There aren't many in the game with a discography as big (and impressive) as Matt Darey, a man behind countless anthems and still ruling dance-floors to this day. He continues a great run for A State Of Trance with two brand new uplifting gems which got instant props from the big boss Armin, with title track 'Believe In Me' going straight on 'UR 6'. It's a wonderful showcase of uplifting trance, letting the soaring melodies do the talking and bring the energy. Also well worth a play is the slightly tougher, tech edged 'Oblivion', which we feel will rock the floor even harder. Yet another mammoth release from Darey, how does he do it?
There are very few times where you produce a tune that doesn't fade away or become tired. A man who never seems to do anything but this is Matt Darey, and for his latest on S107 he looks back to 2009's enchanting vocal winner 'See The Sun' (originally under his Urban Astronauts guise, of course). The glorious musical elements of the original and Kate Louise Smiths stunning vocal are still in tact, as Egyptian Hazen Beltagui manages to capture the original essence and emotion whilst bringing a fresher proggy edge, bang up to date for the floors of now. See it more as a fresh lick of paint rather than a whole new trakc. If you want a bit more energy and punch Toby Hedges delivers on both counts with his cut, while completing the package is yet another faultless production from that Russian pair Moonbeam.

With a host of timeless gems holding pride of place in the trace hall of fame, it would be all to easy for someone of Matt Darey's stature to slow down.. There is clearly no chance of that anytime soon as with 'Hold Your Breath' he is back with the biggest tune in some time. Featuring Leah on vocals duties (the essence of all Darey's biggest moments), it is khoMa and David Forbes who both do the damage on their respected remixes with an added punch and attitude to make it a floor winner as well as spine tingler!
Over the past couple of years the anthem machine that is Matt Darey has hopped across multiple labels, but in the closing months of 2011 inked an exclusive deal with Aramda. He has found a very fitting home in S107, and follows 'Hold Your Breath' with another stunning vocal moment. Featuring the dreamy tones of Aelyn (Tenishia, Edu), 'Follow You' is an instantly memorable warm and emotive progressive killer. With a pacier remix from Mila & Phoenix, and a meatier electro edge on The Madisons cut, you will be able to drop this at anytime of night.
