Mi5 Recordings is writing its long-range success story. We want to build careers, create opportunities, whether through our corporate contacts, recording and touring, or film work. We are not interested in the short-term gains for pennies at the expense of tomorrow’s dollars. We look into creating our own audience for Mi5 Recording, an audience that will be loyal. We want to find an alternative solution that does not cost millions and will be an effective counter to the conglomerates’ dominance over the industry. We want our artists to share ideas and, in turn, we will follow up every lead that we can to bring about our goal. Mi5: In-vision possibilities today to A-rticulate, R-evolutionize, T-hought for tomorrow.

PAST, PRESENT, AND INTO THE FUTURE. The state of the music industry is in rapid change. There are far too many excuses then a real reason for this, digital downloads, digital piracy, greedy labels, short sided managers and artists requiring financially unmanageable advances, packaged artists dominated by and for a consumer driven audience with an attention span of 3 months or less and a loss within mainstream recording industry on what is really hip. THere can be no one reason that has brought this major change, however one thing is certain, there is a major opportunity emerging that demands immediate attention. Since established record labels require sales in the millions to satisfy shareholders’ profit demands, the companies have largely abandoned musically adventurous acts and artists. To maximize sales and profits, record conglomerates more often favor conservative acts, or those that appeal to the lowest common denominator. Consequently, a sizeable market share has been left untapped. Artists who reach a defined, cognizant audience are completely overlooked, even when they have, in the past, achieved consistent record/ticket sales and critical acclaim, Among these musicians, Mi5 Recordings sets up a bond and trust that goes beyond money, fame, or any of the the other lesser trappings of pop culture. As a result, individuals with whom I work at Mi5 are PARTNERS to an entertainment company, holding down production expenses through a shared, co-operative work strategy. A NEW VISION: Mi5′s vision of the future is a good one. It is a future where people have fun working on great projects in an open and creative atmosphere. This sounds idealistic. But how can idealism become a moneymaking business? We at Mi5 “in-vision” branching out, charting untapped markets, utilizing the latest Net Technology and business strategies to ensure that our artist’s vision will be shared and their voices heard. To help accomplish this, we have worked hard at the grass root level to ensure that our audiences will feel a particular bond with the Mi5 process, the artists, and their art. Hearing the voice of our audiences up close, noting their input, harnessing their enthusiasm, we have learned to put together packages that will become evermore successful in the market place. We cannot only bring artists to light; we can keep them there. WHAT IS MI5? Think James Bond. Imagine Great Britain. Think Cold War ironies. Remember the CIA, the KGB, Pop Art chaos, and Radio Free Certainties. Yeah, you got it now! With our creative international line-up and U.K. roots, we not only answered the call to that kind of classic 60s feel, we ARE 21st center Multicultural Britain, a 21st century reality. In this time when pop music gather dust, spills blood, and just drones on, we want to do something fun, up beat, witty and droll; we want to sharpen the edge of today’s music scene.

Both during Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and now through to the end of the third year of his regime I have been speaking with the country's leading mental health professionals about the threat he poses to democracy and the world.

I reached out to some of them for their expert analysis of Trump's impeachment letter to Nancy Pelosi and what it reveals about his state of mind and behavior. Their consensus: Donald Trump is mentally unhinged.

Here is Dr. Justin Frank, author of the book "Trump on the Couch", warning:

"When I first read Donald Trump’s six-page letter to Speaker Pelosi, I marveled at the ease with which he shared what goes on in his mind openly, and without reservation. His letter is the quintessential example of how professional victims actually think. They turn the prosecutor into the persecutor.

Trump’s letter is just such an expression of entitled, delusional grievance. He accuses Pelosi of injuring his family, but it is his nepotism that exposes his older children to public scrutiny and his teenager (to whom he refers as “Melania’s son") to life in a fishbowl. More damning, in making her a public figure, he subjected the First Lady to humiliation. He knew full well he paid a stripper $130,000 not to talk about their affair and was surely aware that this and other unsavory behaviors would surface when he sought the presidency.

Trump is a con artist who succeeds by tricking his marks into not seeing the con. But the biggest mark — bigger than the GOP and his base — is himself. He believes the lies he tells, the delinquent traits he disavows. It’s what psychoanalysts call delusional projection. We see it the simple sentence he wrote to the speaker: “You view democracy as your enemy.” Trump confirms my findings published in "Trump on the Couch." But now his defenses are writ large, because instead of changing in moments of crisis, people become more the way they are. Trump has reverted to the most familiar means to cope with fears of being caught, punished and humiliated.

Finally, the letter is a treasure trove for psychiatric residents who want to study the psychotic mind. Trump’s paradoxical sleight of hand makes him think he can hide in plain sight. But he can’t anymore. This is why he accuses Pelosi of hating democracy: It is he who hates a system that promotes the idea that no one is above the law."

You can read the rest of the warnings about Donald Trump's out of control mind at the link below over at Salon.

Cheb Khaled & Carlos Santana

Mi5 Recordings produced/financed the 2004 Grammy jam Awards (Khaled and Carlos Santana) ("Love to the people”) Cheb Khaled is the King of Rai and is an International Star selling roughly 80 million records worldwide. Khaled Hadj Brahim was born in 1960 in Oran's Eckmühl neighborhood, Algeria. At the age of 14, he founded the Cinq Étoiles (Five Stars) band and started performing in nightclubs and at weddings.
In the 1980s, Khaled started producing and singing songs in the Raï genre. He moved to France in 1986.

Carlos Santana (born July 20, 1947) is a Mexican and American guitarist who rose to fame in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band Santana, which pioneered a fusion of rock and roll and Latin American jazz. Its sound featured his melodic, blues-based lines set against Latin and African rhythms played on percussion instruments such as timbales and congas not generally heard in rock. Santana continued to work in these forms over the decades that followed. He experienced a resurgence of popularity and critical acclaim in the late 1990s. In 2015, Rolling Stone magazine listed Santana at number 20 on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists. He has won 10 Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards,[3] and was inducted along with Santana into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998

Trump experiences great pleasure from sadism. One of the four components of narcissism is sadism, getting pleasure — maybe even sexual pleasure — from degrading, humiliating and harming your enemies.

The first week of public impeachment hearings against Donald Trump in the House of Representatives has concluded. Despite the obsessive efforts of Trump’s Republican Party minions, his personal spokespeople and the right-wing disinformation media, the facts are clear: Multiple witnesses independen...
