Jay Glass Dubs - Dubs ( ELP032 )
One of the boldest new producers to broach the dub sphere in recent times, Jay Glass Dubs is subject of 'Dubs', a prime “early years” survey of his work, with a range of nods to shoegaze, darkwave synth styles and weightless dynamics. All the material compiled here is available on vinyl for the first time plus one track never released before on any format. Think of it is a set of productions sitting somewhere between Basic Channel, Equiknoxx and HTRK - a proper doozy this one.
Written during what Dimitris Papadatos, aka Jay Glass Dubs, describes as “an adventurous and bold period”, and holding material issued on tape by various labels between 2015-2016, the Dubs compilation frames a singular, stripped down take on classic dub forms, wherein Jay Glass Dubs perceptibly retains the sound’s heavy function and mystic qualities, but subtly updates its palette with a range of nods to a myriad of unexpected, angular styles.
The results form a sort of ghostly, filleted subtraction of classic dub architecture, all plasmic tones and diaphanous, boneless structures buoyed by an often overwhelming, yet somehow intangible bass presence. Beyond the obvious, thematic ligature that connects the material, which was all recorded within a very short period of time, the artist also suggests there is an underlying, encrypted similarity to the material which is “merely apparent to me”, and awaits much closer investigation from keen ears.
From Jay’s eponymous 2015 debut for Hylé tapes, listeners will encounter the heaving smudge of Definition Dub, the serpentine, Coil-like digital delays of Grumpy Dub, and a grime drone drill Depression Dub. Off the II tape for THRHNDRDSVNTNN comes the darkwave synths and militant step of Magazine Dub recalling a gauzier Equiknoxx production, next to the bass-less scudder, Detrimental Dub and the shoegazing bloom of Daria Dub, while his III tape tees up some abyssal highlights in the vertiginous Hilton Dub, the melancholy, Basic Channel-scoped scale of Sieben Dub, and the HTRK-esque starkness of Everlasting Dub.
Exclusive to the set is Perfumed Dub, recorded in 2017 and pointing to vast, layered, atmospheric directions for a timeless project which is only just hitting its stride.’’

Jay Glass Dubs VS Guerilla Toss
Brooklyn's DFA Records and Bristol's Bokeh Versions have teamed up for a joint release - a reworking of the freaky post-punk stylings of Guerilla Toss by Athens, Greece-based musician and producer Dimitris Papadatos, a.k.a. Jay Glass Dubs
The EP comes on the heels of the former’s latest record, GT Ultra, which was released this past June. Jay Glass Dubs vs Guerilla Toss turns the hyper-bouncy pop and deeper, darker tracks of GT Ultra into four, stripped-down dub ruminations, each one spacier and weirder than the last.
The frenetic, zany tempos of songs like “Skull Pop” and “Can I Get The Real Stuff?” are transformed into slow, viscous existential crises that focus in on Kassie Carlson’s echoing vocals. Jay Glass Dubs works headphone magic with reverberating percussion and slinky basslines, as always keeping one foot in dub’s past but both eyes on its horizon.
Artist in demand and Bokeh-affiliate Patrick Savile’s artwork eloquently articulates the ethos of the EP – speedy, psychedelic textures are blurred and made malleable, gracefully reflecting the sounds of original album through a hazy prism. If you know Bokeh, you know Jay Glass Dubs.
This Guerilla Toss soundclash hints at new sonic territory that he’s been quietly exploring in email threads with Bokeh Edwards. The trip-hop stylings and mechanical dub futurism foreshadow his debut 12” which will be out at the tail end of 2017

Jay Glass Dubs — Endless/Nameless (ANM036)
When Nirvana’s Nevermind hit stores in the fall of 1991, little did the world know what this band would become.
Inside this album, Nirvana and their producer Butch Vig had hidden a track called Endless/Nameless – a live improvisation/jam between the band with their typical mellow/heavy/mellow songwriting MO pushed to the extreme.
The only way to hear it was to let the CD end and wait for 13 minutes 51 seconds.
It is not credited on the album and was not included on every copy. The first pressings didn’t have it, many later pressings left it off.
The unauthorised biopic ‘Nirvana: The Chosen Rejects’ mentions that the ”first 50,000 CD copies did not include the track. On this CD the water is painted all the way to the center of the CD; on the second version the color stops and the center is clear. Creating a gold mine for collectors, the first pressings of Nevermind did not include ‘Endless Nameless’. The oversight by DGC was corrected shortly thereafter when a new pressing was immediately sent out once the error was discovered.”
Other sources mention that at least one guy returned his copy of Nevermind. He thought it was broken when the hidden track suddenly appeared. Many other people thought there was something wrong with their multi-disc CD players, which should stop playing at the end of the album.
The way this mischievous noise-rock track infiltrated a record of dinosauric success has a romantic impact when we look at what rock music was before, and how it developed after Nevermind – it signified exactly what the band was all about.
It transformed the listener’s approach towards what a mainstream rock album should ‘sound like’ and how experimentation was perceived in a genre that still has very narrow ‘borders’.
The ambiguity it created is still reverberating.
It was a ticking bomb inside an otherwise well polished version of the band’s thrusting live energy and it profoundly delivered a very clear message to big corporate labels and mainstream audiences.
Jay Glass Dubs – Endless/ Nameless: out via anomia on the 24th of September (the same date Nevermind was released back in 1991) is a hommage to that track and its monolithic effect (using an inverted approach).
Following his stripped-down methodology, Jay Glass Dubs elaborates on two single loops created initially with a simple step sequencer. The result is two side-long tracks that retrace the obsolete pathways of ’dub techno’ while empowering it anew; by focusing on the 3/4 rhythmology of the sub-genre’s Caribbean predecessors; removing it completely from its four-on-the floor conversion and the club culture usurpation it has been under for the last few decades.

