Blackwave (Willem Ardui & Jaywalker) is a hiphop duo from Antwerp. They distinguish themselves with old school hiphop which, in terms of sound, refers to the large hiphop 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 played a.o. North Sea Jazz Festival and Montreux Jazz Festival. Not your usual suspects 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.”
