Thievery Corporation is a Washington, D.C.-based recording artist and DJ duo consisting of Rob Garza and Eric Hilton and their supportingartists. Theirmusic style mixes elements of dub, acid jazz, Indian classical and Brazilian (such as bossa nova) with a lounge aesthetic. Thievery Corporation is on the Eighteenth Street Lounge record label named after the DC club owned by Eric Hilton, but several of theirsingles and EP’sappear on the 4AD and !K7 labels. Formed in the summer of 1995 at D.C.’s Eighteenth Street Lounge. Rob Garza and Lounge co-owner Eric Hilton bonded over club life, dub,bossa novaand jazz records, then decided to see what would come of mixing all these in a recording studio. From this, the duo was born andtheir self started labelEighteenth Street Lounge Music began to emerge on an international level. The duo caught the ears of underground DJ’s with their first two 12” offerings, “Shaolin Satellite” and “2001: a Spliff Odyssey” and with their1997 debutLP, Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi, they had already begun to define a new genre of electronic music and connect with aninternational community oflike-minded souls. Though the terminology has varied (downtempo, chill out, left field and a myriad of otherpermutations), they have maintained theirunique musical standards for the duration of their popularity. In 2002, they released The Richest Man in Babylon on their ESL label. This fifteen track album is similar in sound and timbre to their earlier2000 release,The Mirror Conspiracy, and features performances by vocalists Emiliana Torrini, Pam Bricker, and Loulou. In 2005 they released The Cosmic Game, which has a darker, more psychedelic sound than The Richest Man in Babylon. The album alsofeatured morehigh-profile guest singers on it, including Perry Farrell, David Byrne, and Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips. In 2006, the group released Versions, a selection of remixes done by Thievery Corporation for other artists and toured the United States,playing atLollapalooza. The group released their fifth studio album, Radio Retaliation, on September 23, 2008. The language of the group’s lyrics are as diverse as English, Spanish, French, Persian, Portuguese, Romanian and Hindi. This reflects thegroup’s globalfeel and collaborative structure. « hide
