about

Sonically, this is where midaxmusik was at 10 years ago. This album is LONG OVERDUE, but the message is still the same regardless of how everything on this planet has changed. It has withstood the test of time despite almost dying on 700mb data CD's. The beats and subject matter are varied and experimental in nature and will continue to be timeless despite hip hop trends.

This project was to be released in 2005 as a 10 track album between "Protean Complexity" and the "Suspect Republic" CD with Tha Midax and P.R.O.T.E.A.S. operating as a duo (some of those tracks are featured here in lieu of a full release). Ultimately, "The Prime Directive" has blossomed into a culmination of all of the recordings of that period. Perhaps the biggest irony is that despite the art work displaying "Explicit Lyrics", we consciously chose at the time to keep many tracks edited and as radio-friendly as possible, and those appear here as well.

Vocals were recorded on tape, mini-disc recorders, on 98 Windows big box style computers, and even over the phone or emailed on AOL and hotmail accounts as life moved us apart. We had fun with effects, odd samples, and experimenting with sound. Here is a testament to the dawn of digital recording and home studios, revamped and slightly mastered for 2015. Hope y'all enjoy the trip! WE KEEP IT RAW!
