Jay Glass Dubs is Dimitris Papadatos, a Greek artist whose muggy, strung-out dub mutations for labels such as Bokeh Versions, The Tapeworm and Seagrave have gained him a cult following over the past few years. Using classic dub production methods as a starting point, Papadatos weaves influences like shoegaze, darkwave and ambient into ghostly musical structures with hypnotic effect.
Papadatos came to wider attention in late 2017 with an EP on DFA Records that reworked tracks by New York noise punks Guerilla Toss, and Dubs, a compilation of his early tracks pressed to vinyl by Ecstatic Recordings. The latter is a must-listen for fans of the innovative dub and dancehall sounds of previous FACT mixers Equiknoxx and Seekersinternational.
The Athens artist describes his FACT mix as a throwback to some of the artists that influenced the Jay Glass Dubs sound, such as Tricky, Errol Brown and Sly & Robbie, and a document of some of his current musical obsessions, like Pessimist and Novo Line. It also features several Jay Glass Dubs productions alongside his own versions of tracks by Sade and Greek artist Lena Platonos. It’s a perfectly paced selection to ease you gently into 2018.
