Man Parrish x Freeze Force

boogie down (bronx)

Red Bull Music Academy just scored big time with the release of a new episode of “beat:repeat NYC“!

Man Parrish was one of early hip-hop and electro's most eccentric characters. One of his biggest hits was composed to soundtrack a porn film called “Heatstroke“. When he performed at Studio 54, he was lowered from the ceiling - and Madonna was his opening act. The song that got him started, "Boogie Down Bronx," was created in one wild weekend at Man's apartment on 14th & 9th in Manhattan.“

In this episode, both reminisce about the tune, while Parrish breaks out the 808 that made it happen.
