Once and a while you tumble across a record that leaves you jaw dropping while mumbling what the fxxk! 'Clear' is the much acclaimed A side: phat sec electro with some vocoders advising you to clear your mind. Simply brilliant.
But then you flip the record to the B-side and you discover an obsolete but stunning gloomy electro industrial track called 'Industrial Lies', loaded with haunting guitarplay and melodic strings layered on a nifty cold drummachine pattern. I don’t know who was first, but the resemblance with Neon Judgements 'Too Cold To Breathe' is striking. Definitely one of my new fetish tracks!

The original version of this song is the proper evidence into the faces of people who are still insisting that electronic music tracks are just one day hits. After all these years it sounds as fresh and new, like it did when it was first released, and it still beats anything in the genre and beyond it. A perfect example of the timeless electronic classic. Even if it was the only track of Cybotron, it would be enough to establish his current "Godfather of Techno" status.

One of the first Detroit electronic classics appeared suddenly at the beginning of the eighties, made by the later techno pioneer Juan Atkins with Rick Davis (aka 3070) in a project called Cybotron. During an interview we done circa 2005, Atkins told about 'Clear': *Clear* goes along with the concept of clearing all the old programs and bringing all the new. We wanted to give hope to the listeners for the future, the post-industrial atmosphere in Detroit was very depressive. To talk about the future and prediction provided a sense of hope, of something to look forward to. That’s the main thing of Cybotron’s tunes."
