1 on 1 DJ Aludah
Real names: James Aludah Mugume.
Spin Master winner and the newly signed talent to Talent 256. Aludah started Deejaying alongside his brother John Kizza a.k.a John Smart at Najjanakumbi based Sax Hotel. He started playing for the Home Boyz in Kenya for about 5 months and in June 2009 he moved back to Uganda. Aludah started professional DJ in 2009.
When he moved back, DJing in Uganda was still very low/weak. It was actually interesting DJs could actually sabotage themselves, messing with the sound. He actually remembers of a time when he was playing in a club and the other DJ pulled out the sound cables. Djs here fear for the jobs because they have to develop talent. Now we have the influence on International DJs i.e. Dj Benny D, DJ Pinye from Kenya who have come in with the talent and changed the game, now DJ have a following, people can go to a club because of a DJ and the DJs are starting to step up.
Aludah got his break-through at a Dj showcase at Kyoto. This showcase went on for 3 consecutive weeks. This showcase was basically for Djs showing their talent not competing. When he won Pilsner’s Spin Master, it was a good experience got him publicity and earned him recognition.

The 20th Independence Anniversary Musical Extravaganza in Eritrea
Eritrea, the youngest African Nation achieved Independence 20 years ago in 1991, after a bitter 30-year long armed struggle. Eritrea fought and won the liberation struggle without any external help. Eritrea’s population of nine ethnic groups divided equally between the two religions of Christianity and Islam live in exemplary harmony and respect. Eritrea’s mountainous landscape and its modern art deco capital are a tourist’s delight.

DJ Aludah & Mr Hypeman release single
Hypeman like the name goes is known for being the loudest man, DJ Aludah on the other hand is known for having the illest scratches and one of the best Djs Uganda has to offer. These two have come together and released a single called “Cranes Song” The song also features a gentleman called who prefers to call himself Alex. The song has been produced at the Talent Africa studios and consists of languages like Luganda, English and Runyankole. In the song we hear the duo praising the Uganda Cranes and giving them morale for their games and assuring them that it’s our time (which indeed is our time). We also hear them calling on different places and people to go support the cranes. We have these two doing something that we are occasionally not used to; guess what the end product is good. Hope you enjoy.

Meet DJ Aludah
In August this year, Channel O Africa revealed the new deejay line-up for Bassment Africa. Channel O Africa now boasts eight of Africa’s leading deejays Neptune, Xclusive, Black, Mister Deejay, Creme De La Creme, Joe and Caise. We caught up with Uganda’s DJ Aludah, born James A Mugume, to get to know the self-described ambitious young man who plans to take his country to the world. He’s worked with Ugandan hip-hop group Klear Kut (Navio, J.B., The Mith), as well as Baboon Forest and other well known artists.
How did your journey with turning tables start?
My big bro was a deejay so when I was a little boy, about 13yrs old, I would sneak out and go check him out while he does his thing. He would sometimes let me play one or two songs and that’s where the passion began. So after my high school, I went off to Nairobi and joined the HomeBoyz DJ Academy where I learnt the dj’ing basics, sound engineering and music technology plus a bit of music production. While there, I went to some cool parties where I also got to meet up with some of my favorite DJs and that was the beginning of the Journey!
