Mario De Los Santos, also known as Telescope Thieves, is a lo-fi, downbeat artist that oddly enough began his musical career as a rapper. The Miami native later segued into making his own music which he found to be much more creatively fulfilling. Santos currently plays keys for an Alternative Rock band, Morning War, and Telescope Thieves is his Sunday afternoon side project that incorporates his hip-hop influences with unconventional vocal and instrumental samples. He describes his music to be experimental lo-fi abstracted by trip-hop that creates original downtempo beats. To date, Telescope Thieves has digitally released “Bloom” under AvantRoots and will be releasing his new EP “Interstellar Alchemy” later this year.
