the awesome tapes from africa label continues to unearth must-hear gems for fans & the uninitiated, with this reissue of the South African "bubblegum" music stars 1988 EP, '707'.

Bubblegum music was defined by its call-and-response vocals & catchy synthesizer-led melodies. A monumental career in pop music isn't easy when the system is built against you. But South African songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist "Om" Alec Khaoli managed to do just that with his band Umoja. Every track on this EP reached No.1 in the South African pop charts during its time of release.
