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. (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.
