FLESH MECHANIC Epic tribute to Alex Murphy and our love for him. Protector 101 once again proves his amazing feel for cinematic scores with great flow of the songs and unbelievably atmospheric vibe that is present from start to finish. Favorite track: Uphold The Law [2016 Remaster].

Stevie Gill An earnest tribute to a classic 80s film, The Prime Directives is brilliantly nostalgic and atmospheric. It's dark, hypnotic and at times hard, yet it always manages to remain melodic. If I ever created film or video game, Protector 101 would definitely be top of my list for producing the soundtrack! Favorite track: (CLASSIFIED) [2016 Remaster].

SokK I really have no idea how to describe this release... I wouldn't be able to tell you how cool it is... Let's just say that's a Soundtrack to a Cyberpunk Cop Movie that never existed because no director ever could film anything that could match the music. Favorite track: Protect The Innocent [2016 Remaster].

kmxexii One of my faves, but better. This edition should be a wake-up call if you haven't grabbed either yet. The "Protect" remaster is cool; I dig the fuller, heavier arrangment. The "remixes" are basically new songs. The intro has dark atmosphere and the way "law" distorts is genius. "Serve" is blazing outrun. The new "Protect" has a great, harsh sound, sweet cyberpunk outrun. "Midnight" is groovy with a huge, dark dance beat. The COGEX remix turns the track on its head, sampling the ED-209 incident. Favorite track: Protect The Innocent [Alternate Mix].

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Like most projects that I work on, I tend to have "left-over" tracks (B-Sides). While working on TPD EP I really wanted to keep the concept that each
Directive had it's own track and leave it at that but that came at a price. Not only was I limited to how many tracks I could add to the release but I also had these additional tracks just sitting here; and that's what they did. They sat there doing nothing... Until now!

This version of TPD has been completely remastered and overhauled. Each original track has received a full makeover. “Serve The Public Trust" has a fuller sound with stereo panning, "Protect The Innocent" has a heavier and more sinister vibe, "Uphold The Law" has a updated guitar solo and the drums have a more live feel to them, and "(Classified)" just hits harder
overall.

The alternate version of the intro gives the album a totally different vibe right from the start, "Serve The Public Trust" is faster with a different solo, and "Protect The Innocent" sounds completely different compared to the version that made it to the original release. It has an heavy industrial vibe with longer use of samples. Fans of Skinny Puppy and Front Line Assembly will probably dig this version. Although mastered for this release, I'd like to let the listeners know that these alternate versions are kind of in a "demo state" as they were never fully fleshed out all the way but the structure and concept of the tracks is all there. "Midnight Grooves" never made it because it didn't fit my vision of the overall album, it’s a homage of sorts to the club scene from Robocop. Last but not least is the totally killer remix by my good friend and talented producer, COGEX. He takes the track "Protect the Innocent" to a whole new level and makes it really stand out by itself in pure awesomeness.

With all that being said please enjoy this remastered re-release of
The Prime Directives EP. What you have in your hands is truly the definitive version of this release.

Thank you,
P101
