Welcome to the home of
This website is the home of Dub Flash Records, the label that evolved out of the internet's first ever website about Dub music: Dub Flash's Dub Information Portal. Aside from information about the label, you get a trip down memory lane, both in text as well as visual form. Dub Flash was so much more than just a record label. However, time, life and universe goes on, and some things come, and some things go. Such is life.
All the label's releases are available from almost all digital distribution websites for download and streaming. Some of the releases are only available for download from Bandcamp or from here. The limited (up to 750) edition vinyls, CDs and MCs are all sold out (except for DFR020). This website features some background stories about the releases you don't find elsewhere.

Whimsical Music offers you electronic music without boundaries, albeit mainly within a dubby environment. Remixes, one-takes, songs with all kinds of samples come together for an open-minded, free-spirited experience. Whimsical Music is non-profit. It's just for fun and to give our respect to other people's work. Our songs are mostly tributes and fan service for things we like.

How it began...
Going online on 4th May 1998, Dub Flash was the first website in the history of the internet dedicated to Dub music. By 2000, it had turned into the Dub Information Portal with features others would later develop for places like Discogs or Myspace. In 2003, Dub Flash Records released its first record, and the Outer Space Dub XPress webshop & distribution opened. In 2007, the radio show Dub Mash aired for the first time. In 2009, the MoonBass Hi+Fi Soundsystem joined the fun. In 2011, the label Whimsical Music was added, but the Dub Information Portal was archived. It stayed online for 10 years, then it was put offline. The shop & distribution closed in 2012. MoonBass disbanded in 2015. The labels, website and radio show continue up to this day.
For the 5th anniversary of Dub Flash's Dub Information Portal in 2003, Dubcreator produced a dubplate called "Dub Flash" in two versions. One version was pressed on the first 7" release of the then founded label. The other followed in 2018 on the lost gems compilation "Raiders of the Lost Dubs". That, and everything else, is Dub history.
