“Take Me Away” by UK producer @MaffBoothroyd is a riveting bass thumper with lots of classic house inspiration

MAFF BOOTHROYD, “Take Me Away”

Maff Boothroyd is known in the UK as a club and event promoter, as well as a producer and DJ.  And while his previous music has also found enough traction from some Asian audiences, it’s a diverse song like “Take Me Away” that could open doors in other major markets.  It’s a riveting bass thumper that is set in motion from its first note, and doesn’t let up.  No hidden agendas here, “Take Me Away” is a bona fide club jam that will add sizzle in the momentum of a deep house set.  You can hear many familiar classic house influences particularly from the 90’s which give the arrangement a lot of welcome warmth.  Don’t be surprised to hear “Take Me Away” creep into sets throughout festival season.

Escape and dance to “Take Me Away”, courtesy of Chicago’s CHO @petechosen with singer Brittany Foster

CHO and Brittany Foster, “Take Me Away” (free DL)

Following last year’s slice of pre-Hallowe’en fun with “Howlin'”, Chicago’s CHO is back with a more pop-oriented dance sound with “Take Me Away”.  Despite a rather uncharacteristic start, “Take Me Away” builds into an uplifting anthem of sorts for putting aside the troubles of today and getting away, to somewhere, anywhere, maybe a dance club, to recharge and live your life another way for a while.  Brittany Foster has nice touches of soul and grit in her vocal to make the song real and honest.  CHO’s production and synth work is on point, just the song itself to me could have been about 30 seconds shorter.  Nonetheless, with those extra few choruses you’ll be humming “Take Me Away” long after it’s over.  Download it for free while you can at the link above.
