One of the leading lights of experimental dub electronics, Athens native and core member of the Bokeh All Stars. Dimitris Papadatos (aka Jay Glass Dubs) is a composer, musician and sound artist based in Athens Greece. The main concern in his work is an apposition of disparate elements that assume a re-appropriation of historically applied methodologies while questioning forms of empowering them.The biggest body of his work reflects issues as copyright, spirituality and originality, undergoing a constant state of transfiguration of its outsourcing.
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.
"This is a world you should be getting to know." – Resident Advisor

as well as collaborating with DFA Records (of LCD Soundsystem fame). Through a long-standing monthly residency on NTS radio as well
as gigs all over the world (including the Tate Modern in London) - they are providing a home for outernational sounds, global mindsets and science fiction dreams.
"Bokeh Versions is the otherworldly embodiment of modern sound system culture, a label that harks back to the most experimental years of early dub and roots while charting a voyage into the cosmic future." Red Bull
"Since launching his new school dub label in late 2015, Opland has tasked himself with conjuring a little of this much needed mystery,
allowing the fates to weave him an intercontinental tapestry of largely unknown musicians.....whether it’s lovers rock sampladelia from Canada,
kuduro-infused club dubs from Japan or alternative histories of King Tubby via Athens, every release in their catalogue is connected by
Opland’s ear for the irregular, the emotional and even the spiritual." – The Wire
