Since the release of his debut single “Cross The Dancefloor,” Treasure Fingers has been working his 24k digits non-stop to create some of the most exciting and truly funky electronic music of the past few years. Whether on remixes for pop upstarts (Miike Snow, Little Boots, Chromeo), indie dance heroes (Tensnake, Classixx, Fred Falke & Burns) or his own original tracks, each new tune reveals another side of his personality and showcases a midas touch that expertly blends elements of house, disco, R&B and more, anchored by a decade of road-tested DJ knowledge and Brooklyn-via-ATL swagger.
“Keep Up” is the latest gem to emerge from the Treasure Fingers dance lab: four minutes of vocoder funk and throwback freestyle drums that feel right on time thanks to Treasure Fingers’ clever arrangements and the candy-sweet vocals of newcomer Haley Small. “Keep Up” made it’s first appearance as the lead track on the Fool’s Gold compilation LP and is now backed by huge remixes from Jackson (Warp) who delves into previously uncharted big-room territory with his synthed out “Uro Trans” and “Ejack” mixes, and house legend Kenny Dope (Masters At Work), who nods to his NYC classics with a massive and appropriately titled “Rowdy Remix” sure to set fire to late nights everywhere.
