Win FREE Tickets to see Thievery Corporation @ Fox Theatre OAK

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


In 2002 I was 21-years-old and living under a perpetual state of underground hiphop. With the exception of my mother’s Beatles albums slipping in the mix while I got stoned with my Home Depot co-workers, Living Legends, Hiero, BDP, Aesop Rock and Atmosphere were pretty much on continuous loop. But, when I met a hair stylist – through my then means of hustle and delivery system of a certain green product – she happened to be playing Mirror Conspiracy one rainy day.

Hooked from the moment my ears heard that heavy tabla bass beat, fluid synth waves, forward percussion, whispy vocals and a fuckin’ horn section…and it was all happening at once. Long story short, I ended up gettin’ high on my own supply and left an hour later with a burned copy of the CD. 12-years later, I don’t smoke as often and the album is still on my party roster. Good job, Thievery Corp. Good job.
