Eygptian Lover and Newcleus * SF * 8/4

Los Angeles-based producer Greg Broussard was the man behind pioneering hip-hop/electro fusion artist the Egyptian Lover. Comparable in influence to Soul Sonic Force’s “Planet Rock”, Man Parrish’s “Hip-Hop Be Bop (Don’t Stop)” and Pretty Tony’s “Jam theBox”, Egyptian Lover singles such as “Egypt, Egypt”, “My Beat Goes Boom”, “Dance” and “What is a DJ If He Can’t Scratch?” combined the abstract electronics of Kraftwerk and the Art of Noise with the emerging beat-heavy sound of electro and the vocal approach of rap.

Starting out in 1977 as a Brooklyn DJ collective, Newcleus went on to become one of the first hip-hop bands, playing all their own instruments. Most known for their hit “Jam On It” which still reamains a true original hip-hop classic.
