Jay Glass Dubs, the acclaimed musical venture of Dimitris Papadatos, is an exercise of style focusing on a counter-factual historical approach of dub music, stripped down to its basic drum/bass/vox/effects form.
A key figure in the electronic dub scene for years, Dimitris is a composer, musician and sound artist based in Athens Greece who at the moment actively runs three projects. Jay Glass Dubs, ΚU and The Hydra.
His work has been presented in various international institutions and festivals while he has performed in venues and spaces such as Portikus in Frankfurt, Klub Kegelbahn in Lucerne, Departamento in Mexico City, Corsica Studios and Rye Wax in London, Macao in Milan, Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin and many more. He has recorded broadcasts for stations such as NTS Radio, Rinse FM, Radar Radio, dublab and Resonance FM and his music has been featured in various radio shows including BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction,
NTS Radio,WFMU to name a few. Since 2017 he is resident selector for Noods Radio in Bristol, and LYL Radio in Lyon.
The acclaimed album “Epitaph” (2019) is described as an undreground phenomenom which fashions a wide-ranging attempt to move beyond his dub influences.
His latest album, “Soma”, released in August 2020, gained wide critical acclaim which describes Jay Glass Dubs as one of the undisputed masters of contemporary leftfield music. In this double LP you can find elements of Bristolian rap, Detroit and Chicago house and Jamaican dub, although the result is far from any categorization proving his own soundworld is more than words can describe.
A unique performance in Athens within the frame of We Are Europe.
