WALDORF HOTEL – THIEVERY CORPORATION DJ SET WITH ROB GARZA

DECEMBER 16TH THE WALDORF HOTEL PRESENTS A DJ SET BY THIEVERY CORPORATION’S ROB GARZA

On Friday Dec 16th, The Waldorf Hotel presents a DJ set by Thievery Corporation’s Rob Garza as part of a massive multi-room weekend party. Rob Garza’s DJ style carries the energy of his early punk roots and blurs the boundaries of rock, breaks, future-bossa, dub and other mind-altering psychotropic sounds. Besides seven studio albums and hundreds of compilations, singles and mixes with Thievery Corporation; Rob Garza’s ESL Music label has produced albums for artists like Federico Aubele, Ancient Astronauts, Ursula 1000, Ocote Soul Sounds, Nicodemus and many others. Rob has also recorded and toured with figures like Paul Mccartney, Massive Attack, Perry Farrell, David Byrne and Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips.

Thievery Corporation (Rob Garza and Eric Hilton) rewrote the book on so-called lounge music, tossing dub, trip hop, jazz and world groove into a musical blender. Their progressive political anti-war stances are carried with abstract, instrumental mid-tempo dance music that has influenced an empire of like minded artists, DJs and fans around the globe. He’s be joined by local favourite Genie.
