We can never get enough of Manchester based Sufi Dub pioneer Celt Islam on this blog. Although over the course of over 10 years his sound and style has not changed that much, it has nevertheless constantly evolved in a cycle that continues to swirl and sound totally unique. Just like the whirling dervishes, Celt Islam is here to stay for a long while yet and Allahu Akbar.
FRICTION is a sublime EP of oriental electronic music and Celt Islam is one of the most gifted producers of his kind. We can trace his melodies and samples back in the most progressive part of Islam: Sufism. He is on a mission to unleash the Sufi spirits in the world of 2016 ; a philosophy which is essentially inclusive, tolerant to difference and other religious systems as well as borderless by default .

“Christian, Jew, Muslim, shaman, Zoroastrian, stone, ground, mountain, river, each has a secret way of being with the mystery, unique and not to be judged.” (Mevlana Rumi)
أخبرني عندما يأتي إليك أنك تعرف لي من بلادي تضحية
Tell me that when we meet you will know me by my sacrifice
حيث يمكن أن تبقى السماء والأرض جنبا إلى جنب مع روحي
where heaven and earth can rest along with my soul
مع العلم الخاص بك الرحمة والشفقة
Knowing your mercy and compassion
وسوف تقع على وجهي ويبكي
I will fall to my face and cry
أنا لم يرفض لك ولكن قد اعتنقت جذوري
I have not rejected you but have embraced my roots
حتى أن كنت قد يكون من دواعي سرور
So that you may be pleased.
