For more than 20 years, DJs/producers Rob Garza and Eric Hilton have, with assists from a whole society of avid collaborators, invited listeners on the global musical journey that is Thievery Corporation. The duo’s supremely chill electronic music ranges in flavor and styles from album to album, but they never fail to find a hazy sweet spot between stoned-out relaxation vibes and intimations of the dance floor. Using a mind-blowingly diverse spectrum of samples, Thievery Corporation offers up a sound that includes elements of dub, acid jazz, reggae, Indian classical, hip-hop, bossa nova and more. The duo’s recently released tenth album, The Temple of I & I, explores familiar and outré sounds from Jamaica and beyond.
