abdulla rashim



Abdulla Rashim represents the Sweden based music label launched in 2011 who serves as its main platform for the onwer’s releases, Abudlla Rashim.

Not much is known of the mysterious producer Abdulla Rashim. Being situated in Sweden and having released two records, ASAYITA and GIZAW in 2011 on his own imprint, Abdulla Rashim Records, Abdulla keeps both his sound and himself below the surface.

His dark, psychedelic tracks have been making their way into the sets of those who know, four of which can be found on RA’s latest podcast featuring LA based Developer. We’re excited to present this rising artist and his sound.

Submerged in both rhythm and mystery, Abdulla Rashim's shadowy aesthetic floats in balance with his uncompromising work. Wholly dedicated to his ideas and sound, Rashim's quest for renewal and the importance of his craft has reflected well both internationally and locally, where he is praised alike. A listening ear and pure emotion is what his rhythms demand and what keeps him on top of his mission.

Abdulla Rashim may be part of these new puzzles of techno sphere. A handful of its assets maximum, on his eponymous label « Abdulla Rashim Records », a name that surprizes, a confidential web communication with only visual a dark photos, a brown man, tan skin, with a big moustache and a résumé showing employment at the Center of Dubai Aerospace. These elements aroused some interrogations. During the month of Ramadan, Abdulla Rashim played openly for a set of 4 hours of Techno on the Concrete ship. We asked him a few questions.

Mystery is a fundamental part of Abdulla Rashim and his music. Little is known of him: he hails from Sweden, runs his own label (Abdulla Rashim Records) and has released on well respected labels such as Studio Barnhus (one Sweden’s most important labels), Madrid’s Semantics (run by Svreca) and Munich’s Prologue. It is therefore his music that best defines him and speaks on his behalf: long developing rhythmic techno, ocean deep with subtle arrangements that have caught the attention of DJs and genre gurus across the continent.
