Free Egyptian Lover Tickets



Egyptian Lover is one of those old names that seems to be popping up in all the right places these days. After a string of highly successful Kraftwerk inspired electrofunk/hip hop 12 inches in the early and mid 80's (somewhat similar in style to the work of Mantronix and Africa Bambaataa, not to mention Giorgio Moroder and a variety of European slow motion disco acts), Egyptian Lover, a Los Angeles based producer, seemed to sink into obscurity for more than a decade.

In the past couple of years however, there has been a reemergence of interest in his work amongst critics and DJs due to the rise of early 80's electrofunk, disco, and early hip as fashionable points of inspiration in electronic music circles. And after one of his records was reissued by the highly respected Warp in 2006, Egyptian Lover hit the road again as a DJ and has apparently been touring constantly since.

Fortunately for us, Egyptian Lover will be performing at Minc on Friday night with Sober, and the people from frescogear.com were nice enough to hook us up with 4 pairs of tickets to the show to give away to you (Oh, and check out this interview with him over at Central Booking's blog for more info on the guy).

Just email weshotjrtix@yahoo.com any time between now and 10am on Thursday if you want to try and win a pair.
