Celt Islam creates music in quite a diverse range of styles and genres. His Sufi-inspired global grooves create a sometimes meditative dub transfixing all who come across it. Celt Islam is probably best known to date for his work in the genre of his creation – Sufi-Dub – which he single-handedly 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 DJs like Bobby Friction and Nihal make his music a regular feature on their shows. Dub Reflex by Celt Islam is also featured on the groundbreaking compilation album Generation Bass presents TransNational Dubstep.

Celt Islam is one of the most gifted producers of his kind. We can trace his melodies and samples back to the most progressive part of Islam: Sufism. He is on a mission to unleash the Sufi spirits in the world of 2021; a philosophy which is essentially inclusive, tolerant of difference and other religious systems, as well as borderless by default.
