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 20 charting singles and won a Grammy for their massive hit "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)."

Los Angeles producer/composer Adrian Younge envisioned a modern-day Delfonics album and pitched the idea to William, who hopped a plane from Philly to L.A. and began work on what would become 2013's Adrian Younge Presents The Delfonics. Younge brings a unique perspective on modern rhythm and blues here. 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.

Younge now makes this breathtaking musical outing available in a never before issued instrumental edition on his own Linear Labs imprint.
