Straight out of the San Francisco Bay Area Bang Data is born in early 2008, bringing you a mix of slick and melodic guitar, gritty synth & bass, over banging electro-acoustic rhythms; making this the perfect canvas for Deuce Eclipse’s bilingual rhymes and melodies. Bang Data’s sound is a mash-up of styles combining hints of Latin, Reggae, Hip-Hop & Rock triggering memories of music we once grew up with yet offering a futuristic vision of Latin Alternative music.
Bang Data are Deuce Eclipse on vocals and drummer/producer Juan Manuel Caipo. On stage they are joined by Marco Guzman on bass, Paul Crespo on guitar. They deliver a live performance that is edgy, energetic and contagious; pushing the songs from their debut EP, Maldito Carnaval, even further. 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.
Maldito Carnaval was recorded and mixed by Caipo in Oakland, California and includes 7 songs that take you from a Samba-Ska-Cumbia and Electro-Bossanova to a Synth Bass Heavy “Stooges” infested beat. Also featured is a heartfelt arrangement of Piero’s ’70’s Latin American classic song “Mi Viejo” - a tribute to all immigrant fathers. The EP has special guest performances by Karl Perrazzo, from Santana, Steve Bradley from No Doubt and Amplive from Zion-I.
In July 2011, Bang Data released their own version of the Afro-Peruvian classic Toro Mata featuring Eva Ayllón, fusing Afro, Cumbia, Hip Hop & Rock. The track was featured as “new & noteworthy” on Itunes Latino.
In September, Bang Data's self-titled single from Maldito Carnaval was featured almost on its entirety on AMC's Emmy Award winning TV Drama "Breaking Bad" Season 4 Ep#10 "Salud".
Bang Data is finishing up the highly anticipated album “Sopa” out in 2012.
