Thievery Corporation

Profil:
American electronic music duo which was formed by Rob Garza and Eric Hilton in 1995. Their music mixes elements of dub, acid jazz, reggae, Indian classical, Middle Eastern music, hip hop, electronica, and Brazilian music, especially bossa nova.

Garza and Hilton met in May 1995 at the Eighteenth Street Lounge in Washington DC. They were introduced by a mutual friend and proceeded to discuss their admiration for the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim, '60s-'70s bossa nova, and jazz. Weeks later, in a home studio, they began to work on the music that would launch Thievery Corporation. After several early 12" singles, Thievery Corporation released their first Lp, "Sounds From the Thievery Hi-Fi" on ESL Music.

Absolutely brilliant work from this duo. Easily the best US electronic outfit in my book to date. Very diverse and authentic elements to their music from a wide variety of global influences. Stellar.

Thievery Corporation are masters of taking sounds and atmospheres from all over the world and making beautiful music collages from them. Hence the name. A duo of Eric Hilton and Rob Garza creates a perfect combination of influences. Latin (samba, bossa nova, pachanga etc.), Jazz, Dub, Lounge, Electronica, Reggae, Traditional sounds from India, Middle East and Africa. The list goes on and on. They are amazing live. This duo doesn't have a genre or a particular style. Recommended for anyone that wants to explore world sounds.

One the finest downtempo/chill electronica artists out there. If you want consistency then these guys are your men. Ever since their first album in 96 'Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi', they have released astoundingly good downtempo albums with an array of fantastic singles. They mix up world music influences, notably Jamaican Dub, Latin, Bosa Nova & Brazilian sounds to perfection,against a backdrop of superb beats. Chill meisters & for my money they have created one of the best albums of 2005, with one of the best songs of this year as well; album - 'The Cosmic Game', single - feat. David Byrne 'The Heart's a Lonely Hunter' - go seek and thou shall be rewarded!

It's true that the Thievery sound from back in the days has gone. Their sounds had that trademark beat to them - a good example is The Assassination - found on the Shaolin Sattelite 12". But in my opnion their style has changed in a credible way - the follow up albums had purpose and massage - and particularly The Richest Man shows evidence of greater depth - even without killer beats. I am looking forward to the new album!

Just compare Thievery's development to that of Glen Bigga Bush (ex Rockers Hi-fi) then and now or that of Dj Cam - not to mention the sickening Moby's.....

All of Thievery Corporation's releases up until the "Lebanese Blonde" 12" and the "Abductions & Reconstructions" remix album are vital for all the downtempo fans out there. And although they weren't the first ones at the game, the fact is that "Sounds From The Thievery Hi-Fi" is an album that set a template for much of the downtempo/lounge/chill-out music that came after. A template that has been rarely (if not never) equaled, because songs like "38.45", "Shaolin Satellite", "The Foundation" et al have a certain something that makes them seem more than fine at any given time. In two words: perennial classics.
"The Mirror Conspiracy", although avoiding the dreaded sophomore slump, doesn't really live up to the expectations, sounding already like the formula is wearing thin. And that is what "The Richest Man In Babylon" really sounds: a project stuck in a rut and, more importantly, making music that does not stand in the pack of many-a-below-average projects in an already over-saturated style. Let's just hope they see the error of their ways...
