It's been 14 years since Marc Clair aka Nu Era released new material, but as Geometricks shows, he hasn't lost his magic, Detroit-influenced touch. "Space Above Us" sets the tone with wonderful, warbling melodies, liquid acid bass and stirring strings all unravelling over a jerky, wiry rhythm. One simply doesn't hear this kind of uplifting, atmospheric techno these days. On "Lines Between Us", Clair delivers a warm bass and breezy synths, "Octahedron" revolves around a similarly lush combination - albeit with strings replacing then synths - while "Heartstrings" features crisp drums, soulful piano keys and soaring woodwind. It's the most musical piece on the release and proves that Clair is a true master of his craft.
