Straight out of the Bay Area in early 2008 Bang Data was born, 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.
The debut CD EP entitled “Maldito Carnaval” was released in the Fall of 2009 and includes 7 songs that take you from a Samba-Ska-Cumbia and Electro-Bossanova to a Synth Bass Heavy Stooges infested beat.
In July 2011, Bang Data released a remake of the Afro-peruvian classic Toro Mata featuring Eva Ayllón from Peru.
Most recently, Bang Data's self titled single was featured on the Emmy® Award winning television drama Breaking Bad. The song was part Season 4 Episode 10 "Salud" and was used for one of the final scenes after the Juarez Cartel head Don Eladio-played by Steven Bauer-offers a toast, a final toast that is.
Blending hip hop culture with a revolutionary state of mind, Raw G is notorious for passionate flow and deep poetry. Born and raised in GDL City, Mexico, Raw G was dealt a great deal of struggle at a young age. After losing her father, she began expressing her feelings of pain through writing, and began identifying to such artists like KRS-One, 2Pac and the Fugees, relating to the harsh reality depicted in their music.
In 1999 she moved to Oakland, California to start a new life as a mother. She began learning English by translating rap songs. In the last few years, Raw G has stepped her music career up to the top of the list of up and coming artists from the bay area. She has performed with artists such as KRS-One,Ghostface Killah, Dead Prez,Immortal Technique, Killah Priest, Mala Rodrigues and many more.
