Blackwave (Willem Ardui & Jaywalker) is a hip hop duo from Antwerp. They distinguish themselves with oldskool hip hop, which in terms of sound refer to the large hip hop groups from the nineties, such as Arrested Development, Outkast and De La Soul. In 2018 they decided to tour with a live band consisting mainly of jazz musicians. This summer they will be present at North Sea Jazz Festival and Montreux Jazz Festival. Not your usual suspect at Mondriaan, but an absolute must-see!
”The fast flows contrast joyfully with the melodic, soul-infused chorus that’ll have you wearing Jazzy Jeff attire in no time.”
