I talk a bit about Projekt’s 40th anniversary, running the label over the years, and not being worried about AI. Want to comment on Projekt’s 40th? Do you have a question? Please share your thoughts in the Bandcamp community.
What have been your most notable milestones or personal achievements running the label?
Sam: Surviving ten years, then twenty years, then thirty, [and] then forty. There are very few independent labels that have survived. Especially ones like Projekt where we were not bought or silently funded by a bigger company. I have discovered some really interesting artists over the years: LYCIA, Voltaire, Love Spirals Downwards, Mira… and also been fortunate to work with some of the pioneers of American electronic space music like Steve Roach and Michael Stearns. Being involved in all these peoples music is an achievement for me. I started as a guy with a fanzine who wanted to share music I enjoyed. And that is what I am still doing!
