The Egyptian Lover - Making Off "Egypt Egypt"

"Egypt Egypt" is not the first song made by The Egyptian Lover, that, we know, but probably was the first real hit from him. One of the songs that make the west coast electro scene explote, and starts the new style of Electro music that became something from its own after been just part of the way that music for Mcees was done during few years, since Afrika Bambaataa's Planet Rock was released in 1982.
With the support of the Redbull Music Academy, here we have an amazing 5 minutes video documentary, were the current Egyptian Lover, remembers and describes how he thought about that song back in 1984.
It is really a nice document, specially for those which produce Electro music.


Key Tracks: Egyptian Lover "Egypt, Egypt" from Red Bull Music Academy on Vimeo.

"Egypt, Egypt" no fue la primera canción hecha por The Egyptian Lover , eso ya lo sabemos. Pero fue probablemente su primer éxito. Fue una de las canciones que hizo que el Electro de la costa oeste explotase y se transformase en algo por si mismo, tras  haber sido simplemente el estilo con el que se hacía la música de los Mcees desde la publicación del Planet Rock de Afrika Bambaataa, en 1982.
Con el apoyo de Redbull Music Academy, aquí tenemos un documento en video de 5 minutos increíbles, dónde el Egyptian Lover actual recuerda y describe como se le ocurrió crear aquella canción en 1984.
Es un documento muy interesante, sobre todo para aquellos que producen música Electro.
