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.

En 1983, Afrika Baambata était «à la recherche du beat parfait» avec le Soul Sonic Force.
30 ans après, qui aurait pu penser que le beatmaking serait allé si loin, se répandant aux quatre coins de la planète?
Chaque beatmaker est à la recherche du beat parfait.
Comme un hommage à Bambaata, cette compilation, à travers le talent original de ces artistes venant d'un peu partout, fait un état des lieux de cette recherche perpétuelle en 2013.
Quelle que soit le matériel utilisé: analogique, mp3, numérique, vinyle,
La manière finalement importe peu.
L'essentiel étant que ça sonne bien.
La scène du beatmaking à travers le monde est aujourd'hui très prolifique, Certains producteurs sont célèbres ou sont en train de le devenir, d'autres travaillent dans l'ombre d'un ou de plusieurs MCs, mais tous sont dans cette recherche du beat parfait.
Dilla-istes, Pete-Rockiens, disciples de Premier, Easy-Mo Bee-istes, quelle que soit l'école à laquelle ils appartiennent, tous les beatmakers réunis dans le volume I de "Looking For The perfect Beat" ont contribué à travers leur morceau à fournir une forme de réponse à cette quête.
Ils ont su surtout faire sonner à merveille ce boombap que nous aimons tant.
