INTERVIEW: ROB GARZA, THIEVERY CORPORATION – February 2018
By Shane Pinnegar

Through 10 remarkable studio albums spanning over the past 22 years Washington D.C. duo Thievery Corporation have created a unique (though much-copied) electronic chillout sound peppered with influences ranging from bossa nova to dub reggae, acid jazz to hip hop, and Middle Eastern and Indian elements.

This writer first heard Thievery Corporation in a trippy-hippy shop in Cambridge, England, on a rare day off from chef work in 1997. I left the shop, but the music was so beguiling, so hypnotic, that it drew me back in to ask who was responsible for such cool tunes. I immediately went next door to HMV and bought the album – the duo’s debut, Sounds From The Thievery Hi-Fi.

Rather than hearing the band’s blend of electronica, DJing, cool vibes and world music on the radio, Rob Garza, with a warm and appreciative laugh, confirms that more people get into the band as organically as I did.
