With a musical career including album and single releases on LTJ Bukem’s legendary Good Looking Records imprint, Creative Source, Eastside Records, Innerground Records as well as his own label Human Elements, and musical collaborations with producers such as Zinc, A-Sides, DJ Marky, Greg Packer, vocalists Deeizm or MC Conrad to name but a few, Makoto is a leading figure of the underground scene in Japan and has gone on to be one of the most highly respected artists in the Drum & Bass genre, pushing his unique blend of fast breaks and soul drenched music to every corner of the globe as both a DJ and a producer. Makoto released his highly acclaimed ‘Souled Out’ album at the end of 2011 on Human Elements. The album features many talented vocalists and session musicians and explores various tempos, breakbeats and musical worlds. ‘Souled Out’ is a culmination of the breadth of experience and talent Makoto brings to each track which credits his name. With his first 12” on 7even Recordings, Makoto opens again new musical perspectives, infusing the Amen Break to a 135bpm flex on ‘Different Rhythm’ and his unique soulful treatment to the massive ‘What Do You Want’.
