Blackwave - If I


The minds behind blackwave are Will and Jay. Will - or Willem Ardui - has already made some buzz with his epinymous solo project. His dutch single ‘Morse’ has seen some airplay on Belgian radio and has over 200k streams on Spotify. Rapper Jaywalker is relatively new to the music scene, but with his background as a sound engineer, he also records and mixes everything produced by blackwave. After creating an official Triggerfinger ft. Methodman-remix, the two decided to work together. Live, the band is accompanied by ‘the dot.’: three jazz musicians of the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp.

'If I' is a nostalgic trip to the simple life, back when you were just a kid. Where dreams and fantasy were sufficient to make your day. The beat was intended for Caleborate, but Jean just completely killed that verse. You can also hear some references in Willem's solo project referring to this subject.
