-sMs- ESP Events and Berzerk present Penta LIVE
ESP, -sMs- and BERSERK team up to bring you a twin room monster event on Sunday10th June (Queens Birthday Long Weekend) with a very special guest PENTA from SanFrancisco/Portugal performing live for the first time alongside some of Sydney's finest Dj's.
Russian born Nikita Tselovalnikov is a veteran of countless punk, rock and industrial projects. With 3 full albums under his belt and multiple V/A compilation releases he has been in continuously high demand at festivals and parties around the globe. With a very clean and pumping psychedelic sound that explodes with energy Penta is renowned for pushing dance floors to the next level. Once again we are very excited to be able to secure him for a Sydney performance in-between his busy global touring schedule.
AuraQuake Music was established by Nikita Tselovalnikov and Catia Leitao in December 2004 as a platform to release fun, innovative and quality psychedelic music. The first three titles were - the second album by Penta â€œFunraiserâ€ and compilations â€œSeismic Moodâ€ and â€œJitter Glowâ€. Presenting Pentaâ€™s third album â€œHorn Pleaseâ€, AuraQuake continues to delight with its own take on the psychedelic story
Endless traveling, constant noise of the parties, life in hotels, as well as a considerable dose of couch-surfing, has accumulated in Pentaâ€™s head into something that resembles the chaos of Indian street traffic. Horn Please â€“ the message that is written on the back of the sub-continentâ€™s trucks could never been more appropriate to describe the desire to bring order to trance musicianâ€™s life. This CD, executed in the style of a Mumbai taxi, is a dedication to the crazy party life in the form of a collection of morning and night psytrance tracks, sometimes written in headphones in different parts of the globe, and already successfully tested on the biggest dance floors of the planet. Faster BPMs than in his previous albums, as well as the use of the latest technologies, makes â€œHorn Pleaseâ€ one of Nikitaâ€™s most psychedelic works to date.

The Berserk Room
Berserk, a venture of the Cranial Fracture Recordings label is a Sydney nightclub running on the third Saturday of every month that focuses on electro, industrial and hard psy. The night has established a strong reputation for showcasing quality musicians and dj's throughout it's life with a firm commitment to the music that drives it. The Bezerk Room will feature the sounds you have come to expect from this crew with some added sonic reinforcement and VJ's.
Virulent - Berserk
As a DJ, Virulent has played extensively in Sydney and Melbourne clubs, including Vortex, Cabaret Nocturne (former weekly residency), Dark Events, Carmilla's, Die Maschine, Batcave, Cyberdelia, Horror and Bloodlust, among others. As a producer/musician, Virulent is known for making the music for "The Crystalline Effect" and "Plague Sequence", among other projects. The Crystalline Effect's debut album "Glass" was released in 2005 by European label Black Flames Records and received great reviews worldwide. Virulent has played dozens of live shows throughout Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide and is also an active remix-artist, having remixed renowned artists such as Implant, Skoyz, Alien Produkt and Blank, among others. Currently completing a debut album, Plague Sequence is a subjective view of the technofetishistic webwork of a computer-obsessed existence, an intimate portrayal of the integration of the hi-tech into human culture.
