Listen: Thievery Corporation’s own Rob Garza remixes “Depth of My Soul”, plus tour dates

    On April 1st, Thievery Corporation will release their seventh studio album, Saudadevia their own ESL Music label. The record sees the D.C. DJ duo returning to their Bossa Nova roots, as demonstrated by the lead single “Depth of My Soul”.

    The Shana Halligan-aided song is a twinkling jazz number primed for an old cinematic classic or a Bond flick. Now, Thievery Corp’s own Rob Garza has remixed the track and given it a whole new feel. Most of Halligan’s lyrics are cut entirely, save for an echoing loop of the track title. The words haunt your headphones as spiraling synths are pushed into the abyss by a pulsating rhythm. What was a sultry number for slow dancing in a smoky room is transformed into a trippy affair more fitting for sweat, laser lights and, well, smoke. Listen in below.

    Thievery Corporation have also revealed their first string of tour dates supporting Saudade. Things kick off April 27th at Counterpoint Music Festival and currently wrap with stops at Georgia’s FloydFest and Canada’s Squamish Festival. See their current itinerary below.
