Makoto Drum and Bass Mix

December 21, 2009

This mix by Human Element’s Makoto Shimizu is one of the dopest dnb mixes in a minute. From the Redbull Music Academy site:

Based in Tokyo, Makoto Shimizu, better known as simply Makoto, is Japan’s chief Drum’n’Bass ambassador. After completing an Acoustic Engineering major at Nippon University, Makoto first signed with LTJ Bukem’s legendary Good Looking Records back in 1999.

Since then he has gone from strength to strength, releasing a long string of quality music in the form of singles and EP’s, but also on the famous ‘Earth’ and ‘Progression Sessions’ compilation albums. 2003 saw the release of his much anticipated debut album, which was widely praised as the transition of 70’s Soul into the 21st century.

Over the years Makoto has firmly established himself in the ‘hall of fame’ of Drum’n’Bass with a bunch of highly acclaimed tracks and remixes on leading labels such as Renegade, Liquid V, Bingo, Hospital and Innerground. As a DJ, Makoto, together with Deeizm MC has travelled across the world, playing everywhere from the UK and Europe to North America, Brazil, Australia and Asia. His sets are reflecting the inimitable sound that he is known for as a producer – smooth, jazzed-out and by all means soulful.
