After his successful release of "Alive" back in June, KHAI is back with a mystical hip-hop inspired track that translates loaded emotions and confidence. Ride the wave of "Aberrant" with its echoing vocals and distorted beats. Expressing conviction in one's individuality, the lyrics, "I'm unconventional" resonate with those of us who dwell in rarity.

The track is KHAI's first release and has us excited for what he will bring in 2017!
