All Music Guide:
An important figure in the development of dance music, especially trance, U.K. producer and DJ Matt Darey released his first single in 1992, signing to Warner Bros. shortly thereafter and issuing a series of records -- either under his own name or as one of his various aliases (as a member of Lost Tribe, for example) or in collaboration with others -- including 1994's "Point Zero" and 2000's "Beautiful," and the Euphoria series. In 2000 Darey took a break to travel around the world, returning to music in 2003 and starting his own label, Darey Productions. In 2005 the EP Point Zero (which included the title song) came out in the U.S., followed by Upfront Trance, an album of both remixes and originals that the DJ said reflected his club set. In 2007 Nocturnal, a compilation of material from Darey's radio show of the same name, hit shelves.
