We all are familiar with the one and only DJ AM, but who will be the next big time DJ to hit the scene? With varieties of music tracks being spun at clubs, parties, and on the radio these days, wouldn’t one want to know who the performer behind this music is? DJ Miles is not just your ordinary DJ. This disk jockey lives a double life as a student by day, and DJ by night.
Growing up in a musically influenced home, his dad first introduced him to the music business as his father played in the band, The Sound Company. Miles is proud to have grown up with music starting at a young age as he comments “It’s in my blood.” DJ Miles started by assisting his father at bar mitzvahs and weddings, which has now led to spinning at the hottest events in Los Angeles and Orange County. He is now able to score supreme jobs such as performing on a regular basis at local Southern California clubs such as Hollywood’s Les Deux, as well as playing with notable artists like E-40, DJ Felli Fel, Kaba Modern from MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, and several others.
This nineteen year old DJ’s career has just kicked into gear, yet many opportunities are set for him in the future. DJ Miles has realized that starting from the bottom with bar mitzvahs every weekend has truly helped him out as it has given him a solid foundation with knowing when to play the right song at the right time. As DJ Miles puts it, “DJs play incredible songs, they have good ears for good music, but it is about playing those songs at the right time. You can get people to a certain point and play whatever you want, but you gotta take passion in the song.” It is apparent that Miles has a definite advantage over other DJs. Besides being able to play the right song at the right time unlike other DJs, Miles has strongly shown that passion is the number one factor. He is keen about the emotion he puts into his music as he says, “I get a feeling in my heart where I could just play anything I want and people will just love it. I can feel so much emotion in my music, it’s incredible. The thing about some guys is that there is not any emotion involved in it. For me, there’s so much emotion involved in it and it makes a difference and people can see that.” His energy clearly glowed in the interview as he couldn’t stop talking about his love for his job. There are tons of performers who share their music with the world, but there are only a few who have a radiant spirit that no one can stop, and DJ Miles has surely proven to be one of the few.
Speaking with Miles, his passion for music was unquestionable as he profoundly expressed his zeal by saying, “I know I said passion a thousand times but music is a passion, not a job. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. This is what I love to do, I love it, I can’t even explain it.”
