Biography

When they met in the mid-1990s, Thievery Corporation’s Eric Hilton and Rob Garza instantly bonded over their shared passion for bossa nova. Dedicating their 1996 debut Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi to bossa nova pioneer Antonio Carlos Jobim, the Washington, D.C.-based duo have spent nearly two decades creating boundary-warping, complexly crafted electronic music partly inspired by bossa ...

Format: Audio CD
A delectable long-player grounded in the diverse and lonely echo chamber of Thievery's stoned east coast vibes but strongly tempered with chic European jazz and bossonova lounge dub.
On "Sounds From The Thievery Hi-Fi" Rob Garza and Eric Hilton throw up a seamless blend of tribal drums, synth and samples in the mould of a more smoked Kruder and Dorfmeister, who incidentally have long championed the Thievery Corporation. The Washington based duo confound with a perfect representation of post acid-house sampling, stealing as their name suggests, from their treasure chest of old, borrowed and new musical ideas. These plundered breaks and beats are sewn together in a smoky multi-layered homage to all things dark and haunting to deliver a devilishly structured debut. Dripping from every pore with a syrupy sophistication "Sounds From The Thievery Hi-Fi" is a must for all fans of things leftfield and down-tempo.

While Thievery Corporation's first full album is less sophisticated than their later outings its rawer, less "crafted" style means that its best tracks have a distinctly more exciting edge. "The Glass Bead Game", "So Vast is the Sky" and ".38.45" just jump out of the speakers with their highly infectious mix of electronica, hip-hop & dub while "Shaolin Satellite's" drivingly addictive beats and multi-layered swathes of organs & sitars put it up there with the very best of the whole electronica/dance scene. Others drift, often much too languidly, between genres giving a rambling and disjointed feel to the album as a whole but, if you're a fan of Thievery Corporation or of high quality downbeat "world" music then what's good on it is too good to miss.

This album comes well recommended for chilling and enjoying quality selections from the grooviest of styles.
The Bass throughout is enough to ensnare you and the worldwide journeys of sound just add to the sophistication.
Top marks !

If you like the Thievery Corporation style (very 'dub', involvement of lots of other talent and masterful blending of different ingredients), then this is for you.

Of all their exquisite albums this is their outstanding masterpiece. Been listening to this for over a decade and am still amazed by how accomplished this work is. Their more recent albums are still great but so much lazier...

If you ever have the chance to see them live do not hesitate for a moment. You will be surprised to see how these guys rock.

Stumbled across this album many moons ago in a hippy/spiritual type shop - only heard the one track and that was me hooked. Anyone that's into down tempo/dub reggae with a jazz flavour will love this. Yes its not as "polished" production wise as some of the later stuff but for me, that makes it all the better.
