Free To Listen is the fourth studio album from the legendary ManMadeMan, a project formed in 1994 by Sonya Bailey and Paul Baguley. As two of the original psychedelic trance pioneers, their extensive discography includes releases on prominent labels such as Flying Rhino, Matsuri, Transient, TIP.World, Flow, and Turbo Trance, among others. In their words, the sound of ManMadeMan is described as “positive, funky, psychedelic, and musical all at the same time.” Free To Listen is perhaps the deepest and most genuine expression of the themes that ManMadeMan have explored throughout their long and successful career. By asserting total artistic control over this independently produced album, Paul and Sonya were free from the creative constraints imposed by risk-averse labels seeking only what is safe and dependable. This exposes the dual meaning of the title: not only is Free To Listen free for everyone to download and enjoy, but the very act of composing the album was itself a form of liberation. The results are impressive, encompassing a diverse range of styles including progressive, techtrance, psybreaks, full-on, downtempo, and other mutant strains of funky psychedelic trance.
