A-Trak and Treasure Fingers by Tony Ware 

Wednesday, Jul 15 2009

A producer of insurgent drum 'n' bass as well as adrenalized blog house, Ashley "Treasure Fingers" Jones is Fool's Gold Records' master of tweaked synth-funk. So what makes a proper Fingers banger? Stacked claps on a track percolating with shimmery melodies and synths juddering as if they've been huffing nitrous in an early-'90s warehouse. Treasure Fingers is opening for his label head A-Trak, the multiple- championship–winning turntablist known for his re-edit-enriched, freshly made-from-scratch DJ sets. A-Trak blends Baltimore club and cosmic electro as easily as filter disco and laser-etched hip-house.

    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
