Bokeh Versions Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
First full-length album from the Greek producer Jay Glass Dubs, which introduces some new details into the Glass Dubs mixture. For one, we hear yr man’s voice singing (as well as a guest spot from Yorgia Karid), and the general feel is very expansive. We also get the treat of some saxophone from Ben Vince. Epitaph is released by Bokeh Versions.
Leslie Winer & Jay Glass Dubs
Winer's contributions to music are frankly all over the place, writing for pop legends and working with giants of global experimental music. Here the cascading vocal ruminations drift atop a sparse skeleton of future beats played out by Jay Glass Dubs. Some collaborations just WORK. This is one of them.
A hazy pairing of stripped back but snazzy dub jams with contemporary touches adding atmosphere and abstraction. The deep bass and subtle beats are augmented with space echoed voices, pulsing keys and pad textures. Singular stuff from a unique collaborative force, brought from obscurity into the light.
- Vinyl 12" (BKV014-NC12005)
This much required re-press (check yo' discog prices) is of one of the most unique and singular dub albums ever made. It moves away from the standard drum and bass workouts by incorporating cosmic synths, radiophonic noodles and space age bachelor pad music. So impressed were the BBC that at one point they approached the band with a view to working on the Doctor Who soundtrack! The original pressing is scarce so this is a welcome re-issue.
Guerilla Toss’s material gets laid out bare for Jay Glass Dubs to work some jittery remix magic on… with sexy results. Lots of space, wonky reverb, and synthetic shimmer is brought to the fore by Jay, and I’m sure Toss will be pleased with the results. Jay Glass Dubs vs Guerilla Toss is a cassette release, and it's out on Bokeh Versions.
