Being that this tune is now considered an absolute classic by those who are into drum and bass, you’d think there would be more info on its creator, but there really isn’t much out there at all. There’s a DJ Makai from Japan, and being that this song’s legacy is due in no small part to the sample it uses from the seminal ’90s Japanese anime, Ghost in the Shell, it made sense that it was maybe the same person. After a bit of digging, I realized there was no way it was actually the same dude – dates and genres just didn’t add up. Oh well.
The closest I got to identifying them/him was this article from JazzMutant. If any of you guys have any info to add and share, please feel free to do so in the comments.
