Gumba Fire: Bubblegum Soul & Synth Boogie in 1980s South Africa
Soundway boss Miles Cleret and Afrosynth Record’s DJ Okapi unearth an impeccable selection of dusty gems from the crates spanning the 1980s in South Africa. Stripped-down synth jams, silky vocals and funky drum machines soundtrack an era of deep political unrest; providing a dance-fueled, soulful escape that still sounds as fresh as when the songs were originally released.
