Rund um DAVE SCHMIDTs Sulatron-Label gibt es einiges zu feiern

When he's right, he's right. "By 2020, however, that will be 16 or 11 years," remarks Dave Schmidt - that's right, this article appears a few days too late. In 2004 Schmidt, one of the most dazzling figures of the local space psychedelic scene, founded Sulatron Records and in 2009 the band Electric Moon. How did the label come about in the first place? Schmidt freely admits: "What else should such a music fanatic do, if he doesn't have a job and is somehow not able to have a normal job? After all, label boss is also a job. And he does it well, because Sulatron has released over 100 releases so far. A balance that is quite respectable. "It started off leisurely and peaked around 2012. Now it's running at a reasonably decent level. Unfortunately, there is not really anything left of the Krautrock revival or the vinyl boom, and CD sales are also declining significantly

DAVE SCHMIDT - News from Sulatron Research

Dave Schmidt candidly mentions the chaos that currently reigns over him, and one cannot get rid of the impression that this disorderly state persists persistently and sustainably - but that it is also a source of his almost untameable creativity. Schmidt is currently giving the scene four high-calibre releases via Sulatron Records: a new live album by Electric Moon, the second album by the Russian band Polska Radio One, Krautzone will follow with separate CD and vinyl releases, and finally - what a surprise! - the first Zone Six studio album in 11 years.

eclipsed: The members of Zone Six call themselves lazy bastards. So how did the new studio album "Love Monster" come about?

Dave Schmidt: Like everything with Zone Six, this was very spontaneous, during a recording break at the Krautzone sessions.
