Uncanny Alliance was a house music duo consisting of producer Brinsley Evans and female vocalist E.V. Mystique from New York City. They first gained attention when their song "I Got My Education" was released to clubs in 1992. The song was a response song to the ubiquitous Crystal Waters song "Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless)". After the song became popular in clubs, several record labels got into a bidding war to sign them.
