So perhaps you saw actor, comedian and "man of 10,000 voices" Michael Winslow (Police Academy, Spaceballs) jump onstage with Dweezil Zappa at the Plaza Live last night and lend his vocal talents a song or two. No? No worries, you're going to have plenty of opportunities to see the former "Motormouth Jones" do his thing musically in Orlando this year.

The vocal effects wizard is also a keen beatboxer and a big music fan; indeed, he's about to collaborate with two very credible locals on the hip-hop front.

Winslow is collaborating with top-level local MC Niko Is and producer Joey Creates on a mysterious project that's yet to be revealed, but has been teased via both Winslow and Niko's Twitter accounts.

If it seems surreal on the first read, we're with you, but Niko Is and Joey Creates have enough creative clout that we're excited to hear the results.
