VIDEO: Adrian Younge Presents The Delfonics “Stop and Look” Feat. William Hart
This is dope. Plain and simple. Self taught musician, producer and recording engineer Adrian Younge linked up with OG Delfonics lead singer William Hart in the summer of 2011 to create a Delfonics album for the 21st century. (If Younge’s name seems vaguely familiar it’s because he’s the man who did the original ’70s Blaxploitation-inspired score for the film “Black Dynamite” and the Adult Swim animated series.)
One of the first songs the two recorded was “Stop and Look (And You Have Found Love)”. The song features Hart’s signature falsetto and backing vocals from Saudia Mills and increasingly ubiquitous Grammy nominee, Om’Mas Keith. When Younge and Hart decided to make the song the lead single for their collaborative Adrian Younge Presents The Delfonics album they enlisted director David Wong to them do a video for it. The clip is a nod to the hip-hop generation and artists who revived the Delfonics catalog by sampling it (Wu-Tang Clan, The Fugees) and features authentic fashion and dance from the early ’90s as the backdrop for a vignette about love lost and found.
