You were minding your own business, aimlessly surfing the information superhighway and you somehow ended up here. Since you seem confused as to exactly what this post is about, let me fill you in.
The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear. And now that everyone has been clued in as to what the devious purpose of this series is, let’s kick things off with one of the legendary names of the 90s Goa Trance movement.
Martin Freeland, aka Man With No Name ( I’ve mentioned him many times) was a key piece in the development and rise to popularity of Goa, one of the earliest forms of what we now know as Trance. Although he first started out as a Techno producer, by the mid 90s he had shifted towards trance and, in 1994, released one of his most famous hits to date : Teleport.
His 1996 debut album entitled Moment Of Truth is to this day, one of the most sought-after albums in the history of the genre. The creative use of the four to the floor kick pattern, backed by the popular 303 acid bass line and accented by many sweeps and short melodic sequences, created a happy middle ground between the harder sounds of techno and the softer sounds of deep house. This was basically a ‘best of both worlds’ approach and it worked brilliantly.
He released two more albums before remaining relatively quiet on the production front : Earth Moving The Sun in 1998 and Interstate Highway in 2003.
From Interstate Highway, here’s Space Juice :
