The Parisian label stillmuzik drops a very delicious compilation paying homage to the legendary Afrika Baambata. Beatmakers from across the globe take it step further into the world of beat creations; continue to read on after the jump for further backstory on Looking For The Perfect Beat… It’s encouraged at the Word Is Bond that you slap this at high volume and support… Gheeeaaaa.
In 1983, Afrika Baambata was ‘looking for the perfect beat’ with his band Soul Sonic Force.
30 years after, could he suspect that beatmaking could go so far, spreading all across the world ?
Everybody is looking for the perfect beat. Especially beatmakers.
As a tribute to Bambaata, this compilation has been trying to contribute to this quest combining the original skills of mad beatmakers.
Search for the loop, slice it, paste it, flip it, glitch it, make it right. Whatever the gear : analog, mp3, digital, software, hardware, it doesn’t matter as it sounds good.
Today’s world beatmaking scene is very prolific, some producers are famous, some are getting famous, some work in the shadow of mc’s, but everybody still looks for the perfect beat.
Dilla-ists, Pete-Rockians, Primo’s addicts, Easy-Mo Beeists, whatever school they belong to, all of the beatmakers united in the volume I of this exclusive compilation brought the finest boombap we all love.
