Bang Data
Bang Data
Straight out of the Bay Area, Bang Data comes armed with slick guitar, gritty synth & bass and banging electro-acoustic drums. Their debut full length album “La Sopa” (The Soup), dropping March 13 2012 on Itunes, is loaded with heavy grooves, Samba-Ska-Cumbia and hints of Afro-Electro-Bossanova. Much like its name, La Sopa is a melting pot of rhythms and infectious beats that reflect the band’s backgrounds and the undeniable influence of northern California Hip Hop, Rock and Latin music. “Our sound is like a soup and so are we...shit, if you think about it, so is everybody else in the world...In this day of age, with internet and mobile devices, etc, all these different cultures are meshing together becoming a “sopa”. People are constantly influencing and inspiring each other whether its art, music, politics. the world is one big ass
soup if you ask us!”

Bang Data is formed by Bay Area’s MC Deuce Eclipse on lead vocals, who’s well known by hip-hop fans as an accompanying voice to the legendary Zion I andmusician/producer Juan Manuel Caipo who helped propel the latin alternative music scene in the Bay Area early on in his career. Bang Data was born a side project that quickly shifted into something more while working together with Amplive of Zion I who at the time was producing Deuce’s solo album. Since partnering in 2008, Deuce Eclipse and Caipo, of Nicaraguan and Peruvian heritages respectively, have created music that strikes a chord between what they grew up listening to with their parents and the contemporary influences of life in California. Mixing Rock, Reggae,
Hip-Hop & Latin beats and infusing them with a soulful bilingual (English/Spanish) delivery by Deuce Eclipse, Bang Data has created a sound that is unmistakably theirs. The group has performed with acts such as Calle 13, Ozomatli, Zion I, Natalia Lafourcade, Enanitos Verdes, Panteon Rococo & Chico Trujillo to name a few.

Their debut CD EP “Maldito Carnaval”, featuring seven tracks, was released in the fall of 2009 to rave reviews. Their song “Drivin’ Steady” has been featured as the iTunes Latino Song of the Week. The EP has special guest performances by Karl Perrazzo, from Santana, Steve Bradley from No Doubt and Amplive from Zion-I.

On March 13, Bang Data will make its mark with La Sopa. La Sopa was mixed and produced by Caipo and includes 5 songs from its debut EP, including the self-titled single “Bang Data”, which was featured on A&E’s Emmy® Award winning television drama Breaking Bad plus 9 additional songs including an Afro/Latin Hip Hop version of “Toro Mata”, featuring Peruvian living legend Eva Ayllón. The album will also feature live favorites “ICU” and “Veneno”, Afrobeat-flavored “Sucio Amor” and electro gritty cumbia tracks “Que Se Mueva” and “Bomberos”. La Sopa brings some flavor for everybody. Get it while it’s hot!
Candelaria
Candelaria
In the early days, before space, before time, there was only silence. Then in a flash, there was everything. Out of the chaos of the big bang there arose two forces-one cumbia, one dub. Separated for billions of years , they sped through the galaxy, always separate. Here on Earth, it was soon realized that understanding how to fuse these two elements together was the key to understanding the mysteries the universe. It was the answer to the elusive "Theory of Everything" sought by generations of scientists. All the while, cumbia was waiting with the Cururas in the Colombian rain forest, while the dub found a home in the dancehalls and recording studios of Kingston, Jamaica. Now, the finest scientific and musical minds have been assembled to reunite these two primal forces. Drawing from their expertise in a variety of fields and from the research of those great minds that came before us, Candelaria seeks to create a self-sustaining cumbia/dub fusion reaction. Recent results have been very encouraging
