Man Parrish – Boogie Down (Bronx) (12″)

manparrishcov Keeping briefly with the old skool theme with this vocoder soaked piece of electro/hip-hop. From 1984 and featuring rapper Freeze Force, this was a pioneering dance track from Man Parrish, the original bedroom producer, in his suitably called Man Made Studios. Alongside him was fellow pioneer, Raul A. Rodriquez. The B-side is equally strong with some sounds I first heard on Yazoo’s “Situation” A true Dub mix with no rap but lots of primitive samples and loops. Wow! Long live the 808 !

Interesting making of video feature too
