International Tribe: Makoto21.11.19
International Tribe is a weekly mix series hosted by Thris Tian.
This week’s International Tribe mix comes from Makoto.
Makoto Shimizu, more widely known simply as “Makoto”, is a testament to the international scope and power of electronic music. Born, raised and still based in Tokyo, Makoto was influenced at a young age by a wide variety of music ranging from classical to soul and funk.
Having first come to prominence in 1999 when he was signed to LTJ Bukem’s Good Looking label, Makoto has steadily, consistently carved out his own groove in the world of Drum and Bass, with his trademark expansive jazz and soul-inflected workouts garnering critical praise from all corners. He steps up for the next hour with a deep exploration into the world of D n B.
