Makoto Shimizu, born in 1977 in Tokyo, Japan), professionally known as Makoto is a Japanese drum and bass musician, DJ and actor. Among other distinctives of Makoto's musical style, a heavy influence of 1970s-era soul, funk and jazz fusion can be heard throughout the vast majority of his repertoire. 

Inspired by LTJ Bukem's Logical Progression album and Goldie's Timeless, he began to experiment with his own drum and bass music compositions. His unique style received the attention of LTJ Bukem and his Good Looking Records label, and Makoto was later featured on several of LTJ Bukem's mix CDs.

Knowing all that and a little bit more then this is a big miracle to find out when he is performing in Club Illusion in Tartu! The show was excellent, but since I didn't have my regular camera, then I just had to settle with my brothers iPhone :) but thanks to this I have this wonderful shot of him in the first place!
