Some artists choose to hide their identity from the publics eye, but today we have an exciting new artist who's even kept their artist name a mystery… at least for now. The artist made it clear that letting the music "speak for itself" was a top priority before anyone grew attached to the name or image. With that being said, we received a groove filled dance track with this unknown vocalist singing the lyrics to various Outkast's popular hits. The melodic deep house beat compliments the silky smooth vocals perfectly, creating one infectiously delightful track to play multiple times. Such mystery causes an unreal amount of curiosity, is this a completely new artist or some already established act? It sounds like it could have been produced by someone like Disclosure or Perseus.
