Feel the jungle vibe. Tropic Santos is an instrumental psych-stoner trio based in Milan, Italy, and was formed in 2018-2019. The members of the band come from well-known underground situations and toured Europe back and forth. Marco is the guitarist of the long-lasting Veracrash authors of some unique gems in its genre. Giulio’s roots belong to post-hardcore scene, and he was the beating heart of the mighty SMNTCS. Luca plays the bass for the kraut/space-rockers Huge Molasses Tank Explodes.

The three fellas built up a psych-stoner-flavoured melt of captivating tribal grooves with wide hypnotic textures and uncommon paths for an instrumental band. Their vocal-less songs do sing. By the end of Covid 19 pandemic in 2022, the band started playing live, delivering a solid yet imaginative mass of sound that always captured the audience attention.

In fall 2022, Tropic Santos started a collaboration with producer Luca Ciffo (Traum, Fuzz Orchestra). In December, times were ripe for a live session recording that reveals the natural and uncut essence of TS. A 6-track flow of 33 minutes drawing the listener in Tropic Santos’ jungle maze. The record is called »Caccia Grossa« (in Italian: The Big Game). The artwork was commissioned to the artist Zero Deluxe.

New gigs and projects are on the way, just wait for the mandrill!
