Matthew Jonathan "Matt" Darey (born 29 November 1968) who is from Leicester, England, has been a trance music producer since 1994. He is also a member of Lost Tribe with Red Jerry. He is perhaps best known for his work in the Euphoria trance series and for 'Gamemaster' (as Lost Tribe) and his remixes of Agnelli & Nelson's El Niño. In 2005, his first major U.S. albums, an EP, Point Zero (featuring the Li Kwan song of the same name), and a double album, Upfront Trance, were released. His works have sold a total of over 2 million copies. His ex-girlfriend, Marcella Woods, is often a guest vocalist on his recordings.
Darey frequently performs his trance sets at UK clubs such as Gatecrasher and Slinky, and over the internet through a monthly show on Digitally Imported's European Trance station. On August 13, 2005, he debuted a new show on Digitally Imported called Nocturnal, which became a weekly show in April 2006. Since Nocturnal became a weekly show, Darey has had guests such as Sasha, Tiësto, Paul Van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Nadia Ali, Offdate, Freemasons, D.Ramirez, Freeform Five, Cosmic Gate & Ferry Corsten perform guest mixes during the second hour of the show each week. Now the Nocturnal show is broadcast by 123 FM around the globe. In May 2007 he also started a monthly Podcast called Nocturnal Podcast. In October 2008, a sister show titled Nocturnal Sunshine, which includes the latest dance music hand selected by Matt himself, can be downloaded for free from Darey's homepage. This show differs from Nocturnal because it features at a faster pace, and is more mainstream compared to the regular show. The Nocturnal Podcast was nominated for the best podcast at Winter Music Conference in Miami in 2008. Matt is currently nominated in 2009 for Best Radio Mix Show DJ at the International Dance Music Awards.
His single Beautiful Day, featuring Antoine & Marcia Juell, became a club hit in the US, reaching the top 25 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music Club Play and hitting the top 20 on the Hot Dance Airplay chart.
Darey owns a record label, Darey Products, featuring releases from himself and upcoming artists.
Matt Darey wrote and produced the raga house track by 'Orgasmatron' entitled Rock The Disco, which was released on Universal records in 1997.
