoming, so we recorded an album, and have launched in 2007. Unfortunately, the band broke up a few months after launch..

M- Who are the supporting musicians in your band? Do you all have a great connection?

ZT- I'm fortunate to play with some very talented longtime friends with a professional background, we have a very beautiful connection. I had the chance to play with different musicians and bands in my career, and friendship has always been a key factor to keep the focus on fun and good musical chemistry!

M-Do you go on tour or play local venues?

ZT- No, not for now ... I recently refused a few gigs, but this is only a postponement! Thank you very much Meta, it was a pleasure to answer and practice my English, sorry again for the time, rock on!!

M- Thank You!

l'Octopus: Blissful Grooves & Bass Ingenuity

By Meta


Presenting the lovely Quebecoise, Claudia Gagne, a bass playing, grooving phenomenon with a songstress flair, and many tentacles.

M- Hello! Thanks so much for being on the second episode of sirens, Selkies, and Songstresses! You are one of three Quebecois on this show, apart from Mia Lotus and Zaza le Terreur. What part of Quebec are you from and what is the music scene like there?

CG-Hi! I'm very happy to participate to this radio show. Thanks again for the invitation :) . I live in down town Quebec City. There is a great musical scene in here! I am part of an artist collective called La Palette.

La Palette is an independent record label. There are really good artists and musicians that I admire a lot such as Jane Ehrhardt, Gab Paquet, Simon Paradis, Stéphane Robitaille and Pascal Pico Larouche. We do a lot of shows and cabarets together in Quebec City and Montreal. We also have a collective band with all the artists of La Palette : Le St-Jean-Baptiste-Country Club. It looks like a big party everytime we play together.. it's fun :)

There's is also a great project called Le Pantoum. It's kind of a concert hall /studio / loft/ repetition center /bring your own beer place. They do underground concerts with bands from everywhere in Canada, Europe, United States, and even Japan! It brings a nice vibe here in Quebec city.

M- That bass playing you do is pretty original and percussive. Have you played bass since you were very young?

CG- Thank you!:) No, I started playing bass when I was thirteen or fourteen years old. My brother, wich is older than me, is a bass player too, so he inspired me a lot. I started to play in rock bands when I was in high school. At cegep, I decided to study classical doublebass and to continue in jazz music at University Laval.

M- Who are your favourite bass players who have inspired you?

CG- It is difficult to say because I don't really have a favorite bass player. But when I started playing bass, I learned almost all the songs of Red Hot Chilli Peppers. So thanks to Flea! Now I know how to groove! :)

M- What kind of bass do you play? That is so neat.

CG- Thank you!! My acoustic bass is made by a Quebec luthier that is name Benoit Lauzé of Les Guitares Dièse. He is based in St-Jean-Port-Joli, a beautiful village. Sincerely, I tried a lot of these instruments, and the ones of M. Lauzé are awesome! He does acoustic guitars too! You can find him on Facebook as Les Guitares Dièse.

M- Wonderful!

I like the way you introduce your band members as tentacles. Where did the name l'Octopus come from?

CG- Haha this is funny.. well, many years ago, I watched a documentary about octopuses. I found that animal so intrigant, mysterious and incredible! It changes colors and shapes as it wants... When I started my solo project, I thought again about that documentary and I decided to go into that idea : the multitasking, the colors, etc..

Also, because the percussions takes a lot of place in the songs, I found that the word Oc-to-pus sounded very percussive. I added the `L'` to take off the english meaning ( I sing in french so that's also a good reason) and keep the sound/image of the word.

M- Who else plays with you?

CG- Last year, I introduced Hugo LeMalt to the project. He plays acoustic and electric guitar, and lapsteel too. He helps me a lot with his great musical ideas. I just added a new member in the band : my brother David Gagné. As I said earlier, my brother is also a bass player. As the third tentaclule of the Octopus, he his on the drum! In fact, the co-producer of the album Hugo Lebel thought about adding a small drum kit in the songs. The idea is too have a background beat that supports the songs, in the low range.

M- Can you tell us a little about the song Yukon?

CG- I wrote this song when I went to Yukon two years ago. I was Treeplanting in north BC all summer. Me and a friend decided to make a road trip in Yukon after de season. So that's what we did. It was so amazing! I just simply fell in love with the place. There is something so special.. the energy, the vibration.. I don't know. The song just came, like that, just like it existed already..

