Radio Retaliation: Thievery Corporation

The title of the latest release from this Washington-based DJ/production duo refers to what they see as a lack of musical and informational freedom on the airwaves as the world of radio becomes increasingly homogenised by corporate consolidation.

Inspired by the uncompromising political music of groups like The Clash, Public Enemy and Fela Kuti, this is music with a message. The cover artwork featuring a masked Mexican Zapatista fighter says it all. Featuring guest appearances from Femi Kuti, Seu Jorge and Anoushka Shankar, this is seriously modern, seriously thought-provoking music. Power to the people.
