AUTHENTICALLY PLASTIC UG
‘Authentically Plastic’ is an Artist, DJ & Producer based in Kampala, Uganda. Their genre-bending sets, at once dark and 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 live noise/industrial shows. They got their start playing at secretive queer parties in the city (Kampala); which eventually led to their first festival gig at ‘Nyege Nyege’. Since then, they have played in several venues around the city for parties like Malkia (Queen) & Boutiq Electroniq, continuously exploring and reinventing their style. Authentically Plastic also curates a bi-monthly club night in Kampala called ANTI-MASS; which prioritises femme, queer & experimental DJ’s/artists. They describe ANTI-MASS as a “nomadic, femme, dance machine”. The party attracts a diverse, dedicated crowd, and aims to be a propulsive space for sonic & cultural experimentation.
Authentically Plastic’s debut solo album 'Raw Space' was released in September 2022 on Hakuna Kulala.

"A genre-bending, gender-bending journey from gqom to vogue from Authentically Plastic injected the Eternal Disco Stage dance floor with twerkable, bassy, feminine energy"
Daze Digital 2019
"Just as invigorating was the vogue, deep house and UK bass that made up Authentically Plastic's performance"