M- Do you tour around? What are your musical goals for the next few years?

CG- For now I don't do a lot of shows because I am working on my first album! It will be released on november 2015. I did a lot of shows around Quebec City in the past year. For now, I need to focus on the songs and the musical aspect of the project. I will start to tour after the release, in winter 2016 and summer for festivals.

M- How did you meet Mia Lotus? She is a fellow Selkie on the show.

CG- I never had the chance to meet Mia Lotus yet, but we talked a lot on facebook. I met her because she asked me to be part of her project as a doublebass player. Because I'm already involved in a lot of projects, I had to decline her offer. But we realised that we share lots and our passion for music is very similar. The drummer she plays with, Alex, is a friend of mine. We had a band many, many years ago... Like we say.. the world is very small (this is an expression we say a lot in french.. haha)

Danielle Miller- She is the Daisy

By Meta


Introducing the spellbinding and timeless Danielle Miller, a songstress from Southern California. She captures the essence of everything floral, ancient, and rooted. She can do everything, it seems, and with elegance.

M- Hi Danielle! You are a Very Interesting Person. You seem to capture some gorgeous themery in everything you do, from writing, to photography, to singing and music, to healing and general lifestyle. What I get from it is that you are at once very close to the earth, but also escalated into an airy, clear place of simple exaltation. There is a timeless or vintage quality about you. What do you think?

DM- Firstly, thank you kindly for your perspective and interest in what I have created. I think that you have summed it up very well and have absorbed the the meaning I have tried in so many forms to convey. Healing is the most important quality music has to offer in my opinion. That and inspiration.

M- What kinds of things did you love to do when you were little?

DM- I loved to imagine like any child. There was never a shortage of scenarios to dream into life. I was always pretending the car was a spaceship, talking to trees, being a mermaid. I loved exploring my neighborhood and being outdoors.

M- You remind me of those cool people in the 60s, in England. Steeleye Span is evoked, the ancient folk revival. Good quality earthy music, connected directly to the earth and the flowers. I can smell thyme when I hear your guitar playing. What kind of music do find the most inspiration from, and who moves you?

DM- That is a humongous compliment in my eyes! I love Steeleye Span and English folksingers. Traditional folk songs have captivated my heart such as Jean Ritchie and Shirley Collins. I love the simplicity, rawness, and beauty. I would say traditional folk music, and some modern folk music is my greatest inspiration. Joanna Newsom in an artist that moves me. Years ago when I first heard her I thought, "there is something about this", and I listened on repeat after that. Everything about her music moved me. The lengthiness of her songs, her poetic storytelling, the imagery, her unique and raw style of singing, and of course, the magical harp. It combines all the things I adore. I have a fondness for solo songwriters.

M- Shirley Collins was amazing! I love all that stuff too. This vintage-feeling (forgive me for the terminology) thing is so neat, from colouring photographs, to the musical style. What is it about the traditional folk music, the old-style ways that you love?

DM- I would have to say it is the timelessness. Some things in life are just timeless and no matter how I grow, or what changes come about, some things will remain golden to me. The old-style ways were the beginning, and everything evolved from that point and I treasure where it came from.

M- Do you have any other musical projects on the go? Do you play with others?

DM- I am mainly focused on my solo music because it is always a constant project. My boyfriend Tommy Cornell and I have some song ideas planned and hope to record an album together. Our goal is that he will accompany my solo songs by playing instruments like slide guitar, and possibly keys. He also has an alternative-grunge band called 'The Glass Daggers' that released an album this past year.


I was also a part of my brother's band in the past but have since moved onto my own music. Though, I am still a part of recordings singing harmony. He plays folk rock under the title 'In Autumn'


And lastly, I recorded a song with my sister-in law. We had a brief project called 'The Whispering Bells' that is currently on hold but I am sure we will make another appearance in the future.

M- Can you name three authors you admire?

DM- Hans Christian Andersen, Hellen KellerEmily Dickinson

M- Can you name three flowers that you love right now?

DM- Lavender, Queen Anne's Lace, Snapdragons.

M- Beautiful. Where and when do you feel the most at peace?

DM- I feel the most at peace whenever I am in nature it seems. My boyfriend and I love to just spend hours at a park or take a trip to the mountains and paint a picture, have a picnic and just observe and take in the beauty around us. There is something incredibly comforting about being somewhere beautiful with someone you love.

