Thievery Corporation, or just ordinary theft?

Rob Garza (vroeger op de loonlijst van de C.I.A contraspionage of zoiets) en clubuitbater Eric Hilton worden door een wederzijdse vriend aan mekaar voorgesteld, omwille van hun gedeelde passie voor muziek. Rob en Eric zijn op dat moment allebei met verschillende studioprojecten bezig, maar besluiten het toch samen te proberen en Thievery Corporation ziet het levenslicht.

In 1995 staan Garza en Hilton aan de basis van de succesvolle club in Washington DC: 18th Street Lounge. Het meest opmerkelijke aan de prachtige drie verdiepingen tellende Lounge is de muziek die er in de drie bars en op de enorme patio klinkt: helemaal in de stijl van het label Eighteenth Street Lounge Music.
De liefde voor muziek blijkt uit het geluid dat Thievery Corporation voortbrengt: zeemzoete triphop met accenten uit alle genres die hun platenkast rijk is: latin, jazz, easy listening, dub en zelfs Italiaanse pornosoundtracks. Dat weerspiegelt zich op 'Abductions and Reconstructions' (1999).
Na het tijdloze 'Sounds From the Thievery Hi-Fi', krijgen we in de zomer van 2000 een opvolger: 'The Mirror Conspiracy'.
Naast het remixen van andermans werk hebben de heren het druk met het managen van hun eigen platenhuis Eighteenth Street Lounge Music of het runnen van hun gelijknamige nachtclub in Washington D.C.

Op "The Cosmic Game" (2005) verheft Thievery Corporation lounge tot popmuziek. Op het eerste gehoor lijkt alles vrij braaf en voorspelbaar, maar geleidelijk openbaart zich een wereld van klanken, kleuren, en stemmen. Het album bevat weer lekkere downtempo-deuntjes met invloeden vanuit dub, reggae, bossa nova en wereldmuziek.
Op de CD doet een groot aantal gastmuzikanten mee, zoals Jane's Addiction voorman Perry Farrell ("Revolution Solution") en oud Talking Heads zanger David Byrne ("The Heart's a Lonely Hunter").
