FEATURING GOVINDA & DAVID STARFIRE
<3 PRESALES! <3
FakeLife presents .:. THE ASTROLOGICAL TOTEM .:.
The Astrological Totem is a series of themed events to showcase all forms of artistic expression, taking place each month in 2013. This is the time in which we celebrate the gracious complexity of the human race. The complimenting characteristics defined by an ancestral fusion of genetic code along with nurture, make up the beautiful energy being, that is *you*. The ability to experience is a gift from the heavens and will be emphasized and celebrated through the honey of the soul. We are one organism, creating the most powerful force imaginable, the frequency of love.
Our intention is to give you a glimpse into the perspective that is FakeLife. We give you an experience to allow your uniqueness to shine, a festival of astrological proportions. Each month, we will allow your astrological sign to radiate its essence, recognizing the connection between yourself and the forces that work to keep you on route to experience love and light with those closest to you.
Always and forever recognizing all forms of artistic creation, effort, understanding, and practice; each Totem event will be the forum for many different artistic outputs. Prepare to become part of a “You” inspired event. Welcome to the Family, let us grow and evolve the experience together. We are one.
Ruling Planet: Mars
Symbol: The Ram
Stone: Ruby, Diamond
Life Pursuit: THE THRILL OF THE MOMENT
Secret Desire: To pave the way for others
Picture in the distance a crimson ram, proud from victory. Powerful ammonite shaped horns glowing halo white, showing victory and signing comfort into the mind. The eyes stop time, telling the story of the battle, showing every emotion. Beneath its dense woolen core accented by sheen golden fur, a calming cloud of red dust subdues and settles to the earth below.
This image describes the heart of the Aries. The rhythm is instinctual, strong, and dynamic. Each of us possess our own unique pulse, no two are the same. Like a fingerprint, subtle fluctuations in these pulse waves make up who you are in the present. This is a direct representation of your true self. The true self is what Arians know best. They trust to look with in and feel what’s in their heart. Those that are born under Aries are full of energy emitted directly from the core.
The core, safe within our chest, is the heart’s pulse emitting frequency. The understanding in spiritual, medical and holistic realms is that the heart is conscious. Our intentions are held here. They are expressed through electromagnetic fields that are felt throughout the collective conscious. Pulsing with synchronicity to the surroundings. The heart feels all and when connected to the brain the result is white light, awareness. To grow this awareness we tune in to the frequencies emitted.
Following in the way of the Aries, listening to the heart.

ILL Cosby created and will guide you through the sonic environment, flowing… the moment, flowing… into the feeling, and was selflessly crafted for you and for those who choose to become and take part in “the beef”.

One thing is certain; Deph was born to make music. It started with pieces from a used drum kit in 1993. An electric guitar soon followed. Then there were keyboards, drum pads and bass. Recognizing Deph’s raw talent, a local musician introduced him to an early version of Logic and while the raw feel of drums and guitar still resonated with him, Deph found himself drawn more and more to creating music through electronics. At 12, Deph dove headfirst into the underground hardcore scene. If there was a show happening in CT, he wanted to be there. But he didn’t stop with hardcore. The thriving cross promotion in the underground exposed young Deph to a variety of styles including punk, ska…and Rave. The minute Deph entered his first rave, he fell in love. The lasers, the dancers, the bass; all of them driven by the DJ behind the decks. And at that very moment Deph knew what he wanted to do. He wanted to make people dance. Years passed as he acquired equipment and records. When he attended events, his eyes were locked on the DJs, observing and absorbing their techniques. He practiced relentlessly, accepting nothing less of himself than smooth technicality with every mix. The hard work paid off, and Deph’s goal, to mix so tightly that the mixes themselves went completely unnoticed, was realized. These days, Deph is definitely creating a buzz in the underground. His mixing style of near technical perfection and his consistently fresh track selection deliver dance floor destruction wherever he drops his signature blend of music and math, each time elevating his art to a science. His original production offers nothing less. When Deph is slated at any gathering be sure not to miss this Techno-Technician.
