Mantius is a Soca Freak

St.Lucian soca artist, Mantius (Cazaubon) created the web site SocaFreak.com in an attempt to promote soca music globally.

SocaFreak.com is your one stop for information and everything related to soca music. This includes albums, artists, charts, downloads, lyrics, news, radio stations, ringtones, songs and videos.

The biggest tunes are featured from every soca music nation, including Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Antigua, and Grenada. Learn about leading artists and smaller, less established artists alike.

In 1999, Mantius released "Earthquake", an album of eleven songs which featured chart topping songs like "Wine In De Party", "Bend Down", and the title track "Earthquake". In 2002, he was one of the most booked St Lucian artists, with great, addictive hits such as "Make A Round", and "Fire Burn Dem" which placed second in the Road March Competition. He went on to entertain audiences in Aruba, Canada, Trinidad, USA, and the Virgin Islands.

Since then he has dominated the Lucian soca music scene by being the first St. Lucian to win the OECS soca monarch competition in 2003 with the song "I Doing A Ting." In 2004 he repeated the feat by winning with the song "We Making Love". In 2005 he was the first runner up in that competition with the song "Give Us A Reason". In the local party monarch competition he has maintained the envied position of second place for three years in a row.

Mantius Cazaubon is one of the very few soca artists who writes, arranges, composes and produces his own songs. This dynamic soca artist has been labeled St Lucia's most consistent soca artist by his tent the New Generation Soca Stage with an award in 2005.

In 2006 he signed a contract with telecommunications company Cable and Wireless St Lucia Ltd, becoming a member of the Bmobile family which includes the likes of Machel Montano and Beenie Man.

My favorite Mantius songs are "No Feelings" & "No Gyal Can Take Your Man". Listen here: MySpace or SocaFreak.com
