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 which some years later others would develop for places like Discogs or Myspace. In 2003, Dub Flash Records released its first record. In 2004, the Outer Space Dub XPress webshop and distribution opened. In 2007, the radio program Dub Mash saw the light of day. In 2009, Dub Flash teamed up with the MoonBass Hi+Fi Soundsystem. On 01.10.2011, the Dub Information Portal was archived due to an overwhelming amount of reviews in the queue and a lack of time due to work and life. The archive stayed online for exactly 10 years (until 01.10.2021), then it was put offline for good. The shop & distribution closed in 2012. MoonBass disbanded around 2015. The label, website and radio show continue up to this day, albeit only on a strictly hobby and fun basis.
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.

Yet another legendary live feature for Tom Bauminista's Dub Conference radio show on Outta Mi Yard Radio, recorded live and direct at Dub Cave Studios. The meditation was strong in this show: strictly heaviest steppers from start to end, including lots of dubplates.
All good things are three. Back at Tom Bauminista's Dub Cave Studios for a full take over of his Dub Conference radio show on Outta Mi Yard Radio. Strictly live and direct. Some 3 hours dub craziness in full effect.
My second appearance at Tom Bauminista's Dub Cave Studios for a special live selection on his Dub Conference radio show on Outta Mi Yard Radio. This show brought the idea for DFR018 to life, thanks to the positive feedback for the played dubplates!

Dub and Reggae has many different sub-layers. Since the Finnish summer holidays just started, I play some relaxed sunshine reggae for the pupils and students sunbathing in the parks.
The French forwarded Dub music to an extra heavyweight level with their digital stepper style (which they sometimes even play analogue). Step it up inna fashion francais.
