After 15 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 ‘Gabrielle – Rise’, ‘ATB – Till I Come’ and ‘Grace – Not Over Yet’, Matt Darey declares that he is ripe for new, musical adventures and collaborations. As the culmination of everything he has done before, he presents his debut album, Blossom & Decay. Looking back should be quite fulfilling for Matt, he says it best: “It is truly while looking forward I can see my musical journey is really still beginning.”

Matt Darey is widely known and acknowledged as one of the respected trailblazers in the worldwide EDM scene. Over the last decade and a half, Matt has steadily built and reinforced his solid reputation through his stellar productions, blazing live sets, his international radio show ‘Nocturnal’ and the weekly podcast broadcast in over 135 cities in 35 countries.

Blossom & Decay gathers all those years of musical involvement, passion for the groove and feel for melody. It tells you about Matt’s love for deep progressive, breaths the rhythm of a melodic tide and washes over with alluring soundscapes, all driven by the beat. Featuring vocals by the likes of Kate Louise Smith, Leah, Ashley Tomberlin, Kirsty Thirsk, Sir Adrian and others, you’ll be led by soulful lyrics and thought-provoking songwriting. Matt Darey’s album is full of lush collaborations, pumping remixes and genre bending originals.
