REISSUE: “Hip Hop Be Bop (Don’t Stop)” by Man Parrish – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Man Parrish (Manuel Joseph Parrish) brought an electronic sound to the early 80s which was much needed for a transition of disco-street beat and high energy. His big electro hip-hop piece, “Hip Hop Be Bop (Don’t Stop)” was another big dance floor sensation as Herbie Hancock’s “Rock It”. Man’s music was bit more underground and more street soul. The album titled “Man Parrish” from 1982 is one of DJs best friends from that period.
I have taken “Hip Hop Be Bop (Don’t Stop)” into a Disco Video Mix using the 1983 film, “Wild Style” – one of the first hip hop experiences on the screen. The docu-drama outlines the graffiti movement of the time and the connection of hip hop music as an art form and introducing its feel and meaning to new feet and minds.
This Disco Video Mix is dedicated to the incredible talent of Man Parrish – thank you, Man for making our “electro dreams” come true in more ways than one!
The film was directed by Charlie Ahearn
