Slovakian composer Lukáš Bulko will release a beautiful debut album as Alapastel, titled Hidden For The Eyes.

This eight-track album of neo-classical grandeur, electro-acoustic production, and subtle folk undertones was eight years in the making and signals the arrival of a unique and original new talent. Lukáš speaks with spirited and assured musical voice in an ambitious, pastoral, and otherworldly collection, enhanced by the vocal talents of Alex Lukáčová and Marián Hrdina, and the sensitive mix and mastering of Adam Dekan.

The album marks the first in a new Slowcraft Presents; series created and curated by James Murray: exceptional music offered in carefully crafted limited editions for people who treasure beautiful audio artefacts.

For the physical edition, each heavyweight custom double sleeve is individually rubber-stamped and numbered by hand in a limited first edition of 150 copies. Every package includes a concealed handwritten download code, glass-mastered CD, and insert with original artwork by Silvia Bobeková and an individually numbered, handwritten dedication from the artist himself.
