The long-awaited debut from ATL producer turned BK neighbor Treasure Fingers is finally out, and we are psyched.
“Cross The Dancefloor” has been turning out dancefloors all year long as a pre-release, and this official, newly mixed and mastered version knocks extra hard. We’ve gone and backed it with huge remixes from Laidback Luke, Lifelike and Curses!, along with a handy “Shake-A-Pella” for all your mixing needs. “MASSIF CHUNES!” as they say.
2×12″ gatefold vinyl will be here any day now is available now, and you can also purchase it digitally on all online stores: TTL, Juno, iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else.

Check the full-size giant rave flyer (remember the folding joints?!) here and see full line-up and ticket info here.
