Epitaph

A 10 track industrial dance album (41m 34s) — released January 25th 2019 on Bokeh Versions

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 the first proper propersolo 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.

The breathtaking odyssey of ’Epitaph’ is Jay Glass Dubs’ definitive opus, a singular redefinition of dub music wielding mutable mixtures of psychedelic dub, ambient-pop and abstract sound design. - Boomkat

More colourful than dark ambient, more ominous than dub, more industrial than dream pop and more dreamy than industrial, Epitaph sheds new light on sonic templates we thought we had taken for granted. - Soul Feeder
