As a DJ, Producer & Artist based in Kampala, Uganda, Authentically Plastic’s sound is necessarily political. Dubbed “Demon of the Nile” by conservative Ugandan media & politicians, Authentically Plastic has never shied away from disrupting norms & expectations. They run a roving, riotous, club night in Kampala called ANTI-MASS; which opens up space for femme, queer & experimental artists in an increasingly repressive social climate.
Risk-taking in this political environment informs Authentically Plastic’s sound, which has an accelerated, densely layered, improvisational feel. Their sets, at once dark & playful, use Gqom, Vogue & Techno as a base for exploring other unknown sounds. Their music is influenced by anything from quasi-electronic Northern Ugandan rhythms, to early acid experiments, and Afro-futurism. Their fiery Debut LP is scheduled for release on Hakuna Kulala in September 2022.

Projektinfo

A collaboration with Munich-based performance artist Keith Zenga King. We’d like to realize an artistic work that combines King’s practice of poetry/spoken word, and my approach to sound design. The final piece will be a live performance exploring ideas around affective/sonic intensity, queerness, and memory.
