Abdulla Rashim

Back in 2011, a young Swedish producer adopted the name Abdulla Rashim and started releasing music through an eponymous label he'd set up. "I like not having to be myself," he explained.

Back in 2011, a young Swedish producer adopted the name Abdulla Rashim and started releasing music through an eponymous label he'd set up. "I like not having to be myself," he explained. "I don't want my own name to be out there, or my own personality." Rashim instead created an identity through sound. His records explored techno's deepest, darkest spaces and came out on pitch-black labels like Prologue and Semantica. He also maintained a flow of 12-inches on his own label, a series that took its titles from Ethiopian cities he'd visited. Rashim's style became more distinct with each releaseā€”he increasingly explored irregular rhythms and his sound design sharpened; it was as if he more clearly understood what he wanted to say. In 2014 Rashim released Unanimity, his debut album, and the ideas he'd been playing with over the years became fully realised. The record came out on Northern Electronics, a label Rashim started in 2013 to release other people's music, which was a further indication that the world he'd created around his alias was now fully formed. « hide
