A: Dislocated Dub
B: Folklore Dub

Dimitris Papadatos (b.1981, USA) 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.

At the moment he actively runs three projects: ΚU, The Hydra and Jay Glass Dubs.

His work has been presented in various international 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.

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.

“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", “orientalist", “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.
