Album Review

Given the opportunity to strut their stuff before the wired masses, Thievery Corporation made the most of it, showcasing not only their own music, but that of their ESL labelmate's on this live AOL session mix album. Needless to say, the duo included a clutch of choice numbers from their latest album, The Cosmic Game — the fabulous, dancehall flavored grinder "Warning Shots," the dark and dangerous "Holographic," the propulsive "The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter" (here remixed by Louie Vega), and Govinda's floating-through-the-clouds remix of "Satyam Shivam Sundaram," as well as tossing in their earlier "Language Symbolique" for good measure. Playing before an international audience, the Corporation trot out their world credentials. "Satyam"s Indian influences are barely visible, but there's no doubting Thunderball's, whose "Road to Benares" travels deep into exotic climes. Federico Aubele's brings an equally strong Spanish flavor to the mix with his "Diaraio de Viaje" and "Postales," while Karminsky Experience lounge in the airport and dream of faraway lands watching the "Departures." There's a bit of time travel as well, as the set revisits the days of soul with "Can I Get a Witness," and slides back into the early '60 with Chris Joss' surfy "You've Been Spiked." All told it's an amazingly eclectic group of songs, but Thievery Corporation brilliantly pull it all together with aplomb, wisely paying more attention to the moods than the actual style, which creates the set's wonderful ebb and flow. An excellent performance from a top-notch DJ team.

Break out your Visa

If you're wondering whether this album is as good as other T/C albums, stop wondering...it's BETTER. Grab a glass of wine, roll 'em if you got 'em, and enjoy this tripped out musical journey.

Rob + Eric + Federico + Ursula = Perfection

Thievery Corporation is the reigning artist on this DJ Sessions release, and this is as it should be. Thievery is the essential definition of chill with a series of tracks infused with Middle Eastern sitar and silky French vocals. However, Thievery's personal releases aren't their only bodies of work. They're part of the Eighteenth Street Lounge, a club and record company in D.C. where artists like Ursula 1000 and Federico Aubele collaborate alongside Rob and Eric. If you haven't sampled the Buenos Aires trip that is Aubele, or enjoyed the fruits of auditory pleasure that Ursula 1000 brings, this CD might be enough to make you throw out all your other music and devote yourself to the Thievery lifestyle. Federico's "Gran Hotel Buenos Aires" album is a good starting point, also, if you're craving more.

Thievery Delivers (As Usual)

I don't really think it would come as a suprise to anyone that this release is a solid bit of downtempo goodness. Thievery Corporation has always been at the forefront of the downtempo sound and the AOL DJ Sessions is no exception. I own most of the tracks already, but it was worth buying the whole album to get their full mix, which is a cocktail hour waiting to happen. Kudos to the ESL crew for this tasty mix and to AOL for another forward thinking choice of djs to do their mix session.
