Dimitris Papadatos (b.1981,USA) is a composer, musician and sound artist based in Athens Greece. His experimentation in various territories of sound began in 2002 and since then he has indulged in sonic areas that vary from pop music to music-concrete, post-grime and dub. At the moment he actively runs three projects: U, The Hydra and Jay Glass Dubs.

Jay Glass Dubs is an exercise of style focusing on a counter-factual historical approach of dub music, stripped down to its basic drum/bass/vox/effects form.

His work has been presented in various institutions and festivals from the Transmediale, the Athens Biennale, the Onassis Cultural Centre and Fasma Festival, to the Athens/Epidaure Festival, Cynetart Festival and the Greek National Theatre while he has composed scores for award winning short films and pioneering theatrical performances.

He has performed in venues and spaces such as Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, mo.ë in Vienna, Bios in Athens, Echo Buecher in Berlin,Salon Des Amateurs in Dusseldorf , Detail Gallery in Paris and Goldsmiths University in London. His music has been featured in various radio shows including Trevor Jackson's show on NTS Radio, Sam Segal's show on WFMU, Tristan Bath's Spool's Out show on UK's Resonance FM and Tiny Mix Tapes' Tabs Out podcast.

Dislocated Folklore, recorded especially for The Tapeworm, consists of two 30 minute long tracks that incorporate mainly stretched-out 0'03 sample recordings of 90s Ragga 12 single intros combined with and recordings of a Quran recitation from a Turkish TV channel and Jay Glass Dubs' signature hybrid hardware/software set-up. The title refers to (and therefore is an intended pun of) the misinterpretation of otherism orientalism, exoticism, etc… – phrases often used over the past 100 years to describe a tendency of metropolitan musicologists to intellectualise forms of expression that have a very strong relation to roots, religion and ethics.
