August 2012 brings the highly anticipated debut album by Matt Darey. Matt Darey is widely known and acknowledged as one of the respected trailblazers in the worldwide EDM scene. For more than a decade, Matt has steadily built and reinforced his stellar reputation through his solid productions, blazing live sets, his international radio show ‘Nocturnal’ and the weekly podcast broadcast in over 135 cities in 35 countries. Every week without fail sees up to 80,000 downloads of his Nocturnal radio shows including his high profile radio partner Sirius in the US and 6 other National broadcasts.
The lead single and video off the ‘Blossom & Decay’ album is ‘Hold Your Breath’ featuring Leah, out on Armada’s S107 label. The single was done in the UK and the video directed by Ciro shot in exotic locations and clubs in Hong Kong. The album is full of lush collaborations, pumping remixes, and genre bending originals.
The joining of Matt Darey and Armada, the world’s premier Dance label is a pivotal point in the career of this talented musician. By signing to Armada Music, Darey declares that he is ripe for new, musical adventures and collaborations. Even though he can look back on his years of musical exploits and success with releases ranging from breaks to house, trance, progressive and the hybrid genre of rocktronica coupled with hit-singles ‘Beautiful’, ‘Liberation’, ‘See The Sun’ and numerous chart topping remixes including ‘Gabriel – Rise’, ‘ATB – Till I Come’ and ‘Grace – Not Over Yet’. Matt sees this release as the culmination of everything that he has done before. Looking back should be quite fullfilling for Matt, he says it best: “It is truly while looking forward I can see my musical journey is really still beginning.”
