Anthony Ssewabuga better known by the Alias Aethan, is a Ugandan record producer. He started out listening to music through which he grew a penchant for sound and production. His Brother recalls seeing him spending a considerable amount of time listening to a particular song on replay while paying attention to detail, variations and the beat with impeccable concentration which he found boring. He thought music was meant to be enjoyed, not to put one to task. It wasn’t until a friend introduced Aethan to Fruity Loops, a digital audio production workstation in which he picked interest and learnt how to make beats plus more about production. He got his professional start when his brother hooked him up with Klear Kut (Ugandan rap group) in 2007, a move that pushed him to take mainstream production into consideration. Aethan has since worked with artists such as The Mith on So UG, Fire, Big Is Me, Go Hard, and more, Navio on Ngalo, Nnawuliranga, Leka Kwenyumiriza, One and Only, Trouble and much of his catalogue, Klear Kut on Eyo Yange, Independent Woman featuring Peter Miles, Fresh featuring P-Unit from Kenya, worked with GNL on Ani Yali Amanyi, Wololo, Ruyonga on Blood Fire Smoke Vapour, Victory, Lilian Mbabazi on Get Out The Door, Flex D’Paper (with whom they run a partnership in Rapaholix Music), LugaFlow Army on The Aeth Way, AirPorTaxi on 808s & Heart breaks, Don Mc on Yes Yes among others. Aethan has become known for fusing African percussion and artistry with Western electronic and synth sounds cemented by solid drum patterns and an appetite for sampling, a style that he says is as a result of his early musical observations in the works of American production leading men like RZA, Kanye West, Just Blaze with the way they turned Motown classics into heavy hitting rap beats with a soulful fabric, more so Timberland who has continuously re-invented his sound. With such insight, Aethan has gone ahead to create his own lane and localize those ideas, tapping inspiration from the rich sound of the African beat to make music for a global audience. He is currently working on a project that he dubbed “The Aeth Way” in honour of the way he crafts his productions; Aethan produced most of his past works while at College in his hostel room, a factor that he says inspired a unique level of creativity in a setting that was on the users end.
His real names, he goes by the names Kyagambidwa Geoffrey. He describes himself as an all rounder when it comes to music to me I think he might come near to the real definition of a musician. He continues to say he is a simple God fearing and friendly to all classes of people. Chagga studied at Mengo Primary School , Light College Katikamu and Kawempe High. Chagga started singing in Namirembe Cathedral Church Choir (what happened all these guys seem to have started with God), during this time he joined Secondary school where he decided to form an r`n`b group called Extra Grim members included Michael Chris now in UK doing Gospel, Martin Ruteta, quit music went to Campus, Isaac who is based in Germany doing secular music too and lastly Benon the other half of the famous duo Benon & Vamposs. After all this he changed his style and started his journey in the hip-hop scene. He started The Bataka now the Bataka Underground. Now Chagga says before it become Bataka Underground, when it was still called Bataka, they basically rapped in Luganda. At this time the Underground was a separate team. These basically rapped in English. Bataka consisted of Chagga and Larat now in UK and Underground consisted of Momo, Krayzie Native. These two merged to form the Bataka Underground. They were later joined people like Babaluk, Lyrical G and Brian and many more. So at that time hip-hop was not selling or was not yet noticed so he started looking for another style. Chagga started Afro Beat style. He started by backing up Chameleone. Later he and Chameleone formed the Leone Island Crew which consists of guy like Weasel, Mowzey, Mr X, Lizard and many more. During that time, he was releasing singles on Chameleone`s albums like “Yoono” on his “Dorotia album”. All this time he was trying to discover himself.
