Dubmission Records have blazed a trail of warped woofers since the mid 90’s, when they launched with a trio of bass heavy dubwise compilations.

In 1996, they kicked off with the Mashing Up Creation album, which featured tracks by Doof, Adelphi and 100th Monkey amongst others. It was reviewed favourably by The Sunday Times, DJ and Sleaze Nation, the latter describing it as ‘carrying on where original dub hijackers The Orb left off!’ It was swiftly followed by Dubbed On Planet Skunk, with stand out tracks from Zion Train, Quirk and Alpha & Omega. Praised by Music Week, Muzik, DJ and Kiss FM, it sold over 3,000 copies in Europe alone. The third instalment took 2 years to put together: More Bass Than Space was a double album which represented every spectrum of the modern dub scene, with tunes from artists as diverse as Hallucinogen, Woob, Solar Quest, Singers&Players and Tribal Drift. It sold well all over the world, and led to a label tour of Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and America.

From 2001 til 2005, the Dubmission crew concentrated more on artist management, event promotion and tour booking than releasing records. However after hearing Pitch Black’s Ape to Angel album, they decided to bring Dubmission out of ‘retirement’, as it represented everything and more that the label had tried to achieve.

Since then the label has gone from strength to strength, with several releases from Pitch Black (2006’s Frequencies Fall remix collection and last year’s Rude Mechanicals) and International Observer’s second album, the critically lauded Heard. The crew have also found time to compile two smoky collections for the Japanese label, Wakyo: On A Dubmission Volumes One and Two.
