This is the dub follow-up to the acclaimed Transform I (DUBK 001CD/LP) by Dubkasm, where Bristol meets Brazil: a heavy, authentic blend of roots and dub reggae, where Dubkasm's sound varies from militant digital steppas to acoustic vocal tracks, with Brazilian rhythms and samba instrumentation occasionally woven into the mix. Atmospherics and percussion recorded in Brazil reflect the journey of producer Digistep tracing his Brazilian roots, as instruments such as berimbau, zabumba, cavaquinho and cuica are called into play, while his Bristolian counterpart DJ Stryda captures some of the finest vocalists from the UK's reggae and dub scene and promotes the material worldwide. Amidst the more traditional dub styles, nyahbinghi drumming bonds with samba, capoeira percussion rides one-drop rhythms, and the first album to mix UK dub with Brazilian influences is born. Features enhanced CD video content "The Dubkasm Story," which was produced and filmed by Karl Folke and Andreas Weslien, the makers of the excellent and well-received documentary "Musically Mad," which concerned itself specifically with UK roots reggae sound system culture. Featuring guest artists Tena Stelin, Ras Addis, Christine Miller, Lidj Xylon, Ras Bernardo, and Dub Judah.
