Producer Profile |  | March 14, 2010 | Posted by Basilisk

Paul Baguley and Sonya Bailey have been producing music as ManMadeMan since 1994, operating in both the commercial and underground dance scenes. They came from completely different musical backgrounds–Paul was working with bands and Sonya was a wayward young girl with a keen ear. Coming together they partied hard at some of the most legendary events back in the early days: Cripps Barn, Dragon Fly, The Fridge, The Rocket, and Space Hopper, the club that launched them. It was these experiences that inspired them to create music within a scene that was totally different from anything they had been involved in before.

And so MMM was born: one EPS 16+ and away they went until they had a live set. Whilst playing in the clubs where they had partied in earlier days, DJ Tsuyoshi Suzuki heard them and soon after they released their first single on London-based Matsuri Productions. Later they released their first album, Love Technology (2000) on Flying Rhino Records and followed this up by gigging around the world. This led to meeting loads of new people who were starting labels and soon ManMadeMan were releasing music globally with many record companies around the world. Several albums followed: Cell Division (2002), Creation Myth (2004), The Legend Remixes (2005). In 2007, ManMadeMan entered uncharted waters with the independent release of Free To Listen, the first major release by a psytrance artist to be completely legal to freely download. The response from the album has been phenomenal and ManMadeMan are planning a follow-up in late 2008/early 2009.

Today the studio consists of a Mac G5 and numerous analogue synths as well as a plethora of virtual tools. Logic Pro is used for sequencing–a far cry from their old Atari. Having two children during the last four years has brought many new things to MMM. It has been a learning experience and one that has cut both ways: making music through the night and then doing the school run isn’t always conducive to making trance, yet they have never given up and continue to show an unerring dedication to the scene. ManMadeMan remain hard to pigeonhole–they can turn their hand to many types of music–but trance is where their hearts lie.

    A very original and progressive feel to this album which shows the many sides of this creative style of release. You can find yourself hypnotized to the techno feel of the groove or be chilled by the toned atmosphere…

    Stand out tracks:

    Manmademan – stop watch
    Manmademan – Wow Wow
    Manmademan – Field Trip


    I really appreciate this free release compilation, thank you. ^_^

  • Bludsucks says:

  • RabidHummingbird says:

    Legends!! Legends, Dammit! Do you hear me Sonya & Paul?? Legends!!

  • Hexfire says:

    It’s to be wondered it got this low rating. It’s worth 4.5/5 at least. Amazing work and respectable project that keeps scene alive since 1996.

  • Basilisk says:

    I find this to be one of the very best releases available on the site today. I never tire of hearing this great album and continue to play many of these songs out to an enthusiastic dance floor response. Field Trip is loads of fun and always gets people shaking and shouting. The Path, later released on the Supermarket compilation, is very deep and spooky. Information Overload provides an excellent stepping stone between breakbeat patterns and progressive grooves. The science-fictional atmospheres of Alien Psychic and We Are Not Alone always work wonders. Not only is it an effective dance floor tool but with the smooth flow between tracks and mood-setting introduction and conclusion this is a fantastic home listening experience as well. I am really glad to have had the opportunity to promote this landmark release.

  • cowsinmongolia says:

    super super album……………. for a mainstream artist to come up with a free to listen album is applaudable… love and light to the artist and the music providers… well done…

  • Psy Ned says:

    kindly greets to Sonya

  • LazerBil says:

    Sonya and Paul deserve a lot of praise for breaking a mould. Perhaps this is something others could take note of and follow.
    Don’t forget there’s the added bonus of two previous albums from them to catch up.

    Cheers to Sonya and Paul!!
