quattro

Kae - Quattro

Yasmine Bey aka Kae released „Quattro“ her new EP project based on fLako’s free beattape „Leftovers„. „I felt so inspired by what I heard I managed to write four songs in like an hour“. So I decided to do ‚Quattro‘. I call it an EP but it’s more like just one 8-minute song, an illustrated journey into the wild in four parts, combined with mixed sounds I was hearing at that time, both from close surroundings and in my imagination.“ Free download here.