From an early age, The Mith, showed he had a lot of love for the performance arts, especially music. But it wasn’t until he met the rest of his Klear Kut members that he decided to take his love for music seriously. Along with Klear Kut, they managed to release 3 albums that have received critical acclaim. ‘Mind, Body and Soul’, their first album garnered them 2 nominations at the all Africa KORA Awards (Best Hip-Hop Artist and Revelation of the year), making them Uganda’s first ever group to receive such success. They went ahead to record their second album, ‘K-Squared’ which got them nominations in Uganda’s own PAM Awards and with the release of their first single, Murder of the Crows, the group became Uganda’s first artists to have a video played on MTV Base Africa. And ..Klear Discussions..which they recorded with Percussion Discussion. The album also managed to get them nominated for KORA Awards (Best African Act). The Mith's first solo project in form of a mixtape; September Reign Volume 1, was released in January 2010 going on to receive critical acclaim all over Uganda. The Mith's first Album-The Week of September, under management group Kinetic Management Group was released on 7th May 2012 to a large positive response. Right now, The Mith is working on his second album. Artists We Also Like KlearKut, Navio, Lyrical G, Biggie, P-Square, Unique, Kanye West, Common, Proverb
From the heart of Africa comes the novel sound of a rich panache of music. Tamba brings an atypical feel to a cultural genre suffused with a sundry of folklore sounds from across her homeland, Uganda. Born Sara Mutamba in Kano, Nigeria, Tamba was raised in Uganda where, at a tender age and with her mother’s encouragement and grandmother’s folk influence, she nurtured her affection for singing. She sung occasionally in church with two of her younger brothers and in the year 2000, along with them, formed the acclaimed gospel a capella group ‘SALT’. In it’s four-year lifespan, the soulful group performed in churches, at weddings and corporate events. A Bachelor of Arts graduate from Makerere University and majoring in English literature, Tamba took a break from music and moved to World Vision in Geneva Switzerland, where she took up an internship. She later joined the Global Fund, also in Geneva. She then returned to Uganda and worked for a couple of corporate companies while following her musical dream, a pursuit that seemed frustrating at the time. She again halted her music in 2005 and only resumed singing in 2007, performing at weddings and corporate functions. In 2008 she joined afro-jazz-pop band Qwela as a vocalist and songwriter until 2010 when she begun to cultivate her own forte. In 2011 Tamba launched her solo career and is currently working on her debut album. Fondly described by her fans as ‘the small girl with the big voice’, Tamba is a rare gem. Her passion for African sounds has persuaded her music and songwriting into a wealthy blend of authentic African artistry.
Jolly while seething with rage. Enygma is a complex walking contradiction. Often delightful and modest but conceited and obnoxious enough to talk of himself in the third person. ENYGMA is an enigma. This dude performs with a facemask, which has kept his identity away from the public. That is how he chooses it to be. His fascination with thug poetry and rap began in primary school. And he is fast becoming one of Kampala's beloved rappers. At this point in his music career, Enygma does not have to struggle to prove anything. He is already getting there, with an endless array of classic beats that rekindle memories of MC Hammer, Tupac Shakur and the like, blurring the lines between rap's underground affinities and modern hip-hop. His album, Enygma of the State, sounds like a conflicting tug-of-war between the Ugandan MCs he features, with him lyrically dominating the whole album as the rest clean up the remains. Although the 16-track album features renowned rappers like Navio, The Mith, Young Nick and Keko, he topples them with his unique lyrics. Hustler's Night, the fifth song on the album, is a better demonstration of Enygma as a younger sibling surpassing the renowned MCs, his older siblings. This gives the album a triumphant and celebratory touch. Corporate Flow featuring Jay Kay and Young Nick is consistent with old school hip-hop beats, commending and praising a corporate in a tie going to the studio after work because he has passion for music. Could he be talking about himself? Well, he is an enigma this one. The other tracks tackle some really serious topics. See the World is an impressive glimpse into urban homicide, other deaths and disasters. Smile of a Child fails to sound out because of a contrived chorus, thanks to Naava, who does it. However, Demise, still featuring Jay Kay, makes a difference with the modern day moving beats of the west coast as it questions MCs for unnecessarily flaunting their fabricated possessions to the innocent listener. Ultimately, Enygma of the State is a very noble attempt at unity, but its variation stalls the project, resulting it into a recording that buckles under the weight of its own pressure. But he won't lose because he has got catchy punchlines any hip-hop fan as keen as I am, will tug onto in appreciating the real MC Enygma is.
