We’re excited to announce that we will be building around a much-needed music scene in the Downtown Santa Barbara area. This first of many events will be headlined by the unmistakable, disco-house demigod Treasure Fingers. In 2008, The Atlanta based DJ/Producer quickly fostered a reputation for his dancy remixes and was signed to A-Trak’s Fools Gold Records. Over the years, Treasure Finger’s name has become synonymous with eclectic, yet tasteful house music. He’s been very much a favorite of ours for years, so we’re excited to host him at the beginning of our SB future. Come out and support the good sound with even better people! Oh by the way, FREE GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES before 11pm.

Good ol’ Treasure Fingers sparks it up with his trademark feel-good house in his Spring Thirteen mix. Throw in some funk, some flavor; shake it up, and chase that sunset chill.

It’s been about a year since I discovered that Disco has made its big return to dancefloors across the nation. The man who led my ears to this discovery is Ashley Jones, better known as Treasure Fingers and one third of Evol Intent. His extensive library of remixes infiltrate your limbs with groove and his original tracks automatically categorize themselves under the ‘feel-good’ genre in iTunes. This year he’s made his way around the globe, showcasing his skills in Europe, Australia, Asia, and opened up shows for A-Trak here in the U.S. We got the opportunity to share a few words before he took the stage at Avalon in Hollywood last Friday, hit the jump to see what he had to say.

A-Trak @ Voyeur (Photo: Mackenzie Bradley)

 

Woke up early Sunday morning to get ready for an adventure I didn’t know I was going to take. I found out about this show when Laidback Luke came to play back to back sets in May. Once at Voyeur and then straight to 4th&B to close out the night. L.E.D. events have a thing for two-a-days, and Fool’s Golds’ A-Trak and Treasure Fingers flew together for this one. I had one goal on Sunday and that was get to San Diego to see two hour sets from the best house DJs I know. My friends were dropping like flies, but Chronic Mncher wised up to the occasion and we made the drive. A-Trak and Treasure fingers were playing at Wave House and then rushing to Voyeur to do San Diego right.

Treasure Fingers was set to go on promptly from 5-7 and A-Trak was to follow from 7-9. Wave House has to be the coolest venue I’ve ever been to. Literally right on Mission Beach, packed with the most beautiful people from wall to wall. Right when you walk in you come up on their massive artificial wave. $40 an hour to ride or free to watch, so I just chilled and jammed to the bumping house until TF came on. We were graced with a straight two hour lounge set filled with the most consistent funk you can get. I will never get tired of it! He filled his set with his remixes of Innerpartysystem’s “It’s Not Getting Any Better” and Classixx “I’ll Get You.” Hey come and tell me do you like bass do ya do ya like bass. And he didn’t let up on his originals from the Lift Me EP. Fully funk-tional set that made the whole trip worth it in that very two hours.

TF set the tone but it was party time when A-Trak manned the decks, and everyone knew it. He never ceases to amaze and you can tell how much fun he’s having every time he spins a fresh set. You can’t fake that stuff. A-Trak played through what seemed to be a perfect Sunday sunset in San Diego and then disappeared to a roaring applause from the satisfied crowd. I had to make moves to catch the boys at Voyeur, so I jumped in the freezing beach showers, club attired myself, and snagged a ride downtown. I was so happy to see that both A-Trak and TF played different and equally amazing sets at both events. It proved that much more to me just how legit they are. A-Trak pumped out banger after banger. “Ray Ban Vision,” throwback tracks like his remix of “Oh!” and of course the Duck Sauce favs “aNYway,” “Barbra Streissand,” and “Big Bad Wolf,” which actually turns out to be much better as a live track than through headphones. Ahwoooooooowoowoowoo. Seeing A-Trak DJ from upstairs where I could see every knob turn, switch flip, record scratch, and beat match put him on a whole new level. He truly is the OGDJ, and I have yet to see his skills topped.

All in all, absolutely awesome day. I love going down to San Diego, because the scene seems to be so much more pure there. EVERYONE was dancing to the point of overwhelming heat and sweatiness, but no one seemed to care. Chants, dance circles, dirty dancing, pounding house music all added to make those two events some of the most fun parties I’ve been to. I’ve seen them both countless times, and I don’t plan on letting up anytime soon. I only wish I had my FlipCam with me to document, but you’re just going to have to see them for yourself next time they come around. I’ll definitely be there when they do, so let’s get down!

Treasure Fingers

I get really excited every time someone that’s really prevalent in the game throws out another track. I’m talkin’ Duck Sauce, Skrillex, Jack Beats, Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP, The Twelves. All the guys that never disappoint and don’t tire of staying active. Treasure Fingers dropped this one on us last weekend, and I could have sworn I put it in the YOLO List, but I guess I just got ahead of myself. Needless to say, I didn’t want to wait until next week to put this out. The less time you’re bumping this track, the less fulfilling your life’s ultimately gonna be. It didn’t hit me at first, and it sounds different than what we’re used to getting from Mr. Fingers, but it still has that classic/revamped, house vibe. A little more attitude this time, though.

Treasure Fingers (aka Ashley Jones) has been bringing the disco heat with his banger remixes for quite sometime now. Treasure Fingers is a fresh addition to A-Trak‘s Fool’s Gold Records along the likes of Chromeo, Crookers, Kid Cudi, LA Riots, Laidback Luke and way more. A-Trak wouldn’t put just anyone on his label, a very talented bunch. He was originally a part of drum and bass band Evol Intent before he decided to take his talents elsewhere. You can hear bits and pieces of his drum and bass backgrounds in this new EP which features three tracks:

1. Lift Me (Original Mix) Delightful Choice!
2. It’s Love (Original Mix)
3. It’s Love Instrumental

The EP may be brief, but it doesn’t fail to bring the uplifting disco/house sound we’re used to getting from him. His remixes have made several YOLO lists, and I’ll continue to add as they come. Be sure to catch him live if you can. His performance could use some work, but his song selection is unreal. Best end to Audiotistic that I could have asked for. Here’s a video I snagged:

BONUS!
