Entertwine: From Miami to DC – how are you liking this transition?
LD: I love both cities. Miami is warmer but I still drive a convertible in DC. Both cities share a love for Dance music and are home to some incredible DJs. Washington DC has accepted our music with open arms. My first album had a much stronger Miami sound. My second album “Run Away” (http://lxeproductions.com/new-album-release-run-away/) was influenced a lot by the mix of cultures here in DC and has a slightly different feel.
ET: Musically, do you find that you’ve developed as an artist in both of these cities? Why?
LD: Yes. In Miami I was influenced by the South American and Caribbean culture. The food, music, and languages played a huge role in creating my music. Last year I took my producer (who is a DC native) to Miami to give him a feel for where I lived. That trip was influential is creating the sound of my first album. DC has a lot of Hop-hop/Rap music and Alexi brings that flare into the songs we create.
ET: Tell us about your current project(s) with singer/songwriter Alexi von Guggenberg. What can listeners expect from this upcoming work?
LD: Right now we are back in the studio and have just released two new singles on I-tunes. “Do Something About It” – https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/do-something-about-it-single/id903924220
We have bunch of crazy new ideas and 2014 is going to be a big year with lots of exciting new music from Boom Boom and G.U.G.G.!! It’s going to be Boombastic!
ET: Who would you say are some of your key influencers when writing, producing, or even performing, and why?
LD: My producer Alexi von Guggenberg can take any idea I have and turn it into a hit. He accepts any thought and finds a way to make something incredible out of it. When I’m performing it’s a combination of all the music I listened to growing up and the ups and downs of life I’ve been through. If you listen to my songs “Nail In The Coffin” or “Run Away” you will understand a lot more about where I come from and what I’ve been through. When performing I feel most free to express who I am and that is really the driving force of my shows. I bring 100% pure Boom Boom to the stage.
ET: How would you describe your sound to an audience unfamiliar with your music?
LD: Dance! It’s a unique blend of infectious Pop, Reggaeton, and Dance music full of catchy hooks and energetic raps.
ET: What does music mean to you? And what do you strive for your audience to get out of your music?
LD: I want my audience to feel free, to live through me and to relate to my experiences. There is a story in every song that everyone can find a part of themselves in. Music is a platform to share my story and heart with the world.
ET: When you aren’t performing, what takes up your free time?
LD: I spend a ton of time in the studio working on new songs and preparing for upcoming event/shows. There is allows a new song in the works. You’re only as good as the last song you’ve put out. It’s never over. I’m continually telling my story as it evolves.
ET: What is next for you in 2014?
LD: I am very interested in expanding my reach. I want everyone in every country to catch the Boom Boom and G.U.G.G. FEVER! 2014 has just begun! Buckle up it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!!! Please like my pages below:
