AUTHENTICALLY PLASTIC

Electronic Agitator

 

Dubbed “Demon of the Nile” by conservative Ugandan media & politicians

for a subversive performance at Nyege Nyege festival in September 2019, 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, while exploring new potentials for sonic & artistic expression in an increasingly repressive social climate. The urgent need for subversion & risk-taking in this political environment informs Authentically Plastic’s sound, which has an accelerated, densely layered, improvisational feel.

As a DJ, Producer & Artist based in Kampala, Uganda, Authentically Plastic’s
approach to sound is necessarily political.

 

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.

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

Just as invigorating was the vogue, deep house and UK bass that made up Authentically Plastic's performance
