Release Athens 2024 welcomes Thievery Corporation and Black Pumas on Tuesday, July 9th, at Plateia Nerou, in a day dedicated to the sounds of downtempo / dub / electronica and soul. The former are well known and loved by Greek music fans, the latter are performing in Greece for the first time, in one of the few shows taking place in Europe this summer, and together guarantee one of the most important shows of the year. Alongside them, the New York supergroup, the magnificent The Budos Band.

Thievery Corporation, the groundbreaking duo from Washington, have been a mainstay of electronic music for years, with an extensive array of influences ranging from dub/reggae traditions to jazz and 60s bossanova. Formed in 1995 by Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, they have not only become one of the most successful acts in the genre, but have also defined the downtempo/trip-hop scene with their innovative productions and outstanding songs.
Their career began with the now classic “Sounds From The Thievery Hi-Fi” (1996), which laid the foundation for their signature sound and for what was to follow. “Mirror Conspiracy” (2000), “Richest Man In Babylon” (2002), “The Cosmic Game” (2005) and the more recent “The Temple of I & I” (2017) and “Treasures From the Temple” (2018) have all been praised by the music press, while the duo have gained a dedicated audience that now follows them every step of the way.
Throughout their three-decade career, Thievery Corporation have become renowned for their electrifying live performances, conquering the world’s biggest stages and captivating audiences with their unique and ever-evolving sound.

Black Pumas were formed in Texas in 2017 by singer-songwriter Eric Burton and guitarist-producer Adrian Quesada. They burst onto the scene in 2019 with their self-titled debut album, which was not only recognised as one of the top releases of the year, but was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Album of the Year.
Combining elements of soul, funk, R&B and psychedelic rock, the Black Pumas, thanks to Burton’s wonderful vocals and Quesada’s masterful arrangements, managed to collect six more Grammy nominations in a short period of time, release some of the best songs of recent years (“Colors”, “Black Moon Rising”, “Fire”) and sell out shows across U.S.A. and Europe.
This year, the group is preparing to embark on a new world tour to promote their long-awaited second album, which was released a few weeks ago. “Chronicles of a Diamond” is an impressive new step, full of power, passion and more originality than ever before. The album’s first two singles, “More Than A Love Song” and “Mrs. Postman”, have already surpassed 6 million streams and topped both US and local radio stations.
We are very happy to have the opportunity to enjoy Black Pumas’ first performance in Greece, in one of the few shows they will play in Europe this summer, in a night that we’ll never forget.
