Matthew Jonathan "Matt" Darey (born 29 November 1968) is an English trance music producer and a member of Lost Tribe. He is known for his work in the trance series and for 'Gamemaster' (as Lost Tribe) and his remixes of Agnelli & Nelson's "El Niño". In 2005, his first major US albums, an EP, Point Zero (featuring the Li Kwan song of the same name), and a double album, Upfront Trance, were released. Matt has sold over two million albums and singles with numerous top 10 and top 20 chart hits.

Darey frequently performs his trance sets at UK clubs such as Gatecrasher and Slinky, and over the internet through a monthly show on Digitally Imported's European Trance station. On 13 August 2005, he debuted a new show on Digitally Imported called Nocturnal, which became a weekly show in April 2006.

Darey owns a record label, Darey Products, featuring releases from himself and upcoming artists.

In the end of 2015, he made the decision to change his stage name to Matt Nouveau, due to the deeper style of music he produces now.
