Speaking of the single, dj poolboi tells us that ‘take me far away’ is “One of the first tracks I wrote for the new album “stay just a little while longer” almost 2 years ago. I wanted to expand my sound into new areas of emotion and genre, and experiment with different instruments to capture a feeling of frenetic dissociation I began to feel at the time of its writing. I wrote it out of a need to begin a new era in my music and my life”
“With the new wave of lo-fi hip-hop setting a relaxed soundtrack across the world, there are not many artists that do it quite as rapturously as Austin, Texas-based artist dj poolboi.” –EARMILK
“He goes by the name dj poolboi and something that’s quite paradoxical is the somewhat tongue-in-cheek name, compared to the depth and the emotion conveyed within his craft.” –Stereofox
