Rob Garza and Eric Hilton met at Eighteenth Street Lounge in May 1995. They were introduced by a mutual friend and proceeded to discuss their admiration for the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim and the 60's bossa sound. Weeks later, in a home studio, they began to work on the music that would launch Thievery Corporation. After several early 12“ singles, Thievery Corporation released Sounds From the Thievery Hi-Fi on ESL Music. That record is already considered by most to be a classic of the new electronic era.

After a remix compilation and a stellar DJ Kicks session, Thievery Corporation have completed a new long player, The Mirror Conspiracy. While this too promises to be a classic, The Mirror Conspiracy finds Thievery Corporation raising the stakes with a more intricate production style, expressing even more subtleties in their sound than ever before.

”We wanted to approach this record as a complete work and create a record that flows well from beginning to end,“ explains Hilton. ”We've always been most inspired by older forms of music like soundtracks, jazz, bossa nova, dub, and the like. I think you can really hear these influences in this new album.“

Released in August of 2000, The Mirror Conspiracy garnered accolades from both dedicated and popular music publications alike. Subsequent releases include a 10” remix of Nicola Conte's Bossa Per Due, as well as the Focus on Sight 10".

Garza and Hilton have recently been in ESL Studios working on songs for their next full-length record. In addition, they are currently mixing and compiling the new Eighteenth Street Lounge Soundtrack CD entitled The Out Sound, which is due for a late Spring release. A compilation of Thievery Corporation's favorites from the seminal jazz label Verve is in the works. Verve has also asked Garza and Hilton to do a remix of their favorite Astrud Gilberto song - a hard choice indeed!
