Makoto "Hurts So Much"
- Words: Natalie Kelapire
Ahead of his Another Generation EP, which is due out via Apollo on August 13, Japanese producer Makoto offers the unreleased "Hurts So Much," a bonus cut that is nontheless in line with the sounds available on his forthcoming new record. The track opens softly with simple percussive rhythms, and builds with intensity as the lyrics from which its title comes grow increasingly clear. While the beat gains momentum and the vocals peak, a wave of white noise is thrown over it all, effectively propelling it into a dancefloor-approriate territory rife with funky drum patterns and hauntingly simple synth melodies. And if you feel the urge to hear more of Makoto's production work, take a listen to EP cut "Summer Nights" after the jump.
