Dippy Records was started in 2000 by Roger Houdaille and friends in Miami Beach.

Dippy emerged as the Miami Beach underground scene was kicking with bands like Enemy Against Enemy (Dippy’s first release), Dip, Caution Automatic and oddities like Helmet (solo artist) and the legendary Topless Mercuri.

Around this same time, Dippy Records put together artists (a common trend at the time), the most successful being The BJ Experience who are still around today and have sold and released the most records for the label. The mid-00’s saw Dippy and the whole scene die down until 2005, when new energy came along in the form of groups like MonkeyPox, Capsule & the full length film “in Limbo” on Dippy Films.

Successfully launching the careers for bands like Jacobs Ladder (now JMB Records), Capsule (now Robotic Empire), Chris Price (now Geffen), Dippy Records continues to release albums and films by usually off-the radar artists.

2007 saw the release of Dippy’s biggest record, “Ginger, Baby” by Father Bloopy. In 2008, DippyShop.com, an online music retailer focused on the Miami Beach non-electronic or latin scene launched to record sales.

In August 2008, the label announced its plans to phase out into administration.

In 2010, Dippy has re-emerged out of administration distributing highlights of their catalogue on iTunes and releasing new albums including Ex Norwegian’s second album Sketch and Caution Automatic’s Rumpelstiltskin.
