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 and musician/producer Juan Manuel Caipo, who has become a sought out name producing and mixing in the San Francisco music scene and abroad. Deuce and Caipo have created music loaded with heavy grooves, Samba-Cumbia and hints of Afro-Electro-Bossanova. This mix of beats, rhymes and melodies are infused with soulful bilingual (English/Spanish) lyrics. The sound is unmistakably theirs. Their self-titled single “Bang Data” from  their debut album La Sopa was featured on AMC’s Emmy® Award winning television drama Breaking Bad and also premiered as part of the new George Lopez film ‘Spare Parts’. Download the song for free.

On stage they are joined by Michael Cavaseno on guitar. The group has performed with acts such as Calle 13, Cafe Tacvba, Ozomatli, Zion I, Natalia Lafourcade, Enanitos Verdes, Panteon Rococo, Bomba Estereo, Kinky, and Chico Trujillo.

Be sure not to miss a very special OMF preview performance at Oaklandish’s September First Friday! Details below.
