Matt Darey Crown of Thorns Progressive Trance

Matt Darey Crown of Thorns progressive trance featuring Kate Louise Smith (Aurosonic Remix) from his debut artist album, “Blossom & Decay.” Listening to this, I tried to think of a way to describe it. I found an excellent description of the album, which I think illustrates this track beautifully, on the Armada Music website.

‘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.

Here is a one hour portion of Nocturnal 363 on Mixcloud, which includes some of the new tracks. It was an absolute joy to listen.



Trance & Progressive DJ/Producer Andy Moor

Moor Music 194


One of the most revered names in EDM is Andy Moor. He is a pioneer in the progressive trance scene, introducing vocal chops and syncopated bass lines. Two production techniques now commonly used by other trance music DJ/Producers.


He crafted his signature sound aptly described as,


“finely tuned, beautiful melodic soundscapes floating above prominent, clever basslines.”


His style of progressive trance is easily recognizable though not simple. He has remained at the forefront of an ever changing music scene and has remained loyal to his brand of progressive trance and to the fans who love his music. While many others succumb to the whims of a fickle public, Andy Moor has shown high integrity and loyalty to trance and trance music fans.


We can describe Andy Moor as a musical prodigy and an actual musician. He played his first perfect piano piece when he was five years old. By the time he reached the ripe old age of ten, he had learned six more instruments. Three years later, he spun his first record. By nineteen he signed his first label release, and by twenty-one, he was spinning to massive crowds of adoring fans.


Andy Moor combined his genetic musical ability, innate drive, integrity, and loyalty and became one of the biggest names in progressive trance both as a DJ and a producer. This perfect combination is why he will always be an icon in trance music.


Andy Moor’s productions catalog spans back to 1999, with ‘Explorer’ with the UK trance act, Tilt. He worked with Adam White as half of the duo, “Whiteroom” earning praise from Armin van Buuren and Above & Beyond as having the best trance production of 2004. His collaboration with Above & Beyond, “Air For Live,” was named ‘Tune of the Year’ by listeners of Armin van Buuren’s ‘A State of Trance’ radio show as well as ‘Best Underground Dance Track’ at Miami Winter Music Conference and ‘Best Trance Track’ in 2006.


Andy’s co production work as Leama & Moor, a UK melodic progressive house duo on remixes includes Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne, Nelly Furtado, Orbital, Starkid, Brian Eno, Paul Oakenfold, and Tiesto. Their cross genre sound made them the top-rated remix team of the time.


Andy’s collaboration with Somna and singer Amy Kirkpatrick in 2015, “One Thing About You,” marked the 100th release on Andy’s label, AVA Recordings. The track topped the Beatport Trance Chart and dominated dance floors globally.


Another 2015 success was Andy’s “All Gone,” released on Armin’s, ‘Who’s Afraid of 138!’ label. This collaborative effort included the uplifting trance master RAM and the sultry vocals of Christina Novelli.

Andy Moor, aka, Dub Disorder, Dwight van Man, and Sworn, has an impressive library of solo productions. Released on AVA/Armada, “Breaking the Silence Volume 1” is a beautiful compilation of melodic trance released in 2009. Volumes 2 and 3 followed in subsequent years. Andy Moor


“Zero Point One,” the highly acclaimed debut solo album by Andy Moor released in 2012, included artists Meredith Call Carrie Skipper, Sue McLaren, producers Orkidea and Ashley Wallbridge. A genre-crossing symphonic journey of mysterious ambient, vocal melodies, melodic trance to breakbeats and the thick bass of progressive.


In September 2014 Andy Moor reunited with vocalist Betsie Larkin for yet another crowd-pleasing collaboration titled ‘Not Afraid’ following the massive success of their tune


Born of “Love Again” from Zero Point One, the timeless anthem, “Not Afraid” with vocalist Betsie Larkin was released in 2014. Andy found the perfect combination of uplifting vocals, euphoric melodies, and thick progressive bass lines.

Andy’s talent, hard work, and dedication to music have resulted in his productions, which in turn has lead to a loyal fan base spanning the globe. He has performed in such countries as Hungary, Lithuania, Slovakia, Ukraine, China, Singapore, Russia, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Canada, the United States, as well as the UK.


On August 9, 2007, the Moor Music radio show began, and Episode 1  was released. Andy releases an episode on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month. “Less Talk, More Music” is the motto and he delivers the best in trance and progressive. June 23, 2015, marked the milestone Episode 150 with three hours of beautiful trance.


Andy founded AVA Recordings in early 2006 under the parent label Armada. The members include Andy Moor, Somna, Ashley Wallbridge, Tydi, Ben Nicky, David Forbes, Masoud, Jonathan Martin, Sunny Lax, and Joseph Areas. The label focuses on trance and progressive and nurturing new up and coming talent. The AVA Nubreed EP series focuses solely on new talent.
