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 Dubstep / Drum & Bass and collaborates it with Islamic/world grooves to create a Dub driven dance crossover. The unique sound of Celt Islam is a fusion of western and middle eastern influences combined with a futurist Islamic dub attitude. Open the doors of your mind and soul to Electro Sufism!!

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 Nihal make his music a regular feature on their shows.

Celt Islam has released 4 albums titled Dervish ,AL Mizan , Baghdad and Urban Sutra which 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 .

Urban Sutra album reviews :
"Whilst Dubstep is dying a commercial death thanks to the awful range of stuff coming out of it nowadays, Celt Islam is keeping the flag flying for authentic dub sounds " { DJ UMB / Generation Bass }

" Urban Sutra' quite honestly is like nothing you've heard before. Lazy journos, could and probably have made comparisons to what The Engine Earz are doing and even The Nasha Experience but that would be wrong. The only comparison I would make is, if you imagine what Badawi out of New York was doing over a decade ago, which was well ahead of it's time and inject 2012 mastery into that sound, then you may get close. But quite honestly Celt Islam's sound is well thought out, he is a visionary and musically speaking he is on his own. " { DJ Pathaan / Globetronica }
