BOH! is a simulated gun shot noise, used as a positive vocal response to a big tune or massive bassline in the 'drum & bass / jungle' (electronic dance music genre) community.
The term originates from the Jamaican/Reggae culture where a gunshot was used to signal/call a rewind of a big tune. Now, yelling BOH! or BWOH! is a common vocalization used to affirm the selections/sound of the Selectah/DJ.
Drum & Bass MC shouts at a party, "If you want the rewind let me hear you say BOH!" Crowd responds in unison, "BOH!"
Trainspotter standing all night with his arms folded right in front of the DJ booth finally hears an exclusive dubplate he recognizes, yells "BOH SELECTAH!" - and promptly raises his lightah!