M- Can you tell us a bit about where you are living right now in California? The landscape and flora look absolutely dreamy.

DM- I live in Southern California. I just moved to Temecula which is known for their wine country area which is in fact lovely. Southern California is a dessert landscape primarily but there are many fields near where I live and there is also a lake. It is quite suburban in Southern California though there are hidden places filled with so much beauty and foliage if you just look for it. The ocean and mountains are also in our backyard so really, it isn't hard to find someplace dreamy.

M- I hear lots of people adore Temecula. It keeps coming up.

What kinds of music scenes are around you?

DM- This question makes me sad because there really aren't enough music scenes. Especially as far as venues go. The community for music is very much lacking here but the need for the community seems stronger than ever. I really hope something comes for those who yearn for that place. It is hard to say what style of music is the most "in" because the styles that my loved ones and I play are so out of character for where we live it seams. I hope I was able to answer this question. Haha.

M- I get you.. Times are changing everywhere, it seems.

Do you play live very often?

DM- I actually do not. I am trying to muster up the courage once again, especially since I have so many new songs to sing. I suffer from anxiety so I came to a point where even physically, it was too overwhelming. I want to defeat this though and overcome the fear so that I can share my music to others once again. When I was playing live, I felt very accepted, and it gave me so much purpose.

M- From what I have experienced, it appears that those who have anxiety for performing seem to really care about their music, it means something. I for one would love to see you perform. If you are ever on tour coming through BC, let us know. :-)

The Transcendental Kimberly Pierson

By Meta

Kimberly Pierson,  the force behind a wide range of experimental and soulful music, deep reaching photography, a poet, and an author of prose.  She is genuine, spiritual, and unafraid of shadows.  A perfect Selkie.

M- Hi Kimberly! We are so happy to have you on the Selkies show for episode II. You add a very mystical air, combining darkness and light. Your music is like soul travel. How did you get started musically?

KP- Thank you so much! I am so happy to be a part of the show!

I never followed through with the traditional musical education and continue to approach writing on an intuitive basis. Finding the chords that evoke something essential within me, and build on them...

In my early teenage years I spent a summer in a house of a musician where sprawled amongst the sparse furniture were instruments laying all about. I was alone a lot there, and to pass the time I tinkered with these curious creature-esque apparatuses trying to make them sing for me like they did for their owner. None truly resonated with me until I sat down at a piano and played and played and played until it was like some memory bubbling up from the depths of me.

I had always loved to sing, but reserved as I was, did it only in secret. It was a few years later when I met my step-sister, Luara Karlson-Carp, that I discovered this reservoir of courage I had to give voice to my songwriting. She has the most captivating voice, and her passion for singing was (and still is) utterly infectious.

M- So colourful..​There is something alchemical and transformative about your music. Your voice is siren-like and the sounds are deep. Do you feel this way when you are creating, or is this just my own projection? The dreamlike quality is very captivating.

KP- Music writing is like weaving spells, and I actively seek through writing my music, to transport into the landscapes of dreams. I am glad that you pick up on that element because I absolutely feel this way when I am creating songs. I grew up with very introspective tendencies, and this fed my imagination vital nutrients that blossomed through creative mediums.

When I started writing songs I began to construct mythologies of my own, and in isolation and accompanied with my imagination I liked to think that I gained access these realms through the music. I want to compose the music of dreams. The more dark and surreal, the better. I like peeling back the layers of things and exposing them with hints of the otherworlds.

M- You are like a dream. So happy you are on our show. Constructing your own mythologies.. it seems there is a theme for this show, which is spiritually independent women. What genres of music do you cover?

KP- A hint of classical, a hint of the archetypal songstress, a hint of witchery and the quintessential goth. Mostly dark, magical, and dreamy ambient soundscapes rooted in piano.

M-Who are some musicians who have influenced you? You are some artists or writers who have influenced your music? Why and how?

KP- Middle eastern music, The Oud (an entity in itself) will always be my genie granting me wonderous visions and a consistent spell to conjure the muses.

There are a few modern classical composers like Phillip Glass-- I worshipped Glassworks + his Solo Piano album. Ludovico Einaudi (particularly just the song “Primavera” which I’d listen to this song over and over and over- the violins electrocuting my spine with delicious exhilaration.

Lubomyr Melnyk and his fast piano playing, he plays continuously at a lightning fast speed that teleports me into some glorious place. It’s chaotic tendencies are intoxicating.

