Manchester hip-hop production team and live band The Mouse Outfit has brought together the talented UK artists IAMDDB and Fox for the perfect sound in their latest release, “I Wonder”.

Produced by two members of The Mouse Outfit crew, Chini and Metrodome, the smooth single is a flawless blend between IAMDDB’s mesmerizing bars and Fox’s reggae flare. The music video, directed by Jan Bannister and shot by Bannister and Marcus Gillard, features the two flexing their lyrical prowess as they occupy the streets of Manchester.

So far, there’s talk that the single will be included in The Mouse Outfit’s upcoming album along with collaborations featuring other hip-hop/funk rappers and singers. We have yet to hear this officially expressed from the group, but regardless look forward to their upcoming projects.
