Darkside aux SUBS: Saturday
Darkside (Matador I New York, United States)
The story goes back to a night of May 2014, that sealed an unbreakable bond between audience, act and festival. Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington had just released a modern-day classic, a record whose shadow would loom large over the entire decade to come: Psychic, a first album that reached our ears and then never left our minds. There followed a live performance at Nuits Sonores which, all these years later, still ranks among the most memorable moments in the festival’s history. A moment stolen from reality, which this anniversary edition will try to emulate: an odyssey written with 10-minute tracks, a parenthesis where space became noise and time slowed to the rhythm of downtempo.
