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.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
