Alicia Keys Enlists Kenyan Producer To Produce Remix Of Her Newly Released Hit Single
A Kenyan DJ and record producer has produced one of the three official remixes for US artist’s Alicia Keys’ newly released hit single “In Common”.
DJ Xpect, whose real name is Peter Kerre, was enlisted by Sony/RCA records and the multi-platinum artiste in late June.
The New York-based DJ beat out three other producers in a landslide after a Twitter poll was put up by Alicia’s husband Swizz Beatz over the weekend asking fans to vote on the best remix.
One of the DJ/producers he beat was South Africa’s Black Coffee who was the last to be added to the production.
On Friday, Ms Keys released the three remix albums including the one featuring Xpect this past weekend and is now available on iTunes.
The four and a half minute production has a heavy mix of electronic and African percussion instruments.