A friend of mine, Curtis Humphreys, of Kalpataru Tree was a humongous influence and inspiration to me as he was the first person to expose me to Ableton Live. As an electronic musician he makes sure that his performances have live instrumentation rather than pressing play on a pre-meditated track. He always improves gorgeous stream of consciousness guitar playing alongside his psy dub and ambient landscapes... the guy is a musical genius.

Of course the greats ... Paganini and Rachmaninov.

Its worthy to note that I also worshipped the albums "Fur and Gold" and "Two Suns" by Natasha Khan of Bat for Lashes by the holy shrine. Her songs were full of creatures and wizards and crystals and castles and mythic metaphors that spoke to my burgeoning artistic self.

M- Natasha!! She is just.. out of this world. She influenced me a ton too. Middle Eastern music; what a range. It shows. Where did you grow up?

KP- I was born in the little town of Livingston Montana, but had a gypsy momma who loved moving around so I grew up a little bit of everywhere. I spent a good portion of my life in Portland, Oregon though. I think that place keeps a good piece of me hostage, but my heart will evermore belong in Montana.

M--Do you live in Montana right now? How has that shaped your artistic visions and what sort of musical and artistic community is there in your town?

KP- I do live in Montana right now. Homebase is primarily out in Paradise Valley-- where I go to write. It is nestled in the majestic Absaroka Mountain range, close to Yellowstone Park. Full moon's rise up from behind the black mountain’s silhouettes, and reflect in the river. Some mornings there is an ethereal mist that hovers above the river, its beautiful. The silence, the huge expanses of empty valleys and gigantic mountain ranges have given birth to so many creative projects. Currently I live in the nearby town of Bozeman, and the artistic community here is nothing short of wonderful, full of brilliant poets, artists, and writers who I’ve been blessed to have met.

M- It sounds beautiful! You are also a photographer and a writer, releasing a book right now! Can you tell us a bit about it?

KP- I had a photograph released in this year’s issue of Montana State University's Literary Arts Journal, Opsis. The photo is titled “Book Hoard.” It is a self-portrait where I am essentially swimming in my books, and was inspired by the film Only Lovers Left Alive.

My heart has always had a love for analogue photography. I’ve played with film cameras since I was a teenager, haunted by the grandfather who I never met who was a photographer in WWII, some of my earlier memories are playing with his various photography paraphernalia lying about the house and it has stuck with me.

My brother, Orin Pierson, and also a photographer named Jim Presley--who might as well be my second brother--were my teachers and primary sources of inspiration in the beginning. Like music, photography is another medium of creative expression that fuels me, and like music and photography, writing is yet another. I write poetry and short fiction. I enjoy all sorts of art.

M--What do you plan to do with your music in the next few years?

KP- Keep writing. keep playing, perform more than I have been. Soon I plan to work with Mehran Azma of Sinis Recordings and release some tangible music on vinyl. The future's looking bright.

"Finally, Discover How to Create Successful and Engaging Podcasts That Instantly Will Brand You As The Expert and Drive Loads of Traffic Back To Your Products and Services…Starting Today!"


Don’t know where to start?  Thinking “I’m a complete newbie, I can’t do this…”?  Well don’t! While podcast marketing is somewhat technical, we will cover the basic fundamentals to ensure you can create podcasts with ease.  This training course was created so you could quickly and easily implement this blueprint right away.In fact, most of this video course is screen-captured video, meaning you'll see everything on the screen as your walked through the whole process.





Surefire Podcast Blueprint 2.0


11 Part Video Course


Video #1:  Introduction to Podcast Marketing

So before we jump right in and get into the meat of this video course, in this specific video we are going to show you a quick overview of the course itself, tools you're going to need, and of course, how it all works.  This way you have a bird’s-eye view of how everything is going to be implemented to create your successful podcasts.


Video #2:  What's In A Podcast?

While it's easy for you to want to jump right in and begin creating your podcast, it's important to plan ahead and know exactly what you're going to talk about and how you're going to lay your podcast out.  So in this specific video we are going to not only plan ahead, but I'm going to show you how to do some basic research so you have an idea of the other podcasts in your niche.


