Algerian-born, Bay-based DJ and musicmaker Cheb i Sabbah was an international star with an incredible past. But he will always be known here as a beautiful soul and teacher who incited a true spiritual devotion in his fans — and, the godfather of the global house movement, as one of the most creative DJs to coalesce strains of Indian ragga, reggae riddim, African percussion, and more into a wonderfully danceable mix.

A mix, it turns out, that influenced a generation of musicians and dancers and introduced many to the metaphysical joys of a sonic melting pot.

After he had fought cancer for a long time — there were several fundraisers for him over the past few years, which helped keep his music flowing — his family announced his passing this afternoon via his Facebook page. The statement, and some of our favorite tunes, after the jump. We’ll miss him greatly.
