Just when you thought your anticipation for the upcoming Delfonics album produced by Adrian Younge couldn’t get any more intense, the remix to first single “Stop And Look (And You Have Found Love)” had to go and drop and mess your whole day up (in a good way, of course). Featuring production from Detroit veteran Black Milk and verses by Souls of Mischief, the reworked version accomplishes just what a good remix is supposed to – Black Milk perfectly chops up Adrian Younge’s superb original production into a smooth moving boom-bap beat, complementing the title track’s gritty retro-soul sound without overpowering it. William Hart of The Delfonics brought the Philly sound to new levels at the end of last year when he performed with The Roots at Okayplayer’s Holiday Jam, but we don’t want to rub in your saltiness if you weren’t there to see it yourself (watch the recap video here, though; rub, rub.). Not to mention Souls of Mischief do nothing less than expected by running circles around Black Milk’s well-crafted sound, so there’s really nothing not to love about it. Listen to the track below and make sure you’re ready for Adrian Younge Presents The Delfonics when it drops on March 12 via Wax Poetics Records.
