Over the last three years, LA bass beast Bare has slowly dropped a ton of heaters. Anyone who can get artists like Borgore, Dieselboy, and Reid Speed excited (as well as drop a stunning EP for Scion A/V) is one to take notice of. His new material has smashed the Beatport charts whenever they touch down, and as of late he's taken to applying these bass-fueled sensibilities to the trap scene, opening up his palette to a whole new way of producing. Dude's also a phenomenal DJ, one who's plan when he touches the decks is to continuously hurt you with the freshest cuts in his arsenal.

For his contribution to our Five Tracks series, Bare has highlighted songs that have helped him as a producer. Not so much in jacking ideas, but seeing the world of music differently, and helping him find his way in his own productions. You get some Tool, some trap, and some surprises. We welcome you to Bare's Five Tracks.
