Egyptian Lover

Greg Broussard, US DJ.

Egyptian Lover is an American electro hop artist, one of the best known performers of the underground West Coast dance scene. He began recording around Los Angeles in 1983 and released his debut single and club hit "Egypt, Egypt", which heavily sampled Kraftwerk. This was followed by more dance hits, including "And My Beat Goes Boom" and "What Is a DJ If He Can't Scratch".

His LPs were much less popular than his singles, though 1984's On the Nile was moderately successful. After a break in the early 90s, Egyptian Lover returned in 1994 with Back from the Tomb.
