As his rival back home DJ Crème was busy ‘releasing’ sex tape, Kenya’s US based DJ Xpect was busy in studios doing what he does best. DJ Xpect, Kenyan DJ and multi-talented entertainer,based in New York City has released a new EP titled: “One Day” under the name Dream Slo.

The EP is experimental and leaning on urban electronic, hip hop and R&B. In addition, Dream Slo has for the first time directed, shot and edited the “One Day” short film/music video montage, a visual-based narrative of journeys through the composition of the EP, and DJ Xpect’s experiences across Kenya, West Hollywood and New York City.
The 11-minute narrative was shot over a year, and features brief cameos by associates Xpect has been working with, most notably: LO.U.D. (Urban street dance crew from Brooklyn, New York) as well as emcee Buddha Blaze, who also worked behind the scenes with filming.

DJ Xpect says, “I am now entering into a phase of pushing this “One Day” EP as far out far and wide as I do live gigs. I also have some of the regular afro electronic music coming out soon and for that I will release under my regular name Xpect.
Thanks much as always.” Xpect is rapidly building a fast following on Instagram where he craftily composes 15-second cinematic pieces that stretch beyond normal artistic boundaries and mash up music and culture.
Dream Slo is also giving away a free download of the track “Trapfrica”—a hybrid electronic trap song with embedded afro percussive elements. 10% of all proceeds from the sales of “One Day” are being donated to fight homelessness in New York City, something Dream Slo encountered face to face as he shot scenes around the city.
