ʸᵒᵘ ᵒⁿˡʸ ˡⁱᵛᵉ ∞ⁿᶜᵉ A real slow-burner. Darkxcoreambient rumbles and drumrollls from underneath many blankets and from the distance echoeing some kind of rhythmelody in a reverb soaked pit of mysterious and frightening dub research. From rather tame squalls of droning atmospherics to darkened cyber industrial clanky territories and beyond this

vocals that seem to appear to bee melting and riddims that rock back and forth like aabandoned ghost ship

Fascinating collection brutal stuff

Teedubyabee Amazing side-step to a more gothic/industrial zone; an even darker Nearly God/Tricky vibe with a deeply buried dub pulse - truly music for end times. The OPN-esque treated vocals on To My Benefitors are killer. (p.s. No. 2 in Mojo's Experimental LPs of 2019) Favorite track: To My Benefitors.

On Epitaph things are different - Jay’s voice croons crystalline over goth futurism for the first time on record (if you haven’t heard of Ku….) - he sings one of the oldest Greek songs ever written and has spent the last year doing impromptu vocal covers of Tricky tracks in Cambridge pubs. And did you notice the tracks don’t have dub in the title any more?

This his first proper proper solo LP from Jay Glass Dubs - a widescreen vision of 4AD nightmares, ballads for River Styx crossings and echoes that never end. It’s This Mortal Coil if they knew about dungeon synth and Metalheadz and still thought dub techno was boring as fuck.

Epitaph follows his 2LP retrospective of ‘the tape years’ ‘Dubs‘, on Not Waving’s Ecstatic Recordings; and his 12” mini-LP with Leslie Winer on Bokeh early in 2018. It’s his 5th and no way final release for Bokeh (do you remember BKV 002 the slowest dancehall mixtape ever made?) Realised with help of Greek vocalist and performing artist Yorgia Karidi and a special saxophone guest spot from Ben Vince (Curl, Where To Now, Hessle Audio). Bokeh graphic visionary Patrick Savile’s sensually airbrushed and peeled lemon closes this funeral casket of all the things you thought you knew about Jay Glass Dubs.
