Profile: Matt Darey has been one of the pioneers of trance since its early days in 1994 and a major influence on the next generation of trance DJ’s and producers. The Leicester-born Darey was a marketing student when he had his first hit. Released as part of a half-hearted uni project, Overdose ironically became a runaway success and launched Darey headlong into the world of trance production. Since 1998, he has sold well over 2 million trance singles and albums and has been responsible for some of the biggest trance remixes and productions including classics such as Lost Tribe's 'Gamemaster', Binary Finary's '1998', ATB's 'Til I Come', Grace's 'Not Over Yet', Westbam's 'Wizzards of the Sonic', Gabriel's 'Rise', Tilt's 'Invisible'; the list is endless. Darey has also headlined the massively successful Euphoria series for 5 years and has had many UK chart hits including the top ten smash 'Beautiful' and 'Liberation (Fly like an Angel)'.