Video #3:  Writing a Intro and Outro Script 

Writing what we call the intro and outro is important. Basically, this is the beginning and the end of your podcast. The ‘intro’ is what introduces you as the expert and speaker. Doing this wrong can actually backfire, so you want to make sure you do it the right way. The ‘outro’ allows a person to take action. Fortunately for you, you get the copy and paste script so you don't really have to think about what you should write - just fill in the details.


Video #4:  Hire Voiceover Artist for Intro and Outro

While you can create your own intro and outro, it's better to get somebody else to introduce you, and then you introduce yourself, especially when you're trying to position yourself as the expert. Therefore, in this specific video I'm going to show you two sites that you can use to hire voiceover artists for fairly cheap.  I'm also going to discuss what types of voiceover artists you should hire for your specific podcast, because it can vary from niche to niche.


Video #5:  Microphone and Software Editing Tools

We all know that having the right microphone and software editing tools is a huge factor, so here we're going to cover specific types of microphones. I'm actually going to show you what I use and recommend highly, including the software editing tools. Just a reminder though - we will mainly be focusing on audio since this is more about the basics. However, bear in mind thatwith iTunes you can always upload video as well, so I'll ensure that I cover video editing software tools.


Video #6:  Record Your Podcast (How to Create Soundproof Environments) 

Now that we have laid out the groundwork, it is time to record your podcast. But the big question remains - how can you record your podcasts in such a manner that you can remove all of the room sound? For example, how can you create a soundproof environment when you have a noisy neighbor or house?  You'll learn some shocking truths as to how to create a soundproof environment with items that you most likely already have.


Video #7:  Edit Your Main Podcast Yourself

Once you have recorded your podcasts you still need to edit them. So, since we have an introduction and a call to action at the very end, I'm going to show you how to add these two parts to the main podcasts.  I'm also going to show you how to edit the podcasts, and of course how to add a soundtrack to create a specific environments for your listeners.


Video #8:  Podcast Hosting - Sites to Use

Before you can submit to iTunes, you need to have a place that will host your audio files. The big question here is what sites should you use? I am going to show you one specific site that I highly recommend. Using these types of sites will make your life a lot easier in terms of tracking your podcast and of course submission to iTunes.


Video #9:  Creating a Podcast - Upload Audio Files to Podcast Hosting

Once you have signed up for the recommended podcast hosting or decided on where you want to be, it's time to create a podcast and upload your audio files to the podcast hosting sites. We'll go through the step-by-step process of creating a podcast correctly and getting up to the point to ensure that it is in the right RSS podcast format. Fortunately for you, while this does sound quite technical it really isn't, as long as you understand how to follow me step-by-step as you watch over my shoulder.

Before you can submit to iTunes, you need your podcast in RSS format.  You will need this to add to iTunes otherwise it will slow down the submission process.

Dream Meanings

By Eden

Dream Meanings

Have you ever put up with a repeated dream?  Most of us have had them from time to time.  The very fact that it is a dream that you know repeats means it is a dream you remember.  We know that we all dream lots of dreams throughout a given night of sleep.  But only a few dreams poke through to our conscious mind so we are aware of them.  So if a dream can break through that barrier, that is a persistent dream that has more power than most dreams because it can blow down that wall between sleep and being awake and get your attention.

If a dream blows down that wall over and over again, that is the kind of dream that is really trying to get your attention.  So if you can find out what the meaning of that dream is, the first good of it is that it will help you resolve whatever your subconscious is trying to tell you to fix.  But maybe the best outcome is that when you resolve whatever is so important to your subconscious that it keeps barging into your conscious mind, that dream can finally go away.  And in most cases, we are darn glad to see those repeated dreams disappear.

To try to "decipher" what your subconscious is trying to say, first put the dream, whether it is a one time dream that was disturbing or a repeating dream, in the context of your life.  If you think about your dreams or you keep a dream journal (which is a very good idea), you will identify connections between events that happened the day before the dream or within a week that are directly connected to the dream.  Hence, if you are going to start a new job, move to a new town or start a new school, you will often have a dream where you are in a place you don’t understand and you are trying to figure it out.

There isn’t a lot of action you need to take about that kind of dream.  But it helps to understand that your subconscious mind is just coping with the same level of anxiety that your conscious mind is trying to get through.  By knowing the simple meaning of that dream, you can see what is going on in your subconscious and you can make the connection to your real life.

