Wicked Pennsylvanian funk for your soul and essence.
Starship Mantis is a project that aims to provide a dynamic musical experience in a way that is accessible to musicians, music enthusiasts, and those who are simply looking to have a good time. Founded by Pittsburgh bassist Beni Rossman, this project combines the vocal and musical stylings of Jamiroquai with the characteristics of many other influences, both in and outside of the Funk style. Beni and his colleague Langston Kelly (lead vocals/saxophone) discussed the idea of making music that was greater than just a genre and after a short meeting came up with the term “Unity Music”.
The idea behind Unity Music is to promote musical collaboration as well as to unify social relationships and the relationship between your own mind and body. “We want people to enjoy themselves in a mentally and physically stimulating way while also maintaining the integrity and complexity of the music itself,” says Rossman. Starship Mantis continues to develop new music out of this concept.
