"Techno is reborn in Washington, DC with PENTAMON's EP release of 'Among The Thugs'"
-- Peanut Butter and Jams

Far from the bright lights at the peak hour of America's epic fixation on electronic dance music exists the deep, dark and powerful new techno sounds of PENTAMON. There's something that develops in the soul of every person truly touched by dance music - the desire to discover deeper, weirder, darker and heavier music – and that makes PENTAMON's tracks a powerful experience, affecting the listener at their emotional core. Blogs and journals like FACT Magazine, Dancing Astronaut and Washington City Paper favor PENTAMON’s debut single “Nite” as it showcases the ominous feeling of sinking into a musical abyss, yet instead of losing one's self, listeners and dancers safely break through to a deeper state of consciousness.

Though his identity remains a mystery, PENTAMON certainly has a gift for engaging and captivating a dance floor - he has over a decade of experience playing sets to hundreds and thousands of revelers. PENTAMON’s professional calling card is his ability to be a humble DJ who doesn't overpower a room with antics, and at the same time sharply executes intellect and respect - not just for those dancing to his sets, but for the history of dance music. Even though PENTAMON has brooding tracks with titles like “Among the Thugs,” his ability to create a vibe with surgical precision and uplift the souls of the listeners brave enough to trust his brand of techno identifies him as a unique talent worthy of praise.

Appreciating the notion that people have just as much desire to explore the night sound tracked by the darkest of grooves as they do to revel in the light, PENTAMON's sound occupies an important space in electronic dance music that is all his own.
