06S feat. Makoto

One of the most internationally feted artists in Japanese drum'n'bass, Makoto Shimizu (plain old Makoto for short) signed to LTJ Bukem's Good Looking Records in 1999, and went on to rack up releases on labels run by genre luminaries such as DJ Zinc, DJ Marky and Fabio. His latest album, Souled Out, is being released on new imprint Human Elements, and it bears only the occasional trace of straightforward drum'n'bass: tracks are just as likely to veer off into breakbeats, bass music and electro funk. There's no telling what he'll play at the release party at Womb, though resident DJs Aki, Velocity and Shintaro should be able to supply the requisite breakdowns and rewinds if Makoto himself chooses not to.
