A new MetX production with an exceptional instrumentation and sound. Luc Mishalle takes to the bass saxophone, surrounded by Eric Yovogan and Joris De Beer on trumpet, Véronique Delmelle on alto saxophone, young talent Audrey Dechèvre (Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles) on drums and Costa Mbunda (Institut National des Arts de Kinshasa) on guitar.


BLAST! plays original compositions suggested by Luc and Eric, forged into a groovy repertoire by the full band. Slam poets Adrien Sezuba Rukira and Katia De Hertog aka Cage add spoken word interventions in Dutch, French and English. After an initial demo session at the end of 2023, Luc and his band are working on their repertoire for performances in the spring of 2024.

BLAST can mean a lot of things: from a biotech algorithm to a sudden gust of wind, from an explosion to hard hits in baseball and golf. Moreover, the four horn players met each other in Brussels, coming from Benin, Liège and Antwerp and playing Saxophone and Trumpet. So it’s hardly surprising that their combined breaths make a BLAST!
