Matt Damon returns to his defining role in this passable reboot of the Bourne franchise
Submotion Orchestra whipped up a deep, libidinal storm and Inc. did a great job of blissing out the crowd
To the music: Submotion Orchestra popped up as a fully functional musical vestige indebted to golden era trip-hop and those early Jarvis Cocker-directed Nightmares on Wax videos, by whipping up a deep, libidinal storm offering the best jazz-infused smoke rhythms you're likely to find this side of a time machine to prohibition era New York. Elsewhere Inc. did a great job of blissing out the crowd with their James Blake-come-Weeknd-come-Prince pillow talk music, even if singer Andrew Aged looks like Jasman from Babylon Zoo crossed with a toy troll.
Headliner Wood Kid let everyone down by pulling out at last minute due to a mysterious hospital trip that no one could quite explain. But it was more than made up for by Norweigan experimental 10-piece prog-rock / jazz ensemble Jaga Jazzist, who linked up with the Rotterdam Sinfonia orchestra for a performance that felt like winning big-time on the slots and having endless gold coins and cherries pour out until you drown. Meanwhile, the UK electronic underground was represented by Lapalux, who brought over the best of UK bass, minimal and glitch that felt like a b-line through the best of early Warp IDM, Fly Mo and a Night Slugs 5am b2b set.
