The Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) is once again upon us. It’s a week full of discussion panels, artist showcases, and free concerts in outdoor venues around NYC (July 8-12) with a focus on Latin Alternative artists.

KCRW is the official radio sponsor and we will be profiling some of these up & coming bands participating at LAMC whose music transcends language barriers and geographic boundaries so…  Atentos.

Bang Data

For Fans of: Ozomatli, Afrolicious, Zion I

Being that I’m on the West Coast, I’ve been aware of these guys for quite sometime — and they groove.

MC Deuce Eclipse combines the underground, bay area, hip-hop, feel with Juan Manuel Caipo’s stellar production to produce a sound unique to San Francisco.

It’s multi-genre similar to Ozomatli, but not sugar coated with as much traditional sound.

Caipo, who has produced a couple other Latin Alternative bands in the Bay Area favors a heavy sound, be it rock or hip-hop, that gives Bang Data its bite.

Out of the small Latin Alternative scene that still thrives in San Fran, this band has the chops and has put in the sweat equity on the road to deserve a larger audience… that and well…they throw it down live!

“bAY aREA!!??”

They play at El Museo del Barrio on July 9 as part of LAMC.
