San Francisco-based Noah D is an electronic music composer and enigmatic and saturated live performer. A producer’s producer, his heavy and hypnotic bass music is preceded by an expectation of the uncommon mastery that comes with over 10 years production experience. While his work can deliver aggressive and substantial tracks, the sound avoids the overt focus on noise that characterizes the harder bass music genres. An expert at slipping from the hard to the smooth and sexy, Noah D carries a history of drum & bass, hip hop, live guitar, and West Coast bass music into the present.
Before 2008, Noah D released on popular Drum & Bass labels such as Renegade Recordings, Human Imprint, Trouble On Vinyl and Pure Vibez and gained support from leading acts in his genre such as DJ Hype and Dieselboy. A year later he received recognition and support from Skream, Bassnectar, N-Type, and Plastician, with play on BBC’s Radio 1, Rinse FM, and Kiss for his anthem track “Seeeriousss.” His pioneering contributions to the now-popular dubstep movement brought a signing to LA-based SMOG records in 2011 with the release of his debut LP in Spring 2012. Noah D’s ‘Perspective’ LP features collaborations from talented vocalists in the areas of hip-hop, dancehall, grime, and r’n’b and showcases the reputation for depth and diversity that precedes him.
While his original productions are designed to become the soundtrack to his fans daily lives, the energy of Noah D’s live show is said to be one of the best in the business. Tuning into the aesthetic that is unique to each crowd and room, performing in the traditional freestyle DJ method is a skill he still enjoys flexing. Every set is different and constantly evolving… moving through various tempos and moods.
