It doesnt seem to have been mentioned in any forum as a FP or malware. when I try to trace it it shows as being in the depths of rural Kansas n.e of Wichita!
any thoughts because I cant think of any untowards site I have visited that would suddenly cause this outgoing to pop up.

According to ip-lookup.net, it's in the US.
You don't mention the process that's trying to make the connection, so it's hard to know for sure what's going on without more info.
IP blocks can indicate a number of things:
- They could indicate that MBAM is doing its job of blocking bad content on websites.
- They can also occur when running Skype and certain P2P programs, such as torrents. For example, please see this help desk topic about Skype and this one about P2P.
- In some cases the blocks are a false positive.
- However, they can also be a sign of infection, especially if the blocks are outgoing and they occur when no browsers are open.
They also contain instructions on how to determine what process might be trying to make the connections.
You may also research the IP in question at www.ip-lookup.net or a similar site.
On the other hand, if you think the IP blocks might be a false positive, then please read this sticky topic before starting a new topic in the False Positives forum.
>>>Alternatively, if you think you might be infected, based on the IP blocks and/or other suspicious computer behavior, then please read the following for the available options to have a malware expert assist you with cleaning process Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.

Right now, as I write, Malwarebytes is blocking 18.104.22.168 every time that a new song plays on the deezer player.
