“Heliotropio” is the personal project of Alkis Blokidis (guitarist and composer of the alternative band “Pikap”).

Through his first album entitled “Vega”, he is re-introduced in instrumental, cinematic, post rock compositions with electronic and ambient elements. Seven compositions that create sound and aim to travel intelligently to listeners from “Pelagos” to the star of “Vega”.

The recording and mixing took place in Fall 2019 by Giannis Damianos. The mastering was done by Dimitris Dimitriadis at Zero Gravity Studios. The musicians participated: Phoevos Anthis – drums, Giannis Damianos – bass, Alkis Bloukidis – electric guitar, acoustic guitar, synth, loops.

Beautiful Athenian band, their melodies are environmental, cinematic, with complex, smooth, refined textures and very well-structured melodies. Its cadence is perfect where you slide in every chord full of wonderful fingerings, bringing out a glimpse of virtuosity. The opening marks the foreshadowing of this ship that travels a serene sea full of feelings that awaits us in each melody and the closing is exquisite, which warns us that the next album will be fantastic. Excellent work Alkis, it was a privilege to get to know his work. Aryon Maiden.
