Thievery Corporation is on the Eighteenth Street Lounge record label named after the DC club owned by Eric Hilton, but several of their singles and EP’s appear on the 4AD and !K7 labels.

Formed in the summer of 1995 at D.C.’s Eighteenth Street Lounge. Rob Garza and Lounge co-owner Eric Hilton bonded over club life, dub, bossa nova and records, then decided to see what would come of mixing all these in a recording studio.

Their 1997 debut LP, Sounds From the Thievery Hi-Fi began to both define a new genre of electronic music and connect with an international community of like-minded souls. Though the terminology has varied (, , left field and a myriad of other permutations), they have maintained their unique musical standards for the duration of their popularity.

    This new album is terrific, so proud they've invested on Brazil's rhythms, which is my homeland.

    Ahhh... Thievery Corporation have made a true bossanova album. I'm enjoying the stripped down change.

    As one of the top listeners... This is the worst album from TC. Monotonous and boring. I have a feeling that if I'd to listen to it 2 times in a row,I'd get an urge to slit my wrists. Depressive and inert, too slow and annoying. Every song is the same as the previous one. Wth happened to TC I loved?!?
