“a stunning reassessment of dub music’s bountiful possibilities, similar to the likes of Sun Araw, yet somehow remaining closer to the music’s Jamaican origins.” – The Quietus
“Dislocated Folklore is one of Dubs’ dustiest and diffuse transmission; like John T. Gast and Muslimgauze smoked-up and exhaled by Mad Professor in effect, but perfused with an intangible soul of it’s own imagination that’s key to its allure.” – Boomkat
“Jay drowns you in 45 minutes of molten rubber dubs, gritty woofing out the speakers like beat-up hubcap dubplates.” – Tiny Mix tapes
Dimitris Papadatos (b.1981,USA) is a composer, musician and sound artist based in Athens Greece.
All his songs follow the same naming fashion as “Neckless Dub,” although his approach to stripped down dripped sounds varies immensely.
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.
His work has been presented in various international institutions and festivals from the Documenta,the Transmediale, the Athens Biennale, the Onassis Cultural Centre and Fasma Festival, to the Athens/Epidaure Festival, Cynetart Festival and the Greek National Theatre.
He has performed in venues and spaces such as Corsica Studios, Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, Bios inAthens, Echo Buecher in Berlin,Salon Des Amateurs in Dusseldorf , Détail Gallery in Paris among others while he has recorded broadcasts for stations such as NTS Radio, Radar Radio, dublab and Resonance FM.
His music is been featured in various radio shows including BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction,
NTS Radio,WFMU, Rinse France,Resonance FM, Independent Music Podcast,Dublab and Tiny Mix Tapes’Tabs Out Podcast to name a few.
