Alex Panopoulos, the guy behind the Zik initiative, is the man in charge. Alex began making music at the age of 13 with gabber hardcore sounds under the artist name Terrorist. In 1999, he began writing chill out and psychedelic music with pals and entered the Zik realm. He started spinning around the earth and met many interesting earthlings that exchanged the same vibe of creation, which is sound. Along the process, he created projects such as the Matutero project from 2000 to 2004, the Horror Place project from 2004 to 2008, and the Adrenal Gland project from 2006 to 2010, forming collaborations with various artists such as Jibber Jabber, ZikOre, PolyZik, and KukuRuku. Zik collaborated with many artists around the globe, such as Alien Mental, Polyphonia, Orestis, Kulu, Stranger, Mind Oscillation, Paul Karma, Kindzadza, Psykovsky, Furious, The Nommos, Audiopathic, Darkshire, Fractal Cowboys, Drury Nevil, Lab, Ocelot, Cosmo, Blisargon Demogorgon, Savage Scream, Dejan, Noise Gust, Jelly Headz, Dark Elf, Parahalu, Kashyk, Samadhi, and more. Music was released on various labels such as Echo Vortex Records (world), Insomnia Records (Russia), Dropout Productions (USA), Vertigo Records (Russia), DevilsMind Records (Sweden), Sanaton Records (Sweden), Cosmic Theatre Records (Finland), Mistress of Evil Records (USA), Phreex Networx Records (Japan), Avatar Records (Israel), Pleiadian Records (Mexico), Noise Conspiracy Records (Cyprus), Manic Dragon Records (China), Taantrum Records (USA-India), DiscoValley Records (Greece), The 5th Element Records (Mexico), Brain Busters (Japan), Deja vu records (Russia), Antimateria recordings (Brazil), Mass Abduction Records (Mexico), and many more. The concept is to deliver to the audience a feeling of an intense trip into the darkest corners of their subconsciousness for a better understanding of human nature and fears. Mystification, Zik’s most recent production and album, was released on Pralayah Records in 2021. A Zikarma album is on the way.
