” APPEAR AS YOU ARE , BE AS YOU APPEAR” -RUMI

Celt Islam is an English Muslim, a Sufi and a member of the northern British alternative dub/breaks outfit “Nine Invisibles ” and ” Analogue Fakir ” . Celt-Islam uses a fusion of music from Dub/Electro/Drum andBass and collaborates it with Islamic/world grooves to create a Dub driven dance crossover.

Celt Islam has played at various Dub/DnB/Dubstep nights in UK and Europe alongside Public Enemy’s Bomb Squad { Hank Shocklee } , Fleck, DJ UMB, The Orb, Hardfloor , Engine Earz, Rex Offender aka Smart Moneky,DJ Bobby Friction, DJ Pathaan and was chosen by the BBC to play the BBC Introducing stage Glastonbury 2010. {http://www.bbc.co.uk/glastonbury/2010/artists/celtislam/ }

Celt Islam works with many musicians and artists including Inder Goldfinger {Ian Brown-Natacha Atlas-Apesta} Mick Reed { 1919 , Ship of fools and Nine Invisibles } , Oova Matique , Dr weevil, Bongo Chilli , D Bo General and DanMan {Iration Steppers}.

He creates music in quite a diverse range of styles and genres. His Sufi inspired Global

Grooves create a sometimes Meditative Dub transfixing all who comes across it. His work includes Electro-Dub driven Drum and Bass to satisfy the dance world.

Celt Islam is probably best known to date for his work in the genre of his creation – Sufi-Dub – which he singlehandedly developed and continues to define. He does so in collaboration with well known names such as Inder Goldfinger, tabla player for Stone Roses legend, Ian Brown’s band and Natacha Atlas and Dawoud Kringle who has recorded and performed with the likes of Lauryn Hill.

Celt Islam’s Sufi-Dub work has appeared on some best selling compilations including two by UK global music tastemakers Shisha Sound System. Offers are currently on the table from other tastemakers and labels for licensing of his works for compilations.

He is also beginning to gain greater exposure in the UK as BBC Radio 1xtra and BBC Asian network’s DJ’s like Bobby Friction and Pathaan make his music a regular feature on their shows.

“Believe me! if you love Dubstep but with an emotional heart beating its very core your gonna need this album!” – Bobby Friction

“Celt Islam using his personal dialect within the universal language of music, manages to soothe the soul and uplift the spirit with this truly magnificent album of a Sufi Dub persuasion” – DJ Pathaan

Celt Islam has released 2 albums titled Dervish and AL Mizan and is a mixture of Heavy heavy basslines, dub step, dancehall and d+b wrapped up with a very dubby world music sound. The album features Bongo Chilli , Inder Goldfinger , Danman { Iration steppers } , Dawoud Kringle and Masala .
