The lyrics certainly apply to hip hop style beatdigging and sampling but ironically this song features no major samples( see the Planet Rock RG entry for details on myths of Bambaataa’s samples).

Looking for the Perfect Beat" is an electro and old school hip hop song by Afrika Bambaataa & the Soulsonic Force. It was the second single from their album Planet Rock: The Album. Released in January 1983, it served as the followup to the group's highly influential song "Planet Rock". The song was ranked at number 13 among the "Tracks of the Year" for 1983 by NME.

A review inside one of the old Tommy Boy record sleeves said "The most intricate example of space funk ever to hit vinyl." It went to show that the term "electro" was not well known yet in 1982. Looking For The Perfect Beat strongly took off on its own course away from Planet Rock and established its own space. I spent many hours on cardboard listening to this one.
