Dubkasm gather up Bristol's best dubstep producers to remix tracks from their highly-acclaimed 2009 album Transform I (DUBK 001CD/LP). Dubkasm comprise childhood friends Digistep and DJ Stryda, who kicked off their dub project in the mid-'90s before going on to launch their Sufferah's Choice label in '03 in order to showcase their studio productions. 2009's Transform I album was a culmination of their work so far, collecting tracks from their previous 12"s and including vocal turns from Dub Judah, Levi Roots and Afrikan Simba. They've also issued a dub version of the entire record by the name of Transformed In Dub. Transform I - Remixed completes the trilogy of releases, and Dubkasm have decided to keep things Bristolian for the remix CD, inviting Pinch, Peverelist, Appleblim & Gatekeeper, Headhunter, Guido, Gemmy, RSD, Hyetal, Forsaken and Jakes to offer up versions of their material. Although most of the remixes could be classified as dubstep of some kind, all of them remain deeply rooted in the reggae source material, ranging from the vocodered digidub of Gemmy's "City Walls" to Peverelist's delayed minimalist take on "Strictly Ital."
