Since graduating from UMT HarmonyX (aka Matthew Scott) has performed on the UMT: Emerging stage at Evolution Weekender and has appeared at nights across Newcastle including Turbulence. Not only this but HarmonyX has started running his own club nights One Hour One DJ and blog for upcoming mixes. HarmonyX's mixes effortlessly ease between the brighter and darker edges of Drum and Bass, switching from an opening session worthy of a chillout session to brooding, bass heavy mixes.
