Marley Marl on how he got into it ….
….The inspiration for me to get a big system and rock a crowd at the club
stage, basically it was my brothers crew that brought me up through it. But
then one time I went to the Paradise Garage. This was after I was on the
radio already with Frankie Crocker. One of his birthdays we went to the
Paradise Garage for one of his parties and I seen Larry Levan play, and
rock a system and rock the crowd, and I was like wooooow. That was one
of the biggest influences for me coming up. After I seen that, I was like
wooooow. It gave me hope and I was like wow, thats how I wanna rock..
