Egyptian Lover records didn't start appearing until several years after the New York and Miami electro scenes were already in full swing, by the mid-'80s Egyptian Lover cuts like "Egypt, Egypt" were standards among club DJs, particularly in the breakdance scene. Early cuts such as "Computer Love" and "Dance" were among Egyptian Lover's most experimental, with the material appearing through the latter half of the '80s increasingly flirting with full-blown rap by adding more vocals and melodic hooks. While more of his material dates from the latter phase, it's his earlier releases that remain his most accomplished, and they're routinely namechecked by a new generation of producers such as Autechre and I-F inspired by electro's first wave. Also a member of Uncle Jamm's Army and the force behind a half dozen labels including Freak Beat and Egyptian Empire. After nearly a decade, Egyptian Lover released the digitally edited compilation "Pyramix", then hit the studio again and produced new tracks in the same funky electro style for the album "Back From the Tomb".
In 2011, Hourglass founded a blog devoted to promoting new talent in music. Soon after, she became one of the editors and moderators of popular Hip Hop startup RapGenius.com and served as Music Editor for TheWellVersed.com. All of these jobs helped her discover her love for mixing music, and there’s been no looking back since her rst gig in 2012.
After working her way into the dj booths of Atlanta’s most notable venues without any major backing, Hourglass has found a family in WERC Crew, an event production collective of creative curators and in uencers. With WERC, Hourglass not only performs, but plans and executes each event with her partners from beginning to end. Currently, Hourglass is a resident DJ at Atlanta venues El Bar and Negril Village.
Most recently, Hourglass graced the Toyota DJ stage of the A3C Festival, performed at SXSW Festival along with One Music Fest, Afropunk’s Red Bull Sound Select, Milk & Cookies Fest, and Afropunk ATL: The Carnival of Consciousness. A concrete rose who has found her place in a community full of talent using her motto “Think Outside the Clock,” Hourglass’s style ranges from future beats and house to reggae, hip hop, top 40, and everything in between.
