The Egyptian Lover has been bringing you that sound you have enjoyed for over 35 years. Some call it Electro, some call it Hip Hop, some call it Old School, some call it Rap, but he calls it "Dance Music". Egyptian Lover makes music to make you dance.
He started out as a DJ in 1978-79 and became the headlining DJ for Uncle Jam's Army in 1982. He has been in the music business all of his life. His first time in the studio he recorded the "Breakin' & Entering" soundtrack. A true "Electro" recording and the first of its kind.
Getting his style from Kraftwerk and enjoying the Roland TR-808 drum machine, programming it like a mad man, he loved beats and no one was making beats back then. You could only get a (bonus beat) at the end of a song on a 12" single. So He made his own. After that He went into the studio with Uncle Jam's Army and recorded "Yes, Yes, Yes" with beats that sound like that "Breakin' & Entering" soundtrack and "Dial-a-Freak" one of his all time favourites.
