staff pick "masquerading as a "laid-back chillout" record, Thievery Corporation's boundary-warping sophomore record seems to get a bad wrap from reviewers online but I can't find any reason why one would outright -dislike- this album. 90s crafted electronic music that paved the way in the sound of lo-fi beats of the last 25 years and a perfect offering for the transition into winter; If there's no real sunshine to be had, the sunshine generated from these tunes will suffice" hunter

When they met in the mid-1990s, Thievery Corporation’s Eric Hilton and Rob Garza instantly bonded over their shared passion for bossa nova. Dedicating their 1996 debut Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi to bossa nova pioneer Antonio Carlos Jobim, the Washington, D.C.-based duo have spent nearly two decades creating boundary-warping, complexly crafted electronic music partly inspired by bossa nova’s intricate rhythms and lush textures. Thievery Corporation launched itself with the two underground hit vinyl singles, Shaolin Satellite and 2001 Spliff Odyssey, followed by their debut album, Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi, and soon became loosely associated with the “trip-hop” scene that had emerged a few years prior in the U.K.

Laid back yet firing, Sounds From The Thievery Hi-Fi was a smoky homage to all things out on the dark side, a multi-textured transformation of Rastafarianism, martial arts and fourth world beats. Where it all began, absolutely essential!
