Band of Burglars...
...or Thievery Corporation.
This is probably Thievery Corporation's most well-known song. You've heard it before; in a store, in a lounge, in a pub, maybe at a spa:
The base of Thievery Corporation is Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, a DJ and production duo who make downtempo. Their roster also includes different vocalists and musicians for their albums and tours.
The whole lounge/downtempo/chillout thing came about because of rave culture; you'd dance all night (and whatever else) and then need some hyper chill music to relax to in the chill-out rooms. That's not when downtempo was 'invented', because it already existed, but that's when it took off - there was an increase in downtempo, lounge, chillout producers, DJs, and an excess of cheesily titled compilations starting in the early to mid 90s. Artists like Kruder & Dorfmeister, Kid Loco, and Thievery Corporation have been at it for a long time (in Thievery Corp's case, since 1995).
Thievery Corporation's new album is called Culture of Fear; it's their sixth studio release. Here's something new from the Corp:
They're at Malkin Bowl tonight! The weather's not nearly as nice as it was for last weekend's Blue Rodeo shows, but this'll be a kind of 'farewell to summer, one last outdoors show' before the real autumn weather blows in. If you're going to tonight's show, gates open at 5:30, the first band, Los Amigos Invisibles, starts at 7, Thievery Corporation is on around 8:15 - and they shut 'er down by 10.
