Absolut classic electro. Still love this one as much as i did in '82. A desert island disc for sure...

Excerpts from my interview with Man Parrish for Electronic Standards:

"Hip Hop Bee Bop (Don’t Stop) was recorded all analogue-synthesized. I used only three pieces: Roland 808 drum machine, my PRO One, a small version of Prophet 5 for Polyphonic and special effects, and PROPHET 1 monophonic for the bass sound and some of the sequencers.

The metallic drums were created on the Prophet 5, it was a cross-modulation system – it takes one sound and modifies another sound. You have a basic simple drum and a special effect together, which made the sound metallic, of another type. You have to combine it, change them, it’s like on a two color combination: red and blue combined can give several types of purple, you have to blend it."

Quite different from today, right? Those were the times of the real 'do it yourself'. "When you open a synthesizer and get all those pre-sets, it means somebody had to program that before you. There was no pre–set, no memories. You had to do all by yourself. Sometimes, you had to work on timbers for hours. The metallic drums took me a couple of weeks to do it. Yesterday it sounded good, today not so good. So, I had to try harder."
