Sufiq has been recorded in 1997 and represent the first release out of the works of Bryn Jones since his sad disappearance in January 1999.
Although Soleilmoon released 4 CDs of Muslimgauze in 1999, these albums have been planned to be released before Bryn's death. Sufiq is therefore the first record to see the light of day officially since his death. And Soleilmoon announces to have more than 30 masters, which publication will be spread on several years. It is necessary to say that 1998 was the most productive year of Bryn during all his musical career.
One finds here all qualities so particular of Muslimgauze, from the out of breath percussions to the   pleasant tambourines, filled with Arabian melodies, amplified by efficient electronic touches coming as much from the vast industrial inheritance as from the dub. A beautiful success within an admirable discography of integrity, as prolific as qualitative, and it is far from stopping…
