Treasure Fingers at the Gothic Theatre

I'm a sucker for a great name, and I don't think I've ever heard as perfect a DJ moniker as Treasure Fingers. The fingers in question belong to Ashley Jones, a man who's already had a fair amount of success as part of Evol Intent, one of the jungle scene's premier production outfits in the U.S. Not content to rest on his laurels, Jones has opened up the playbook for his turn as Treasure Fingers. There may be a hint of his drum-and-bass roots, but Fingers' aesthetic absorbs everything and spits out a mind-fucking mélange of a mix, a dance-floor diversion that destroys the lines among wildly divergent styles. Everything and anything is fair game, from Daft Punk and Justice to Architecture in Helsinki and Squarepusher. It's an approach that might make dance-music purists sneer, but goddamn if it isn't a stupid amount of grin-inducing, butt-shaking fun. Take a listen to the free mixes at TreasureFingers.com, then head down to the Gothic Theatre on Friday, January 9, to see him live.
