King of the 808 drum machine, forefather of west coast rap, and possibly the most entertaining electro live act on earth, Egyptian Lover is returning to Bloc to follow up his legendary 2009 show.

His classic hits need little introduction, save to say that tracks like  ‘Egypt, Egypt’, ‘Freak-a-holic’ and ‘I Need A Freak’ are still staples in the sets of everyone from Jackmaster to Juan Atkins to this day, and pretty much set the template for 808 lovers everywhere for the last 3 decades. More recently, he’s collaborated with Jamie Jones, M.I.A. and James Pants, and released the well-received album ‘1984’ in 2011. The return of the original pimped out bling hero to Bloc is absolutely not to be missed.
