Based in Oakland, California - Bang Data is like California itself - built on Latin traditions, but deeply hybrid in expression. This beloved SF Bay Area based band - led by singer/emcee Deuce Eclipse who’s well known by hip-hop fans as an accompanying voice to the legendary Zion I, and producer/instrumentalist Caipo who has become a sought out name producing & mixing in the San Francisco music scene and abroad - they spin cumbia, hip-hop and rock into a new language of sound for the people. The ensemble is releasing their third studio album LOCO this March 2018. Most known for their song placement of the self-titled track “Bang Data” from their album La Sopa” on AMC’s hit TV Drama ‘Breaking Bad’ Season 4, Episode titled ‘Salud’. But since the 2016 release of the Quiero Creedence - a Latin tribute album to legendary rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival - Bang Data has received a growing wave of attention, including from the legends CCR themselves!
