Treasure Fingers, aka Ashley Jones, certainly has the Midas touch, though unforuntately we lied about the free gold.
For a start the US producer has charmed labels as diverse as A-Trak’s Fool's Gold (so there is gold of sorts) and Defected with a sound that borrows from electro, disco and even good piano-led ‘ardcore as on DJmag favourite ‘It’s Love’.
Then there’s the high profile radio support lining up to play his tracks, from Annie Mac to Pete Tong, remixes of everyone from Chromeo to Groove Armada, and his ability to divine underground precious metals by putting together and following his little fingers (OK, we made that last one up too).
He has a new single ‘Rooftop Revival’ out on the increasingly prolific Scion but this being the music biz 2011, he’s also giving away a free track, the very shapely yet comforting ‘Take My Hand’, which is available via Facebook, and a new mix on Soundcloud.
Watch out too for his forthcoming collaborations with Malente, ‘Crusaders’ and ‘Au Revue’, coming out through Defected early next year.
