- Dubkasm


Dubkasm are a major part of the international roots and dub movement. Whether collaborating with top vocalists like Solo Banton, Afrikan Simba and Rudey Lee or simply as a duo, their live show is unique and explosive, with heavyweight basslines, inspiring vocals, vintage dub styles and live instruments. Formed in 1994 during the emergence of the UK digital dub sound, they are live veterans with loyal fans, bringing their experience of playing dances with the best soundsystems in the world, including Aba Shanti-I and Iration Steppas, to stages at Glastonbury and Outlook Festival. Touring regularly they have performed in 27 countries including Brazil, Japan, Russia, USA and as far as Siberia. World famous for their anthemic ‘Victory’ – the best selling vinyl roots release of recent decades (recently remixed by Mala), the duo have released a stream of hard-hitting plates. Their debut album Transform I combined Brazilian instrumentation with the top vocalists from the UK reggae scene, among them Levi Roots, Tena Stelin and Christine Miller; re-pressed twice due to worldwide demand it became one of the most popular UK roots albums in years. Always innovators, Dubkasm handed the album over to top Bristol producers like Pinch, RSD and Headhunter for remixing, with incredible results, crossing boundaries and expanding their loyal fan-base.
