The latest installment from Muhammad Abdullah Hamzah aka Celt Islam titled Sufi Dub is some of his best works to date. Stripping his trademark sound of heavy electronic global riddims back to rolling heavy bass, delays and killa rim shots.
Using mixing techniques refined by Jamaican Dub masters such as Jammy and Tubby, Celt Islam defines his own take on dub, all the elements are there you would expect from a great dub, steppas album, but theirs more, much much more…
The whole album is infused with tablas, sitar, middle eastern influences and electronica making it a truly original album that takes the listener on a journey into new territory – Dub style.
Sufi Dub is released 16th April

A new project by Celt Islam titled Esoteric has gone to press :), The album takes you on a beautiful analog journey with bouncy basslines – it seems to effortlessly combine the best bits of all electronic music genres over the last 30 years. The album takes a different direction from previous releases both by Celt Islam and USR, I fell in love with it the moment I heard it, and as Mr Celt rightly said, you go where the journey takes you. No date has been set yet, but its scheduled for release on cd/dl in October 🙂
Celt Islam’s eagerly awaited new album, I am Electronic is finally here. The Sufi Dub master is back with his unique genre bending sound.
