First things first, it’s “ThaDropout”, no DJ, Selector or any of that other stuff, just ThaDropout. Real name; Aijuka Duncan Ngabirano. I’m a music fiend, which goes without say, a music producer/DJ, born, bred and based in Uganda. I’ve performed at a number of the top spots in Kampala’s nightlife (Boda Boda, Mish Mash, FatBoyz, YOLO Lounge…to mention but a few) and still crossing more off the dynamic list. Widely known for my themed mixes like SOUNDS OF THE SOUTH (Kwaito/S.A. House), BEATS N SIXTEENS (Hiphop and R&B), JUMP N SHOUT (House/EDM), AFRO HIPPY (African Hiphop), AFRICAN PARTY (Afropop & African EDM), NOSTALGIA (Old Skool/Oldies…basically throwback) and many more. I’m musically elite (if there is such a thing) and anything but cliché so if you are tired of that seasonal monotony in the nightclub and radio playlists, I’m the guy to take care of you. I don’t dwell too much on how good people think I am but rather where I’ll be in times to come so this is where you should forget all my past achievements…#XTATIC [monthly mix collection] episodes coming soon plus there’s more to come. I'm also the official DJ for the Uganda Lyricist Lounge. Keep up with my activity (upcoming theme nights, events, media links, news and more) on Twitter (@ThaDropout) or Facebook (Duncan Ngabirano). For bookings, +256 791 102 225 or email@example.com (contact in advance). I’ll let my work speak for itself but remember, I’m anything but cliché. SUPPORT.

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.
