A trip goa trance track. Human teleportation, molecular decimation, breakdown and reformation is inherently purging. It makes a man a king.

Even though released '94 I first heard Sly-Ed 2 years later, when I was 15/16, as an opener of a mix-tape :) And man, this intro with the howling siren hooked me up and i never forgot the impact of this smooth track. It took me some while to find this track because on a tape...ya know, no tracklisting ^^ I think I rediscovered the track again on Oakenfold/Ramplings "A Voyage into Trance" mix-CDs.
So, this track is already 23 years old... Time flies :-/

One of the true great old school releases! Martin Freeland AKA Man With No Name has released countless ace tunes during his career, but none will ever match the importance and sheer brilliance of Teleport. An instant hit when first released, just like his other renowned numbers, it's farily simple, catchy yet damn irresistibly effective. It starts off with a female vocal chant, before venturing into an epic combination of a loud kick drum and benevolent, mind opening and larger than life melodies, with underlying acid synths stabbing from the background. Halfway through the track there's a sample about human teleportation, followed by some absolutely gorgeous, mouth watering melody work, rarely matched since.

Sly-Ed, which has the tough task of competing with Teleport, and while not even close to matching it (in my opinion, nothing is), it takes a different path, with toned down percussion, and melodies held back, not as in your face as on Teleport. It's pretty repetitive, some of that mind weilding music, that'll suck you in all the way or you'll push the stop button. This is more on the regular trance side of things, so people who give it a listen with modern ears might even label it as cheesy.

Man With No Name was oftenly getting negative criticism from regular followers of the goa trance scene for not being underground enough, in touch with his spiritual side, whatever. Basically, the guy wasn't shanti-shanti enough for most 'hippie til I die' listeners, so his music got frequently overlooked by die hard psy freaks. However, those who were around at the time when the likes of Oakenfold and Rampling made this 12" the greatest floor filler since New Order's Blue Monday, will tell you about Martin's undeniable legendary status. He is simply in a league of his own, with his own original sound, which strikes a perfect balance between raw, acidic goa trance and regular, uber melodic epic trance stuff. And if you want to learn more, Teleport would be the ideal place to start.
