Cake Eater. Cat Lover. Music Maker.
DJ Booma is ultimately the creative outlet and creation of Miles Lentz. Born in 1991 and named after Miles Davis, his early years were Influenced by listening to Blues, Bluegrass and Folk music performed by his father Kevin Lentz. "My dad listened to a lot of Jazz and Blues, guys like Herbie Hancock and Louis Armstrong" says Miles. Naturally he was inspired at a very young age to pick up any instrument, and happily indulge in teaching himself how to use it.
2014. Miles has taken on a new identity, Booma has immersed into the local music scene. The result? An explosive fusion of old school funk & acoustic recordings along with years of unique sound design have helped Booma to cultivate and sculpt a unique sound. His musical knowledge has grown over the years and now has experience playing a number of different instruments that he uses to create and record his own samples for production. Heavily indulged into the art of mixing and the world of controllers as well, Booma's live sets are known to be as diverse as they are powerful. He performs live using a 49 key Midi keyboard, Ableton Push controller, and Korg Kaoss Pad to make smooth, meaningful, and improvisational on-the-fly transitions that can be sure to turn any room packed full of people into a party.
Just a few years back in 2009 Booma was introduced to the EDM scene and an instant attraction to the lights, people, and energizing yet somehow soothing beats took him over. "I remember going to my first show in Detroit, it was a Cirque Du Womp event at the Majestic, I think K@dog was playing. That was honestly a night that changed my life". Largely inspired by living with a close friend/local producer Ishka, Booma was created in an attempt to start producing his own music electronically in Ableton Live. He didn't know it back then, but it was that creation that launched him deep into his mind, expressing powerful hidden emotions and ideas through his music.
Since completion of WCC's Audio Engineering program, Booma has expanded even more. Collecting and creating sounds and samples from scratch has helped him build a profound library of unique and powerful sounds. Constantly adding to his digital workstation, Miles has Invested countless hours and money on music software, instruments, and hardware. He is constantly searching for new and unique ways to create his sound.
