In 2018 his song “ALL DAT” was hand-picked and featured in his Netflix series Sheʼs Gotta Have It directed by Oscar-winning director Spike Lee. In 2020 Kay Be produced one of the top streaming songs in Bulgaria’s history – the chart topper by V:RGO & DARA – “Sosa Maje” (6.5M). The artist dropped his debut LP Alternet in 2021 which solidified his place in the creative forward-thinking instrumental scene and received admiration for his genre-bending production approach and performance.

[ Release Info ]

Just like its predecessor released back in March, the second edition of NESHTATA SA PROSTI is a collection of trippy, spacey beats wrapped around the interstellar message which the 2 friends send out in the universe – things are simple.

As Kay Be states in the interlude (in Bulgarian), in the midst of this impossible to comprehend flow of information (movies, music, or whatnot), the only thing that’s important is to calm down, breathe, go out and listen to these beautifully abstract cosmic beats.

Things are simple. Nothing more, nothing less.
