Protector 101

Protector 101

Protector 101 springs forth from the 80's, cutting through a maze of neon-laden back-alleys, to re-enchant your stereo systems with melodies and feelings of this gone-but-not-forgotten decade. Armed to the teeth with post-apocalyptic synth, machine-gun drum machines and fueled by an insatiable appetite for pulsating bass lines,

Protector 101 stands side by side with other cyborg-musicians such as John McCallum and Brad Fiedel. The sounds of Protector 101 is the 80's synth soundtrack for your modern day living world.

Street Cleaner

Street Cleaner

Held captive by criminals who run the streets, the citizens of San Diego cry out for justice. The police are powerless against the crime syndicates who use the city as a battleground for their turf war. 

Enter, Detective Jack Slade. By day, respected badge. By night, masked vigilante. He does what is necessary to uncover the truth behind the crooked politicians, human traffickers, and drug lords. When the mask is on, no law can stop him from hitting the streets, and taking them out.

Jack Slade is, The Street Cleaner.