The subconscious "thinks" in ideas and emotions and reactions to events.  Fears, doubts, misgivings, hurt feelings, myths and paranoia will all live full lives in your subconscious mind.  By connecting those images to the real life events that caused those feelings and emotional thoughts, you can resolve the emotional difficulty in your subconscious simply by "having a good talk" with yourself.  And when you do that, you release your subconscious to tackle the next big problem in your life.  That is good management of your dream life by knowing the meaning of dreams and what to do about them.

Shugga Cherm: Brooklyn's Irrepressible DJ/Musician

By Meta



Talking with the resilient Shugga Cherm, a Jamaican now based mainly in Brooklyn. His music ranges in texture and tone and emotion, which inspires a sense of sponteneity and unpredictability, just like in real life. There is a sense of limitlessness. Take a listen today on to hear his sounds and beats on the 4/20 show.

M- Hi there, Shugga Cherm. You have quite an awesome story. It seems your life has been a cool adventure, starting from a closely knit rooted family life in Jamaica, involving tons of music, and now you are in Brooklyn. Can you tell us a bit about how this all happened? When did you move?

SC- I was born in jamaica, as a youth growing up jamaica am always around music whether it's sound system, bands or just making it with what's available around me. When I was 12 I moved to Brooklyn ny, I never liked at first but I get used to it. I see it's a very musical place, so a certain area would remind me of jamaica and also met other people that was into the music just like me so it was a good start for my journey.

M- Are you still involved in a music scene in Jamaica, as well? Where in Jamaica were you born?

SC- I still keep contacts with my musical friends I haven't done any shows there but we planning on doing that and much more musically, I was born in the parish of Clarendon which is in the middlesex of jamaica.

M- Has living in Brooklyn influenced your music? What is it like playing there?

SC- Definitely, the people and the vibes give you that drive to do music more, everywhere is a party or a car playing music, the people influence me more tho. Brooklyn is a great place to perform, you gotta bring your best when you performing, cause they not gonna accept no foolishness lol, so it's all about love and respect so just go and mash up the place and make the people feel good.

M- So cool. You have described yourself as being “severely creative”. That sounds fantastic.. What does this mean to you?

SC- Yea when am creating I wanna put all my energy all my passion. All the skills and tools that I have to make it happen, if I have to write A verse over ten times I will do it, basically and will to get the work done no matter what it takes.

M- Driven.. You create your own beats.. what programs do you use, and how do you do this? Do you sometimes create organic sounds from scratch?

SC- Yea make my own riddims (beats) and I use reason and pro tools. I start out with a drum and bass, sometimes I use instruments from the programs and sometimes I get custom made instruments from other musician depends on the style I wanna use for that track.

M- That's what I want to do too. Love that you are so ranged in vision. Your music is very bold and natural. How old were you when you discovered this natural blessing of ability?

SC- I guess since I was born, music was just a part of my life, you don't really chose it, it grows in you.

M- Agreed. Can you tell us a bit about Sotti studios?

SC- Yea that was my very first record deal I got when I was in high school, I was a intern there and they was making a mixtape for the label and I told them I wanna get on it, ofcours they didn't take me serious, but the next day I went there got in the booth and did a 16 bar vers and the rest was history. Plus I get to work with a lot of professional people in the music biz so it was a great experience for me as a teenager.

M- Where do your lyrics come from? Does it flow naturally off the top of your head, or do you get in a zone to write first?

SC- Well I don't like to overthink things, when writing music so get my inspiration from daily life and people and things that's happening around me and I freestyle too so I kick a few off the dome.

M- The fresh and spontaneous magical approach. Can you tell us the story behind the song “Twenty Five”? The sounds are so good. It is my favourite right now.

SC- I did that song in 2010 in my home studio, it was a lot of negative stuff goin on in the neighborhoods a lot of young people was losing they life over gang war or even for nothing. Everytime I herd that song (road to Zion) I said I wanna get on this beat, i finally got the instrumental, wrote down all my thoughts and put the song together and that's how it came out.

M- So, what and who are your influences, Shugga Cherm?

SC- Fire Raq Production is the biggest influence when it come to makin music and just life in general , and we give thanks for all the artist that set the foundation, its too much artist to name so am gonna name a few, buju banton,shabba,super cat, bounty killer, capleton, sizzla.....Rking Redemption..Blingazz...local and international artist.

M- Do you think people should be thrown in jail for smoking weed?

SC- People should not be thrown in jail for smoking some ganja and hold a meditation.
