!! OMG, FIRST LISTEN: The king of old-school electro, The Egyptian Lover, set to release new album ‘1984’ !!

unnamed-4

It’s been a minute since The Egyptian Lover has moved audiences with his retro-electro beats that made him the icon he was in the 80’s. Well, he’s back and set to release 1984, a throwback to his original sound!

The Egyptian Lover started out as a DJ in Los Angeles in 1978-79 making mix tapes for his High School and putting personal raps on them. He then joined up with L.A.’s number 1 Dance Promotion Team Uncle Jam’s Army. Together they did parties with 10,000 party people attending. Once The Egyptian Lover started bringing his 808 drum machine to the parties he knew he had to make a record with these beats. He recorded “Breakin and Entering” soundtrack, “Dial a Freak” and “Yes Yes Yes” with Uncle Jam’s Army, and then his solo project “Egypt Egypt” which started getting played all over the Country and Europe. The Egyptian Lover started touring and never stopped. Bringing his 808 to every show to entertain the crowds today as he did over 30 years ago.

Listen to some samples of his brand new, hot, vocoded glamour below!
