Noah D might be one of our favorite dance music producers from the United States. While he's known as one of the bass music scene's shining stars currently, we first heard him in the late 2000s dropping drum & bass bangers for imprints like Renegade Recordings, Trouble on Vinyl, and Dieselboy's Human Imprint. We weren't surprised when he started dabbling in dubstep, as he had already been providing dub-wise tracks for a while, but it seems like his transition to dubstep felt more at home to both himself, and to listeners.

Since that move, dubstep support came from everywhere: DJ Hatcha, N-Type, Skream, Bassnectar, and many more. He has since signed to LA's SMOG label who releases his Perspective album in 2012. This past December saw him providing a vast amount of dubby sounds on his Fire Alarm EP, which we highly recommend if you don't want the brash, in-your-face dubstep that is the champion sound stateside.

For his "Five Tracks," Noah D speaks on his background; he gives us tunes that influenced his drum & bass side, what got him into dubstep, and one classic hip-hop track that you all should know. Here are Five Tracks, from Noah D.
