Abdulla Rashim, the mysterious DJ an producer from Sweden is also the owner of its main platform, Abdulla Rashim.
With a mythical appearance rooted in the wet Botswana trails, Abdulla Rashim is a modern day mystery. Born and raised in deep hardship, he developed a rare disease that keeps the mind in a constant state of fever and confusion. With his senses and body maturing, he became a burden to his tribe, and as a result, he was cast out at the age of 15.
Deeply enraged and frustrated due the constant state of permanent psychosis, the young Abdulla roamed the nearby tribes in search for a cure to his state. After many failed attempts of healing, he finally seeked help in the tribe of Bangwato, where a local witchdoctor tried to exorcise his demons by scalping his head. During his convalescence, Abdulla could not be seen nor heard by anyone, and at the age of 17, he was declared dead. 23 years later, Abdulla was seen by locals setting up a studio in Botswana, apparently having found a cure in the hypnosis of the ”4/4".
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.
