The bands info!
1. Bang Data
Bang Data’s sound is a stylistic mash-up of Latin sounds like Cumbia fused with Reggae, Rock and Hip Hop evoking memories of music we grew up with at home, while offering a futuristic perspective. Considered by fans and musicians alike as distinctly influential, Bang Data has collaborated with artists such as Eva Ayllón, Chico Trujillo, Wil-Dog of Ozomatli, Hector Guerra to name a few. Fronted by MC Deuce Eclipse and producer/musician Juan Manuel Caipo, their musical foundation is beat and melody grounding Deuce’s soulful bilingual lyrics. The songs are contagious to say the least. With one EP and two full length albums under their belt, Bang Data’s most recent single ‘Fortunate Son’ was included in the internationally released album ‘Quiero Creedence’ on Concord Records/Universal – a Latin tribute album to Creedence Clearwater Revival. Bang Data’s rendition of ‘Fortunate Son’ received raving reviews on Billboard Magazine, LA Times and Univison’s Uforia Musica. Bang Data has shared the stage with Cafe Tacvba, Calle 13, Bomba Estereo, Kinky, Ozomatli, Los Amigos Invisibles, Nortec Collective and many more. They are currently working on a fourth album to be released in Spring 2017.
For the past 11 years LoCura has crafted their own unique musical identity: “Califas Mestizo Music” which is a blend of Latin American and Iberian rhythms such as rumba, cumbia, salsa and flamenco influenced by punkrock, ska, rap, dub, reggae, dancehall with local and global lyrical themes. The band’s name (“it cures it”) reflects their ethos of making music a remedy, a theme which permeates lyrics such as “la cultura cura la locura,” cultures cures the madness. Vocalist Kata Miletich, expanding on the group’s influences, notes “One big inspiration for the ways we consciously and unconsciously connect different music is this idea that styles and rhythms travel from Africa, Europe stretching across the Americas and mixing with indigenous sounds. Culture is alive in so many different ways, and shows up in different places to tell a story.” LoCura has shared the stage with Zap Mama, La Cuneta Son Machin, Quetzal, Nortec Collective, and opened for Sergio Mendes & Bomba Estereo. They have travelled with their music to Spain, Morocco, Mexico, Nicaragua & North America. LoCura has released three full length albums and is currently writing and recording music for their fourth album.
