Makoto first gained recognition signing to LTJ Bukem’s coveted Good Looking Records in the late 90s, and has carved his own identity since then for his jazz-influenced drum & bass sound. Having released alongside DJ Marky and on Fabio’s Creative Source label as well as across Bukem’s label, Makoto’s soulful take on the genre falls closest in the liquid funk end of drum & bass. Through the years Makoto’s output remains consistent, which has linked him closely today with the label most synonymous with the liquid sound ??" Hospital Records.
