Grew up in Colorado, went to school in the midwest in the early '90s, lived in San Diego from '98 to '05, and am now in Portland.

My records and CD's are not for sale. I'm happy to answer any questions, however.

I own a white label of this record that has some Cheech & Chong samples at the end, with weird sounds in the background. Basically, the album ends, and then the spot from Up In Smoke where Chong gives Cheech acid appears.

Karl Bartos (formerly of Kraftwerk), after releasing some very mainstream, poppy stuff as Electric Music lately, really came through on the remix to show he still has strong electro blood.
posted a review of Afrika Bambaataa & Soulsonic Force - Looking For The Perfect Beat. over 15 years ago
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 ... See full review

This was the third in a string of four MIGHTY Soulsonic Force electro 12"s. The record cover was designed by Bob Camp of Marvel Comics (as were the two Newcleus albums). The video for this track had some of the same scenes as the Planet Rock video. ... See full review
