    In the latest episode of his DubSpot web video series “Classic Recipes,” Marley Marl fires up the Akai MPC Renaissance and recreates his production on MC Shan ‘s “The Bridge.” As usual this is far more than a simple tech tutorial, with Marley sharing stories about the origins of the song, from whom he got his copy of “Impeach the President” and how the now-famous reversed sample of Magic Disco Machine’s “Scratchin'” became the song’s signature instrumental hook. Also, a summation of how Marley’s lost drum reel played a part in the BDP-Bridge wax war .
