Hailing from Atlanta, transplanted to NYC, and ready to take over the world: Treasure Fingers Treasure Fingers is Audio Viagra (NY Post) For the past four years, the DJ and producer born Ashley Jones has been making it rain in the disco with innovative remixes and original tracks. Jones is far from a new jack, having racked up over a decade of international club experience and studio chops as part of the legendary drum & bass group, Evol Intent. Yet as Treasure Fingers, he’s found a way to merge his diverse influences and deep history into a signature sound, packed with intricate basslines, chopped-up, gritty synth melodies, and party-ready drum breaks. It’s already captured the ears of everyone from Eric Prydz and Miike Snow to house legends Romanthony and Roy Davis JR (all of whom personally requested the Treasure Fingers remix treatment). His amazing new twist on Disco attracted the attention of such labels as Fools Gold, Defected and MOS to name a few. Treasure Fingers “Cross The Dancefloor: "I dj now, and right now this is my favorite song to play. It's a rare underground song" (Will.I.AM’s Favorite Party Starter Track, People Magazine) “Cross The Dancefloor” was Treasure Fingers’ debut, an inescapably catchy, vocoder-laced dance gem that two-steps over genre boundaries. The instant classic received support from A-List DJs around the world such as Erick Morillo, Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Sinden and Kissy Sell Out. Treasure Fingers has kept the momentum going with heavy touring and official remixes for numerous artists including Little Boots (I Am Sound), Chromeo (Vice/Atlantic), Estelle (Atlantic), Empire of the Sun (EMI), Kid Sister (Downtown), Kid Cudi (G.O.O.D/Sony), N.A.S.A (Epitaph), and James Curd (Om) (remix went to #1 on the Beatport Club Chart). A constant favorite on Hype Machine, he has also received amazing support from such blogs as Disco Dust, Boom Boom Chik, Indy Shuffle, Big Stereo and Discobelle to name a few. A new batch of equally funky Treasure Fingers originals & a mix CD are on their way along with tours in North America, Europe, UK, Asia, Australia and South America. These coming after successful tours and gigs with artists Roy Davis Jr, Fake Blood, A-Trak, Chromeo, Laidback Luke, Fred Falke, Felix da Housecat & Benny Benassi, to name a few. Treasure Fingers perfectly captures the sounds that young kids want to hear, while keeping the musicality of songs that the old school cats need. His version of Back Off Move Away is a disco groove that is full of modern synth sounds over such a funky bass line it's nearly impossible not to dance to. One of my favorite remixers at the moment and one of my favorite mixes of my own music to date. (James Curd [Greenskeepers]) What else would you expect from the A-Town original with the Midas touch, who continues to receive accolades and Radio 1 support from heavy hitters Pete Tong, Annie Mac (with a mini mix under his belt), Kissy Sellout, Jaymo & Andy George, all helping Treasure Fingers launch up, up and away into the future with people worldwide shakin’ it cross the dancefloor. "Treasure Fingers is one of America's best Nu Disco outfits. His high end production values, fresh ideas & all round good vibes has ensured we've been fans for sometime!" (Jaymo & Andy George, BBC Radio 1 In New DJs We Trust)
