Thievery Corp Biography:

Thievery Corp is a duo composed of Eric Hilton and Rob Garza. The duo was formed in Washington D.C., in which both referred to as the real Babylon. Hilton grew up in suburban Maryland, playing guitar under the influence of punk and all it ushered in; first rocking around with a pre-teen garage band, then warmed by the glow of the District's hardcore revolutionaries, Minor Threat.

Eric Hilton was sonically liberated by UK two-tone crews such as the Specials and Brit-soul sides such as the Style Council, after cutting his teeth on DC and UK punk. After checking the references of those bands, he was turned on by the roots and soul music of Jamaica and America. His first deejay gig was playing ska and Northern Soul as an opener for his friend's Mod band. Later, he asked to spin house music at DC's top super-club of the '80s, the Fifth Column. By the early 90's he helped throw a warehouse weekly called Exodus, where Hilton tapped a young deejay Dubfire to spin a multi-culti mix of hip-hop, soul jazz, dancehall and dub.

On the other hand, Rob Garza’s youthful existence involved digging into his parents’ collection of knowingly picked, adult classics; Henry Mancini, Sam Cooke, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, followed by immersion into the weirder shades of atmospheric rock and the industrial side of life. He was making beats in his own basement studio, by the end of high school, for unsigned rappers, while studying classical piano.

During the summer of 1995, Rob Garza and Eric Hilton finally met at the now-infamous Eighteenth Street Lounge. They bonded over strong drinks, dub, bossa nova and jazz records then decided to see what would come of mixing all these in a recording studio. The two caught the ears of underground deejays with their first two offerings, 2001 Spliff Odyssey and Shaolin Satellite. Thievery Corp has managed to defy the confines of category and creatively tap in to their deep appreciation for by-gone sounds as they deftly re-interpret them in their own innovative fashion.
Eric and Rob have pulled together a varied cast of dancehall toasters, Brazilian percussionists and smoky-voiced chanteuses to create The Cosmic Game. The downbeat revolution may not only get televised, it might get actual airplay. After selling more than a million units independently on their own label, (ESL Music), touring around in all continents, and writing remixes, producing, deejayng, the corporation is fully realizing their sound. The music of this duo is exceptional; artistic through its own creativity. That’s why their listeners can’t get enough of their music. Thievery Corp is really gifted and their music touches the soul of their listeners. In fact, the songs from their albums are as follows:
