Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation (DJ set)

In addition to the new album, Thievery Corporation will be touring throughout the world in 2012, playing at major festivals, private parties and various other headlining shows.

Since banding together 16 years ago, these independent thinkers have taken a DIY approach to their musical and cultural interests, which has led to the formation of their own record label, ESL Music, through which Thievery Corporation release recordings by a slew of international artists, such as Federico Aubele, Ursula 1000, and Thunderball, as well as their own recordings. The label is run out of the basement of a Gothic-style three-level townhouse in Washington, D.C., that is also home to Thievery Corporation’s recording studio, which is filled with the latest high-tech gear as well as vintage guitars and Moog keyboards. The studio is where the two songwriters and producers have crafted their own output: six studio albums, three compilations, and numerous EP’s and singles – an impressive body of diverse work that has made Thievery Corporation one of the most influential and respected names on the electronic/dance music scene.
