In honor of #tbt (Throwback Thursday), it’s only appropriate to bring up the name, Egyptian Lover. A legendary producer, artist and DJ, getting recent props being named one of the “top LA producers in history”, he’s frequently been called “the West Coast’s answer to Afrika Bambaataa”. Developing a rep for rocking crowds of thousands across the world, he’s prestigiously headlined venues like the Sydney Opera House and the mark he’s made on 808 infused electronic hip-hop and the culture in general is undeniable.
Catching up with Egyptian Lover prior to djing a Red Bull Music Academy epic event with The LA Dream Team, Arabian Prince and Rhettmatic, I discovered we have a mutual love for Prince, respect for “digging in the crates”, could joke about 80’s fashion (including Jeri Curls), his new 1984 album and more. Check out the videos, interview soundclips and like Egyptian Lover on Facebook for more album and tour info!
