    Summary

    The Delfonics is the quintessential sweet-soul group. Hailing from Philadelphia, the crew formed in the mid-'60s, with the definitive original lineup as lead vocalist and songwriter William Hart, his brother Wilbert Hart, and mutual high-school friend Randy Cain (later replaced by Major Harris). With the help of producer/arranger Thom Bell-and with William's signature falsetto-the Delfonics set the tone for all other sweet-soul groups that would follow.

    Between 1968 and 1974, the Delfonics had twenty charting singles and won a Grammy for their massive hit "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)." Out of their twenty hits, William Hart wrote or cowrote eighteen of them, thirteen with collaborator Thom Bell, like "La-La Means I Love You," "He Don't Really Love You," and "Ready or Not Here I Come (Can't Hide From Love)."

    After five albums, the Delfonics would break up for good in 1975. Brothers William and Wilbert parted ways and over the years often toured separately with different forms of the group. But over forty years after writing his first hit, lead singer and songwriter William Hart has put his unmistakable falsetto back on analog tape and reinvented the Delfonics brand for a new generation.

    Los Angeles producer/composer Adrian Younge envisioned a modern-day Delfonics album and pitched the idea to William Hart, who hopped a plane from Philly to L.A. and began work on a new album for Wax Poetics Records. Younge helped to reshape the Delfonics by bringing on board two excellent young vocalists, Loren Oden and Saudia Mills-as well as Om'Mas Keith on the single "Stop and Look (And You Have Found Love)"-to work alongside William.

    Adrian Younge is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist who traded in his MPC sampler for a carefully curated studio of authentic gear, rocketing to international recognition after composing the original score for the 2009 cult comedy Black Dynamite. The release of his 2011 psychedelic-soul concept album, Something About April, generated a large following in the hip-hop community, leading him to produce the upcoming Ghostface Killah concept album, Twelve Reasons to Die.

    Coming from a hip-hop background, but immersing himself in classic soul, Younge brings a unique perspective on modern rhythm and blues. "I was studying Delfonics stuff for years," Younge reveals. "I studied Delfonics to do the Black Dynamite stuff. I've been a fan, and I've just studied their music for so long that when I got the opportunity to do this, it just really blew my mind."

    From the very beginning, it was Younge's intention to create an old-school Delfonics vibe but offer a very hip-hop-informed perspective. There are distinguishing musical elements that Delfonics fans will recognize, like the electric sitar guitar, the French horn, string arrangements, and the tympani. "I want people to expect something classic but not expect to hear the same thing rehashed," Younge says. "I want to push it forward. William and I strived to push this forward.

    Comment: This is something that the older heads and the young cats could all feel. I am loving how the old school soul music and the hip hop come together to make this Delfonics music pop for the new gen. This is on some bbq with the crew type sounds.

    Comment: Adrian Younge is just the greatest thing out there right now. He's bringing back The Delfonics and putting out GFK's new album. Amazing. The hype for both of these albums is huge for me right now. Ordering now, without any hesitation. I'm sure that - just like Mr. Younge's other two releases, Black Dynamite and Something About April - this Delfonics album will be undeniable, very entertaining, and extremely funky.
