If you had a message for aspiring producers, what would that advice be?

Garza: To not listen to other peoples advice. You have to be “sick with it” so to speak. You have to want to do it even if nobody else gets it, kind of like a mad scientist. Even if nobody likes it, the creative process itself is the reward.

Your Calling - Cover.jpg

Rob Garza & Neighbour's, "Your Calling" was first inspired by their sunrise sets at Shambhala Music Festival in 2014. Playing one after the other to thousands of inspired music lovers created the beginnings of their bond. The collaboration moved from the stage to studios in San Francisco and Neighbour's own studio in Vancouver where the creative process flowed naturally. During these studio sessions both Garza and Neighbour learned of one another's affinity for Stee Downes' collaboration with Lovebirds on "Want You In My Soul." His vocal styling can be heard on the title track 'Your Calling,' bringing soulful and witty vibes with a classic delivery.

"Having spent more than two decades in the music industry, Rob Garza has mastered the winter escape. Ahead of the release of his solo EP Palace of Mirrors, the influential co-founder of Thievery Corporation relocated to the heady confines of Jamaica for the latter part of February. The sunshine is sure to help Garza recharge as he preps for solo sets and the 2015 festival season, but it also serves as home base for the first writing and recording sessions behind Thievery Corporation’s forthcoming eighth full-length effort.

Even in paradise, downtime comes at a premium, but Garza doesn’t stress. The Bay Area transplant cherishes his unique role introducing longtime fans to more contemporary electronic soundscapes. These sets place Garza in much more intimate settings, yet the DJ/producer’s studio work still evolves from similar global partnerships that helped shape Thievery Corporation’s signature...

Palace of Mirrors is Magnetic Moons first release. Magnetic Moon is the brainchild of Rob Garza from Thievery Corporation.

Her voice is ethereal and otherworldly, floating on in with a dark-tech house groove. The first remix features Rob’s fellow DC natives, Nadastrom, keeping it deep and sexy. The second remix brings the stylings of UK dwellers Psychemagik, offering up a stellar tripped out floor-groover. “Palace of Mirrors” also features Vasuda, bringing a beautiful and lush transcendental house vibe. The fields of Oaxaca inspired “Blue Agave Fields” and it's deep bass and a desert like dub atmosphere. “Hide the Sunlight” features the voice of Tenerife resident Sutja...

This latest mix entitled Out of Body Workshop is reflective of the sets I’ve been spinning lately melding deep vibes, otherworldly grooves and tripped out synths.

"Thievery Corporporation member Rob Garza's fresh new MIXED BY is a classy-as-fuck take on a lot of the deeper house music going on at the moment. It's a captivating hour of propulsive 4x4 beats, all laden with a certain ominous tone and seamless mixing. He’s titled it his Out of Body Workshop, and I’m typing this as I float ten feet above my self." - Thump

Garza_Headshot2__WebRez_CREDIT Lionel Deluy.jpg

Rob Garza sat down with Om Malik to talk about the current state of music:

"It’s very interesting, how we value music these days. In some way’s music has lost a lot of its value, and the emotional bond that you would have with a record back in the day.

You would put it on, you would read the liner notes, you would spend the afternoon with it. You maybe listen to it a couple times and you would try to understand this particular piece of art. Now what people do — I’m even guilty of it — you have every song that you’ve ever loved on your iPod or iPhone.

I go through and I’ll listen to 30, 40 seconds of 30 different songs without getting to have, that emotional bond that I would if I actually put on a piece of vinyl, and just sit in a room and listen and connect with the whole experience of, say an album, which is kind of a foreign concept today because a lot of it is built on popularity on iTunes or Spotify, which songs are more popular by a particular artist.

That kind of connection doesn’t really exist the way that it did back in the day. With this new...

Saudade.jpeg

Thievery Corporation, one of the most influential and respected names on the electronic/dance music scene, are pleased to announce their seventh studio album, 'Saudade,' their first record devoted entirely to the Brazilian-born genre that first connected the duo.

CLICK HERE TO ORDER

'Saudade' borrows its title from a Portuguese word meaning “a longing for something or someone that is lost, a contented melancholy, or, simply, the presence of absence.” Drawing influence from classic Brazilian performers like Antonio Carlos Jobim, Gal Costa, and Luis Bonfá—along with Serge Gainsbourg, Ennio Morricone, and more modern artists like electro-samba pioneer Isabelle Antena—Saudade achieves its delicate yet deeply sensuous sound with the help of more than a dozen guest musicians. With each track sung by one of five female vocalists (including longtime Thievery cohort LouLou Ghelichkhani, newcomer Elin Melgarejo, Nouvelle Vague singer Karina Zeviani, Argentine chanteuse Natalia Clavier, and former...

There’s many beautiful gems from all corners of the globe, these are the kinds of sounds that inspired Eric and myself when we started Thievery Corporation.
