Never seen this mentioned on here.
He does lengthy bios/lessons on a whole host of pioneers and legends.
These are great to listen too. Tons of info and trivia aswell as rare unseen pics throughout each video.
Recently hes been doin livestream interviews with the likes of Melle Mel,Debbie Dee,Fearless Four,MC Globe etc....
Crash Crew livestream comin up in a few days.
Now...this guy has been on youtube for years and has put up some great cover versions/remakes....
This pretty much on repeat till the next Blastromen stuff makes its way through the cosmos.
Finland must have a time portal.
How else can it be explained that both Blastromen and this guy ended up there?
I did not know the man..but I knew his music. Commando I had listened too countless times. It also has one of the absolute best cover artworks ever.
Here a tribute from the masters .... im into well over a hundred listens of this..maybe 200 i dunno...but anyway...

Lost in Music, Micron and More Bounce are joining forces this August Bank Holiday to bring the Manchester debut for one of electro’s true pioneers... Egyptian Lover.
Taking place on Sunday 26 August 2018, from 11pm to 4am at Joshua Brooks, 106 Princess Street, Manchester, M1 6NG. The three clubbing brands are proud to bring a true pioneer of electro to the rainy city for his long overdue debut show.
*** £5 early bird tickets are only on offer until Saturday 28 July ***
Egyptian Lover has been at the forefront of the Electro scene since 1978 when he first started DJing. Getting influence from the likes of Kraftwerk and fully utilising his Roland TR-808, of which he is now synonymous with, and which is a staple piece of equipment in his DJ sets.
An established producer and artist in his own right, Egyptian Lover has a huge back catalogue of music which has included such albums as On the Nile, King of Ecstasy, Back from the Tomb and 2015’s 1984. His music has influenced DJs and producers from across the electronic music spectrum, most notably of course Andrew Weatherall, who featured two Egyptian Lover tracks, ‘I Need a Freak’ and ‘Freak-a-holic’ on his 2004 Fabric 19 mix CD. This mix brought the Egyptian Lover into the lives of a whole new generation of clubbers, DJs and producers.
He has toured the globe with his unique TR-808 heavy sound, from festivals including Primavera and Dekmantel to clubbing behemoths like Fabric, but this will be his very first show in Manchester.
Support comes from Lost in Music, Micron, More Bounce DJs, Curtis Randles and more TBA.
This is one not to miss, tickets are available now on Skiddle, starting at £5.
been on repeat since its release...and that aint gonna change for a good while . Totally destroys!!

If anyone can scan a clear high resolution of the FRESH MESS cover then soul-tees are interested in doing shirts of it.
ive bought pretty much all the hip hop ones from there.. they are based in spain but you get your stuff in around a week.
another 12 just arrived at my door saturday ....
seems they are involved in this site aswell and i got message that another 25 designs will be going up soon... including egyptian lover mantronix kraftwerk etc...
everyone email em so after 30 years or more finally some old school designs can get printed onto shirts.
You wil find Star Raid on Ebay easily enough as there is no such thing as a "rare record" these days.
However you will feel absolutely NOTHING by simply "winning" it from an online auction.
I myself bought a load of vinyls on Ebay years back....but got rid of them within weeks since it felt utterly pointless having them since there was no HUNT involved...... HUNT being the word that so many people today just do not understand.
I stupidly sold all my collection around aged 19/20 ..some 23 years back... and i will forever regret it.Even if I got back every single vinyl and cassette the magic has already gone..... It can't be replaced.
The best Electro mix from that series ..... well its the couple of seconds when The Buck stops Here goes into B-Boys Breakdance
Or maybe the split second where Home of Hip Hop goes into Terminator. .... sheer magic.
music only needs a little split second spark to make it pure gold. Regardless of genre.
Thats an interesting story bro. I posted the Grandgroove cut on here years back I remember. The Bam story has been 100% shut down all over the place. Any you can thank every fuckin pioneer for that. So damn annoying. Nobody is talking about it,and nobody wants to talk about it.... which I find both frustrating and utterly disgusting. And thats before we even get into KRS-ONE's retarded outbursts. Teacha my ass! To hell with that clown.
The recent revelations regarding Bam has nothing good whatsoever about it. But i am following it daily in the hope something gets resolved somehow.
So far Newcleus and Just-Ice ONLY have been confirmed (DJ's with laptops do NOT count as live acts)
B-Boys were offered a huge payday of 1 thousand $ split three ways but turned it down. (how could they refuse such life changing money?)
Now correct me if im wrong (which i am NOT ) but this huge mega event starts at 8pm,this leaves just 3 hours till 11pm for all "live acts" to perform. Unless ofcourse Streetsounds have some special licence which even Guns N Roses dont get without paying huge fines for playing past the live nazi curfu laws we have in the UK.
The chosen UK Fresh 2016 venue holds 800.
Just-Ice is under the impression there is gonna be a "whole lotta acts performing" if you see his video announcement. So just who else have they got lined up? Both Newcleus and Just-Ice are HEADLING so any other acts now added will be ofcourse nowhere near legandary status ....So dont be expecting anyone "iconic" to be added.
Prove me wrong please somebody.
B-BOYS have a post with a ton of replies here (including the Imperial Brothers..so forget them being added aswell)
https://www.facebook.com/events/1751887841694873/ Get your tickets fast though as 28 people have already said they are going.
UPDATE;. As usual the mods are deleting posts fast and furious. Apart from one guy who asked if anymore acts are being added...that was quickly gone...
guess who was next up to get his post deleted! CAPTAIN ROCK! Seems he was ignored regarding this event (although he would of most likely played for nothing)
and holiest of holy shit....
I just saw right now that it has been posted about on Hassan Campell's facebook page....
and the guy who committed suicide was VERY well known in the UK hip hop scene... fuck, this is just way too messed up.
Ive been following the story daily since hearing about it ...only 2 weeks or something but the news is truely terrible.
Ive also heard gay rumours about him going back to the ELECTRO ROCK event and that he was takin an interest in someone there...
however this whole underage molestation shit is just awful. i couldnt care a shit who is gay but this is just altogether far too creepy and sinister.
old school pioneers and artists are all staying quiet.They really need to speak up about it ... regardless if they support Bam or not.
there is so much to be said about this. it has tarnished hip hop history so bad yet it doesn't seem that many are realising just how much damage it has done.
For me this could not of involved anyone worse. Ive thought about it a lot, and if you would of asked me the one person who i would hate to see being exposed as a paedo...id of said Bambaataa.
For the first time I actually know how so many Jackson fans felt.
what is everyone elses take on it? im finding it even difficult to write about.
Are we gonna discuss it?

I hope he has many more old tapes to go through..
looks good. i will be checkin it out anyway!
Only heard about this few days ago while listening to a Bass Agenda interview. Does anyone have any idea when its gonna appear or other details?
Sadly and rather irritatingly it seems that 99.9% of old electro artists avoided making t shirts for some reason and still do to this very day.
Quite staggering really when i can think of thousand underground bands who dont(or didnt at the time) even have cd's out but still have/had t shirts available with their logo or demo cover on it. A t shirt is the perfect marketing tool yet can anyone find shirts by artists such as...
LA DREAM TEAM
ahh shit i cant even be bothered to list em... some of the best artists of all time yet they are beyond hopeless when it comes to merchandise...
As for shirt designs you could do.
MIXMASTER GEE MANIPULATOR COVER
TECHNO HOP LOGO
ALL THE WRECKIN CRU PICTURE COVERS ETC BY http://westcoastpioneers.com/artists/lyrrad.html
FRESS MESS PICTURE COVER
the list is endless really. just go for it.
