Willem Ardui - Boredom Edits Vol. 1

Pictures by Anneke D'Hollander


blackwave.'s Willem Ardui was bored, so he made a compilation of free edits.

As part of the duo blackwave., Willem Ardui has spent a fair share of the last three years in recording studios and festival stages (feel free to check out the tour video we made with them in the UK last year). Up until recently, many may not have known that Ardui is an extremely skilled solo artist and producer too, often collaborating with artists like Martha Da'ro. Last November, Ardui struck gold in the Best Producer category of the Red Bull Elektropedia Awards.

Like many others in his occupation, Ardui struggled to find new ways of creative connection with his audience. He ended up giving his favourite popular hip hop tracks a little makeover, the result of which you can check out now. The EP includes remixes of Childish Gambino, Tyler The Creator, Ski Mask The Slump God, Mac Miller  and Frank Ocean.

"There are plans to do another EP like this, but only with material from Belgian artists", the man says. Until then, we are happy to leave this first one on repeat.
