Someone had better grab a fire extinguisher and spray it on Dimitris Papadatos because the man is absolutely on fire at the moment. Eight albums and a slew of EPs as Jay Glass Dubs in like three years or something. The quality has been consistently high and this five track mini-album ‘Plegnic’ is no exception.
Opening cut ‘Temple Dub’ is superb - dark, smoked out, cavernous echo chamber dread perfection that has the same deeply immersive, ghostly vibe that made the very early DMZ records so appealing. It just opens this vast space that you feel you can manoeuvre in and around. ‘Umbro Dub’ is equally killer with its stoned drums and illusory voices shimmering into infinite trails. He puts away the heavy, stepping drums on the sublime ‘Mouthless Dub’, leaving the percussion to hover slightly further in the distance, foregrounding a plethora of lush tingle inducing, glimmering crystal dub shards that glitter, float, hover and sweep away weary minds into heavenly bliss.
Underneath lurks the mercurial ‘Dry Dub’ which has a gritty, gnarly drive that sounds kinda vexed. Mighty stepper ‘Fearless Dub’ builds tension and eerie paranoia throughout with holographic duppy spooking around a spliced break. At its most loopy, towards the end, it becomes pretty intense and seems to hoover the air from the room, leaving me almost gasping.
