AuraQuake Records was established by Nikita Tselovalnikov and Catia Leitao in December 2004...
...as a platform to release the next generation of psychedelic music. The first title - the new album by Penta 'Funraiser' is scheduled to be released in September 2005. Other releases by like-minded artists are soon to follow.
Nikita Tselovalnikov, the producer behind Penta, started to make music when he was twelve years old. Nikita attended music school and played in countless rock, punk and industrial projects now forgotten by history, where he grew up in Leningrad, Russia. In 1991 he relocated to the California, and currently lives in San Jose.
The Penta project initially started as an amusement for friends in December 2000, but quickly grew into a serious act on the San Francisco trance scene. His sound since has ignited dance floors across the globe, with its intense, powerful and innovative motifs. His music can be found in sets by top trance DJs all over the world, and has repeatedly appeared in Goa Gil's 'Divine Dozen'.
Penta has released an album 'Pentafiles', as well as many tracks on different labels, and has toured all-over the world from Japan to Brazil.
