Egyptian Lover is a legend in certain circles but a mystery to most, an artist who was in deep with most of the west coast hip hop scene before the gangsta sound came along. Born Greg Broussard, Egyptian Lover was a rapper, DJ, and producer who was hugely influenced by the New York electro scene, as well as by the electro-funk of Zapp. This was flat-out party music: a little bit corny, but dynamite on the dancefloor. Although he never regained that prominence once gangsta rap swept all before it, his early works have become staples of electro sets across the world.
