Biography

Music Collaborative based in NYC. The group started with Andreas Stavropolis and Desmond Tetrault. Both shared a common interest in hip-hop and more beat oriented music. What started with just simply beats turned into Colossal Mantis over time. Now Colossal Mantis is comprised of both the original two members plus Joey Vergara and Alejandro Salazar. The band takes strong influence from Trip-Hop, Electronic, as well as more indie music. The band also frequently collaborates with Irish songwriter, Sorcha Richardson who provides vocals on select tracks. The band just recently started shows after making the decision to play everything live instead of doing a strict DJ set. When you think Colossal Mantis, think of a DJ set where there are actual musicians playing on stage, and not someone just pressing buttons.
