‘U-Cef’s potential is as limitless as the Sahara’

(Chris Nickson).

  • “One of the most ambitious and best-executed fusions of ethnic traditionalism and urban futurism I’ve ever heard” Chicago Reader.

  • “U-Cef is a drummer and a perfect creator of distant voices and magnetic sounds” Il Manifesto.

  • “U-Cef melts technological dance rhythms and big beats with the strength of the trance elements in the halal rhythms from Morocco” World Music.

  • “Here comes the world music of the new millennium” Oor.

  • “He represents what the term world music really means today more than anyone else” L’humanité.

  • “The dance floor is a natural habitat for U-Cef” Time Out.

  • “U-Cef hasn’t just combined these elements to jump on the ‘world music’ bandwagon, he’s done it to bring the honoured tradition of Arabic music into the 21st century. Needless to say, he does it with finesse” DJ Magazine.

  • “A lesson in subtlety for all worldbeat remixers” BFM.

  • “In the same way that Outcaste did with Indian music, U-Cef has managed to show that dance music can be morphed into the most unlikely of places” Music.
