Thievery Corporation

Debuting in the mid-'90s, Washington, D.C.'s Thievery Corporation became one of the most popular acts associated with chilled-out, lounge-friendly electronic music. Initially known for making abstract, instrumental, midtempo dance music whose classification fell somewhere between trip hop and acid jazz, their sound expanded to include vocalists and live instrumentation on 2000's The Mirror Conspiracy, which was heavily influenced by bossa nova and soul. From 2002's The Richest Man in Babylon onward, their albums became increasingly more political, reflecting their antiwar stance in addition to their appreciation of all of the world's cultures. Likewise, their music has explored several additional influences and genres, including Indian classical, hip-hop, and reggae. Following the dark psychedelia of 2005's The Cosmic Game, 2008's Radio Retaliation was a protest album incorporating styles such as Afrobeat and go-go, and the Jamaica-recorded The Temple of I & I (2017) was devoted to dub and reggae. 2020's Symphonik saw them rework live favorites with Prague's FILMharmonic Orchestra.
