The Egyptian Lover started out as a D.J. in Lafayette, Louisiana then moved to Los Angeles and started promoting dance events with Unique Dreams Entertainment, which would later change its name in 1983 to Uncle Jamm's Army.

Each production took the Acid Arab concept and ran with it, laying bare the project's potential. The release was followed b...