Jay Glass Dubs new collaboration track with Delia Gonzalez and Raul de Nieves out today via DFA Records for Delia's new EP 'Hidden Song'.
This take on “Hidden Song” is a long-form journey with live percussion, kick drum, layer upon layer of synths, and mine and Raul's chants and vocals. We went a bit cosmic disco on this one but some disco never hurt anyone.
Other contributors to this EP include a slinky subdued take by Steven Warwick aka PAN recording artist Heatsick , techno reworks by Barker & Baumecker, Bryce Hackford as well as a melodic electro remix by Berlin gallerist / DJ Gigiotto Del Vecchio aka Gigiotto Von Alt ( Supportico Lopez Gallery ).
☻ '' ...Papadatos morphs it into various shades of chamber-deep dubwise weirdness – spacey, reverbed to the absolute nines and oozing like molasses. It’s a fresh take on dub music, that’s for sure; the constituent elements are there but the signifiers are emphasised to their absolute extremes – monolithic bass is starkly contrasted with hazy top-lines that shimmer and sink deep into the background. The rough and ready nature likens this far more to the classic engineering of artists like Scientist than the somewhat more clinical contemporary takes on dub music.
This approach is seen most clearly on closer Can I Get The Real Dub, a triple time dread-march with little to it other than an intoxicating rhythm tracks, an electric bass loop and waves of treated vocals that sound like they’re being beamed from the heavens....''

Like Mad Professor with Massive Attack or Dennis Bovell with Golden Teacher, the selected song structures of GT Ultra are progressively dissolved and and sublimated in the echo chamber in a woozy declension from the D&B-style intro and thunderous pressure of Skull Dub to the nagging, almost Forest Swords-like plangency and steppers roil of String Dub, then coming to pool in the horizontal scan of TV Do Dub, and letting it all ride out for ten minutes of reclined trip-hop in Can I Get The Real Dub...''

''Intoxicatingly forward, dank dub manoeuvres from Jay Glass Dubs, racking up his 2nd album of 2016 for South London’s excellent Bokeh Versions, who’ve already left us reeling with a series of aces from Abu AMA and Seekersinternational this year.
The title of New Teeth for an Old Country perfectly sums up Jay Glass Dubs approach, which is not so much emperor’s new clothes, as a refinement of vintage styles; sharpening the old vampire’s incisors so he can affectively sustain his nocturnal activities.
It’s hauntologically apt, forming a coming-to-terms with still lingering echoes hungover from his native Greece’s recent past, and also resonating with an all too uncertain, chaotic future thru a blend of over-pronating FX and a most explicit embrace of negative ambient space.
Existing in dub’s most classic/forward paradox it’s gripping yet diffuse stuff, working to heavily hypnotic effect in a way that recalls future-proofed productions from John T. Gast to Muslimgauze.''

Reverse Ariadne is a work in ten acts for voice, piano, electronics and various objects. Themed from an old legend of the island the work seizes to a counterfactual reading of traditional and folklore songwriting juxtaposed with scoring practices that could draw reference from the late 70s giallo genre.
Special commission for Tinos Quarry Platform exhibition at Cultural Foundation of Tinos.

-Every day everyone
carries one by one
a secret only known to the mountain
a difficult uphill
a hidden path
pirates in the port
and no one in the village
The woman knits
the last stronghold
suddenly the tangle detangles
our children prey to the enemy
Seven days the fire burns
Seven ships with black sails
And all that belonged to us
One by one in flames , one by one

Gutter nature and service compartments cut up in pieces.
Striving for a goodnight, gouging the names that you will google next morning.
Morals for the sake of morality and opinions mirroring possessiveness.
Not many things at stake here.
In fact nothing but the time that passes despite us.
A narrow path in ambivalence,that leads to an ocean of clarity.
