Oh-La-Sula ;)

"Dave Schmidt aka Sula Bassana was born in Berlin at the 27th of January 1968.
Dave first entered stage in 1985 or 86, can..t remember, as keyboardplayer of the electronic duo Solaris. Several electronic duos and trios followed. In 1994 he co-founded the psychedelic rockband Liquid Visions. They released 5 albums and some singles on several labels. In 1997 he founded Zone Six to create spontaneous psychedelic spacerock trips. Zone Six are still existing and released 5 albums. In 1998 Andi (Growing Seeds) and Dave formed the studioproject Weltraumstaunen to record some excellent freak outs. Two albums were released on Nasoni-Records. In 1998 he moved to Bayreuth (Bavaria) to fill the drummers seat in the spacerockband Growing Seeds. But in early 1999 they gave up and he went back to Berlin. They just released one vinyl-single on Pleitegeier-Records. In early 2003 he left Liquid Visions.
There was also a little episode with a nice ambient, drum'n'bass and dub-project called Space Shuttle Pilots, but sadly without any proper release.
Sula's first solo-album Dreamer was released on Nasoni-Records in 2002. More albums followed. Dave played in several projects, such as Psychedelic Monsterjam, together with Mani Neumeier on drums and Ax Genrich on guitar. Two live-CDs were released on Sunhair-Records. In 2003 he co-founded the psychedelic-postrock-project Südstern 44, together with Ellipopelli (ex Growing Seeds) and Julius K (Zone Six). There was one album on Nasoni-Records and one CD-R released by the band.
In late summer 2006 he moved to Austria and founded his label sulatron-records, plays guitar in the young local rockband Alice Dog and has started a new project called Interkosmos, with Sergio Ceballos (guitar and vocals, from RIP KC, Spain), Bernhard Fasching (drums, from The Blowing Lewinsky) and Dave on bass. He also played some gigs as guitarplayer with the Øresund Space Collective in Germany and Norway.
He also jammed on stage with the following bands and musicians: Gas Giant, Circle, Damo Suzuki, Keiji Miashita, Horst Porkert, The Movements, Electric Orange, Niagaragain, Spheric Lounge, Annot Rhül and members of Seid... mostly in Germany, but also in Austria, Spain, Netherlands, Denmark, Switzerland and Norway.
The latest project is based at his new home, together with his landlord and saxophone-wizard Mario Rechtern and spontaneous guests: Das Alte Haus." ~ MySpace
