How many highly successful musical artists do you know that have thrived for 20 years without a radio
hit, a big budget video, or major label backing? Moreover, have managed to do high-profile TV
appearances, own and operate their own independent label since day one, sell several million albums
and continue to expand their fan base across the globe each year. They’ve collaborated with such
uniquely famed artists David Byrne, Perry Farrell, The Flaming Lips, Anushka Shankar, Femi Kuti, Seu
Jorge, Bebel Gilberto, and been featured on major film soundtracks such as Garden State. They’ve
headlined top music festivals, such as Coachella and Lollapalooza, and have influenced a whole
generation of electronic producers and DJs. If you add these elements together, you can arrive at only
one conclusion: Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, aka: Thievery Corporation.

Since 1996, Garza and Hilton have released 8 studio LP’s, 2 remix collections, 2 DJ mix albums, and
continued to perform live on 5 continents. Along their unique musical journey, they have virtually
defined an entire sub-genre of electronic music. And now they’re ready to embark on yet another
journey with the release of their new album, “The Temple of I & I.”

Longtime fans of Thievery Corporation are keenly aware that the duo has been heavily influenced by
Jamaican music. Since their debut LP, “Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi,” the production team has applied a uniquely diverse dub ethos and aesthetic to their music. After paying tribute to bossa nova and easy listening inspirations on their 2014 release, “Saudade,” Hilton and Garza set their sights on the culturally rich and warm musical environs of Port Antonio, Jamaica. There, they dove even deeper into their singular exploration of classic Jamaican sounds for the “The Temple of I & I.” “The innovation, spirit and power of Jamaican music is a constant source of creative manna for us,” explains Hilton. “On the musical map, Jamaica is an entire continent. We could have spent a year there, soaking up the vibes in the air, and constantly being inspired by the strength and resilience of the people.”
