New Teeth for an Old Country

A 6 track ambient dub album (44m 16s) — released November 4th 2016 on Bokeh Versions

Moving from light to dark across 45 minutes of dub electronics, New Teeth for an Old Country references Jay's native Greece - steeped in glacial classicism it's refined and dark as hell. This is dub strictly in the abstract - snatches of horns, a distant scream of organ - Jay Glass Dubs comes across like some bedroom-producer Bauhaus sacrificed to the On U Sound mixing desk.

BKV 007 follows an under-the-radar run of 'Compound Dub' dubplates and the hottest dancehall mixtape of the year (Glacial Dancehall) on Bokeh. Jay recently completed a trilogy of tapes on Hyle Tapes, THRHNDRDSVNTNN and Seagrave. Forthcoming releases on The Tapeworm and anòmia foreshadow his debut 12" on Bokeh Versions next year.

The release sees Jay experiment with the realm of possibility as he strips down tracks to the bare bones - Ransom Note

Intoxicatingly forward, dank dub manoeuvres from Jay Glass Dubs, racking up his 2nd album of 2016 for South London’s excellent Bokeh Versions, who’ve already left us reeling with a series of aces from Abu AMA and Seekersinternational this year. - Boomkat

Jay drowns you in 45 minutes of molten rubber dubs, woofing out the speakers like beat-up hubcap dubplates. - Tiny Mixtapes

The focus on bass, rhythm and delay make the Jamaican influence an obvious one here, the textures and ambience that amalgamate from the echo chamber reach further afield, drawing on many facets of modern experimental music, all whilst maintaining the anchor in the depths of the dub abyss. - Rewind Forward
