My brain is only a receiver. In the universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength, inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists. ― Nikola Tesla

Protective Core is a project that started more than two years ago as a collaborative effort from Lao & Copout, both considered influential club experimentalists from Mexico City and New York. This collection of four tracks describes imaginary bio-technological landscapes that were illustrated by Chilean NYC based artist Hector Llanquin on a 16 page digital booklet. Protective Core is a science fiction story told through riffs, basslines and distressing synth pads that take your mind to another reality.
