Buzz72+ went on indefinite hiatus in 2007, after which, Matsukuma started writing and composing music for other artists, including Pour Lui.
In 2011, Matsukuma Kenta founded the music production company SCRAMBLES, which would produce music for almost every WACK-affiliated artist, as well as some external acts.

He left both bands in November 2015 to focus on music production.
In 2016, Kenta formed the band, GHOST ORACLE DRIVE with other SCRAMBLES staff. The group was created to compose and record music for the GOD EATER franchise. The following year he formed Beat mints boyz with his frequent collaborator and WACK CEO Watanabe Junnosuke.
