Kapten - Polarity EP

May 26, 2020

We are excited to announce that the first complete work of Kapten, aka P. Kapetanakis, is released with the support of To Pikap Records, on cassette and on all digital platforms.
Polarity EP captures trumpet player, composer and orchestrator Kapten, in a point of departure on his new, yet mature, musical journey.
During his studies in Netherlands and his nearly two-decade path as a musical performer, Kapten has been influenced by various artists and sounds, managing to blend diverse elements into a contemporary and organic piece of work.
In Polarity we see a fusion of soul, trip hop, dub and afro sounds, that create a feeling of a film-noir soundtrack, while the spirit of jazz master Miles Davis is floating around the whole creation.
This conceptual, luscious and finely balanced artwork, shows that the future looks promising for this upcoming artist. We need more of Kapten's musical universe and we greatly hope to be a part of it.

Alien Mustangs - Shadows

January 30, 2020

It has been 7 years since Alien Mustangs’s debut 7”, though it seems like time stands almost still into their hypnic (sic) universe. Lazy slides, recurring bass lines and stoned tempos are dressing the scenery of their new 12” single with the anticipated levels of fuzz. A perfect prescription indeed.

Totsouko - Olga Xefteri

December 20, 2019

Totsouko returns with a new full-length work following the 10'' EP of 2014 "Als Das Kind Kind War", which also marked the start of the record label "To Pikap Records".
Time is morally indifferent to each and every one of us. It shapes us silently and at times carves deep and indelible marks on us. In response to this process, artists, consciously or unconsciously, sculpt works, create autonomous areas, steal pieces of time for themselves, and then offer them generously to all of us.
The new 10 '' EP, "Totsouko - Olga Xefteri", the latest release of "To Pikap Records", is a tender, lyrical and sincere work. Listening to it introduces us to the creator's inner world by telling a continuous and homogeneous story.

The creator uses warm, dull and clear sounds at the same time. It draws on the experiences of the leftfield electronica of the last 30 years (instrumental hip hop, trip hop, analogue, acid, dub, ninja tune, boards of canada), but does not add anything unnecessary, beyond the essential, to the benefit of the spectacular. It is not music made for the sake of music, but the expression of a person's mental and emotional world through sound.

Floros Floridis- F.L.O.R.O IV -Future Learning Of Radical Options

October 30, 2019

Floros Floridis made his first record release in 1979 with the radical work “Improvising at Barakou's'' in collaboration with Sakis Papadimitriou. This record is the first release of improvisational music in Greece. Since then Mr Floridis proves with his works a continuous vitality and creativity, being always contemporary and innovative. These are the exact characteristics of his latest work “F.L.O.R.O. IV Future Learning Of Radical Options”, which we have the honor to release on vinyl record through our label “To Pikap Records”.

This is a dense, multilayered work which develops in extensive depths. Electronic music and natural wind instruments are combined in order to transform into sound, the philosophy and the vast experience of the artist.

This work could be described as modern, traditional, futuristic music, which stays at the same time, always open to all that exists between and beyond these definitions.
