Jenny and the Mexicats

Jenny began playing the trumpet aged 7 and began singing at 15, alongside teaching herself to play the guitar. Playing both in Jazz and Classical bands as well as orchestras most of her life, she had an ear and a love for music. A fusion of nationalities and personalities, the band's story is a little unusual and more of an accidental occurrence rather than a planned adventure. Jenny & The Mexicats began life as Pachucos y la Princesa in June 2008, when Jenny was invited to Spain by a Double Bass player (Icho) she'd met two years previously whilst touring in Madrid. In search of something new, Jenny fell right into place in Spain, decided she wanted to call it home and set about starting a band. Icho contacted the best guitar player he knew - Pantera, a flamenco guitarist, whom Icho had known all his life and shared previous bands with, including a a Rockabilly band in Spain. The closest thing to a drummer they could find was David, the Spanish Cajon player extraordinaire, whom Pantera had played with in a Flamenco band. Thrown together in the midst of an English girl's urge for adventure, Jenny & The Mexicats were born. Their first gig was to be Wonderland, a small annual festival in the UK that raises money for cancer research, where Jenny had previously performed solo. .... Their musical roots had variety and spice and Jenny immediately fell in love with the combination of Flamenco, Acoustic Folk and Rockabilly and began writing constantly. They rehearsed nonstop for two months in the same Flamenco tablao they had met in, Jenny spoke no Spanish and David no English so it was left down to the universal love for creating music and some expert translating from the two Mexicans to bring it all together..... In England Jenny & The Mexicats created an immediate buzz and it was starting to look as though they may have stumbled across something special. They returned to Spain and continued in the same manner in which they had begun. They began booking more and more gigs and touring the whole of Spain. After a brief spell signed to an English record label Jenny and the Mexicats decided that in order to protect their sound and to be able to grow in a more natural way, they wanted to be independant and so Mexicat Records was born. In 2012 they moved to Mexico city and released their first album 'JENNY AND THE MEXICATS' which included a mix of English and Spanish songs. Some classics from the bands earlier days like Heaven knows and Starting Something, and had 3 hits on the radio, Verde Mas Alla, ME Voy a Ir and Flor. For high numbers sales, this independant band went Gold with their first album and just recently released their second album 'Ome' en autumn 2014. Ome is a fantastic fusion of rhythms, that varies from feel good dance-able songs to moments of sensitive and timeless musical expression. The nature of the instruments and way of composing of Jenny and the Mexicats opens a lot of doors to switch between genres and be able play whatever they feel in that moment and makes for some very fun live shows.
In Ome, the first single is Labios, a song chosen for the soundtrack of Amor de Mis Amores, directed by Manolo Caro. In Frenetico Ritmo and Boulevard they recorded Tuba, and you begin to notice a Mexican influence. J&TM covered a Mexican classic called No Dejes de Quererme and mixed English and Spanish in this version, that was so popular that they have just been invited to sing it with La Sonora Santanera in their latest material. The voice of David shines in Duele a Caminar, Labios and Boulevard and an essence of Inglaterra can truely be heard in Head in My Heart and Back to Basics. The latter of which Jenny recorded alone with her guitar. There is a song dedicated to the bands dogs, 'Sasha y Esteban' and included is 'Even it Out', a classic earlier song from the band that many wished to hear in their first record but was not recorded till the second.
The nature of their instrumentation and the style of music of Jenny and the Mexicats allows them to play from the biggest shows to the smallest shows.

Bang Data

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 play cumbia, hip-hop and rock into a new language of sound for the people. The ensemble released their third studio album LOCO Spring 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!

Deuce Eclipse and Caipo met in 2008 through a mutual friend while Deuce was working on his solo effort with Amp Live of Zion I . Soon after, Deuce and Caipo began collaborating in the studio and began approaching ideas with an openness to experiment and combine influences from different genres. Within a few months of work they decided to re- lease they're first EP Maldito Carnaval. In 2010 the EP landed them a song feature on Itunes Latino with the track “Drivin Steady”. "

In late 2011, a highlight in the bands journey was a 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’. The song kicks in right after Don Eladio, played by Steven Bauer, makes a toast and says “Salúd” then shouts ‘Traigan a las chicas” before realizing he was poisoned by a Cartel business partner.!

Other Tv & Film placements include: the film Spare Parts, featuring George Lopez, Criminal Minds:Be- yond Borders. Bang Data also provided music for El Rey Networks Wrestling Show ‘Lucha Underground’ for two seasons, as well as being the house band."

Bang Data’s 2014 album, Mucho Poco, refines their style even more and offers 10 songs, among them “Amor Califas”, a thumpin’ samba-electro-cumbia take on Dr. Dre’s & Tupac’s “California Love” celebrating latino leaders and life in Califas. “Candela” a hypnotic beat with fearless rhymes makes you move as the chant “La Candela, prende la vela...” surrounds you. The title track “Mucho Poco” opens another dimension for the band breaking it down acoustically with in-your-face vocals and a touch of melodic emotion. "

On stage, Bang Data take the songs to a whole other level when performing live. The energy and power of the bands thumping and contagious grooves pushes Deuce Eclipse singing and flow even further, including the occasionally freestyle. "
Bang Data has performed with Chicano Batman, Calle 13, Bomba Estereo, Cafe Tacvba, Ozomatli, Nortec Collective, A Band Of Bitches, Enanitos Verdes, among others."

Bang Data recorded John Fogerty’s classic “Fortunate Son” fusing Rock and Cumbia rhythms as the canvas for Deuce’s vocals including a fearless rap section. The recording is now part of a Latin Creedence Clearwater R evival tribute album entitled “Quiero Creedence”, that was released Summer 2016 on Concord Picante. "
The album includes tracks by Enrique Bunbury, Los Lobos, Juan Gabriel, Salvador Santana ft Juanes and Asdru Sierra, Billy Gibbons & Santa Cecilia, Los Lonely Boys, Enjambre, Enanitos Verdes just to name a few. Caipo helped conceive the idea of the CCR Tribute album and has been part of the team behind the project producing and mixing several tracks."
