Acronymapalooza! This Saturday (12/18) the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival kicks off at Music Hall Of Williamsburg / Public Assembly (they’re next door neighbors) with a bounty of FG artists and fam on board to rave out with you: Kid Sister, Treasure Fingers, Kingdom, Sinden and many many more. Get advance tickets at Ticketfly; and if you want to test your luck, Nicky Digital is giving away a pair of passes on his blog.
Today RCRD LBL is sharing a synth-superpowered, thoroughly clubbed out remix by Jackson (of “…And His Computer Band” fame) for Treasure Fingers’ vocoder jam with “Keep Up.”
You can grab it on the full “Keep Up” single, out now on Beatport, iTunes and all other mp3 stores slanging our digital wares. There’s also an even crazier Jackson dub (his “Ejack Mix”) and a reworking by dance legend Kenny Dope, who comes back in grimey NYC shake mode. “Keep Up” also kicks off the Fool’s Gold Vol 1 compilation LP, out now.
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.

As you may have seen on Pitchfork today, our first-ever compilation LP, Fool’s Gold Vol 1 is making its way to you fine people of planet Earth on October 25th (same day as The Suzan LP – they both got bumped to Monday cause of Taylor Swift. Good looking out ma!)
The 14 new tracks on Fool’s Gold Vol 1 are a 3-D look at where FG has been and where we’re going next. “Ray Ban Vision,” A-Trak’s robot-rocking collab with G.O.O.D. Music upstart CyHi Da Prynce, sits comfortably next to Treasure Fingers’ joyous dance pop throwback “Keep Up” and The Suzan’s rollicking cover of Miike Snow’s “Animal,” along with new tracks from other exciting, constantly-evolving talents like Kingdom, Flosstradamus, and even Lil B, who teases his forthcoming EP with the #based bass of “Freeze.”
You will be able to download Vol 1 from all fine music retailers, as well as purchase a limited-edition CD copy (and other FG treats) at Opening Ceremony boutiques worldwide. We are immensely proud to share these new tracks from our family with all of you!
