Sadly, I don't have a sample to identify the song with, but it's been wracking my brain to identify this one 80's electro song that I remember but haven't heard since the 80's.
It is strictly an instrumental and has a (stereotypically?) Egyptian sound, as if a Pharoah was listening to a DJ as the Pyramids were being built. I've gone through the Egyptian Lover's catalog and it's not from him as far as I can tell, although tonally it's similar to his song "Egypt Egypt". It's not from Hashim or Al-Naafyish either.
The closest tracks I could compare it to are "Rainforest" or perhaps "19" (minus the vocal samples) by Paul Hardcastle. It's not his track "King Tut" although it could potentially be a different song from him, but I couldn't find anything on various streaming services that was the song I'm looking for.
Not a lot to go by, but I have one hint that might narrow it down: I come from the San Francisco Bay Area and the song was frequently played on Rick Chase's afternoon program on KMEL back in the 80's.
