The Egyptian Lover

egyptian lover

The Egyptian Lover, real name Greg Broussard, first came onto the LA electro scene with his breakdance classic, “Egypt, Egypt” in 1984. His sound is heavily influenced by Kraftwerk and Afrika Bambaataa as well as Prince, Zapp and other electronic black soul artists.
He went on to have a string of hits, including the track we have hear, the classic “What Is A DJ If He Can’t Scratch”. These were taken from his album from his 1984 album, “On The Nile” , which still remains a classic for many b-boys.
The lover went on to release two more albums in the 80’s, 1986’s “One Track Mind” and 1988’s “Filthy”, all worth a listen. He then returned in 1994 with “Back From The Tomb” and again the next year with the “Pyramix” album.
