We are proud to announce the debut album from one of drum & bass’s most esteemed sonic craftsmen ‘Makoto’. A true heritage artist who has been moulding breakbeats and basslines for beyond a decade, it’s a complete pleasure to deliver ‘Salvation’, a pure bouquet of musical grace and refinement. A fusion of Makoto’s trademark rusticism is gelled with contemporary flair yet remaining consistent with Hospitals overarching ethos. This album will be one for any avid collector worth their salt. Featuring collaborations with DRS, Karina Ramage and fellow jungle craftsmen A-Sides, the release is broad and delicate, but still delivers gritty undertones where necessary.
Makoto is far from a new kid on the block and his experience shines through in the depth of his music. Entrenched in soul and as friendly in the headphones as it is on the dancefloor, this dualism operates very much in line with how we feel drum & bass should be. Serious soul food, yet it can still get your feet moving.
Already having an enriched history across Good Looking and his own imprint Human Elements, Makoto is a leader in the art of funk, soul and jazz entrenched drum & bass. Following his recent European tour Makoto will make a welcomed return to our shores this summer at Mysteryland, Lockdown Festival and Hospitality In The Park.
