ROB GARZA:

Founding member of music group Thievery Corporation, Rob Garza's career includes decades-worth of accolades as a pioneer of a flourishing electronic music movement. Originally hailing from Washington, DC, Garza's legacy includes the formation of ESL Music, as well as a timeless music catalog that still in rotation today. His infusion of electronic music with the international flavors of dub, trip hop, reggae, and bossa nova gave birth to an new era of sound that has attracted a cult following across the decades. Since relocating to San Francisco, Garza's new experiments take him to the far corners of the globe with sets showcasing the best of Deep House and Nu-Disco.

For Garza - who's devoted much of his life to creating a richly-textured foundation that's defined Thievery Corporation - solo appearances for more intimate audiences inspires new creations based off the culture and styles encountered during his travels. Whether opening for Paul McCartney with Thievery, DJing in Nepal for climbers tackling Mt. Everest, or in more obscure clubs in remote corners of the world, an impeccable taste in music style resonates through the foundation of every show.

For inspiration, Garza continues to mine the sounds he's discovered through traveling the global dance scene. "When I first came to San Francisco, I returned to my electronic roots in the dance community while also spending a great amount of time in Mexico, where there is a great dance music scene" says Garza. "There's so much going on in terms of people taking influences from all these different genreslike house and dub and new wave and discoand putting it all together in a way that's very new and original and inspiring to my own music."

His 2013 "Remixes" album presents a kaleidoscope of his past work with artists like Tycho, Gogol Bordello, Afrolicious, and Federico Aubelle and marked the start of a new chapter in his eternal music odyssey. Later in 2013, Garza teamed up with Canadian deep house producer Neighbour to release "Calle del Espirtu Santo." Inspired by the spirit of his travels in Madrid, Spain, the EP is the first in a series of releases that recount the memories only an international music explorer can tell. Expect more from Garza throughout each season with a series of originals, remixes, videos and collaborations, as well as new Thievery Corporation material in 2014.
