Rob Garza - Remixes LP
Available May 28th, 2013
In demand due to the prestige of his work as one half of pioneering electronic music duo Thievery Corporation, recording artist, producer, and DJ Rob Garza is releasing his labor of love- a compilation of remixes from across the musical landscape. What began as an exercise in creative output and new musical directions has become a collection of over a dozen epitomic compositions presented in a new light on Garza’s Remixes. On this new solo release, Garza delivers infectious remixes of tracks by deep-house DJ Miguel Migs, Afro-Peruvian/electronica act Novalima, Latin-influenced neo-soul act AM & Shawn Lee, dancehall veteran Sleepy Wonder, ambient musician Tycho, and electro-chanteuse Shana Halligan. Also featured are Garza’s remixes of Gogol Bordello’s “Through the Roof and Underground” and Federico Aubele’s “No One”—as well as a reworking of Thievery Corporation’s fiery, Afrobeat-infused “Vampires” with San Francisco-based collective Afrolicious.
Rob Garza Bio
As one half of electronic music pioneers/producers Thievery Corporation, he has been at the forefront of music and has traveled the globe performing, remixing, djing, recording and composing.
Since Garza’s recent relocation to San Francisco, he has begun a re-exploration of his love for electronic music and beats focusing on Nu-Disco, Cosmic Boogie while keeping very groove oriented and outer-national based rhythms. Recently he has been djing and remixing, taking things to an even more spaced out and trippy level.
