Legendary Soul Group The Delfonics Resurrected in "Stop and Look" Video

Pioneering '60s Philly soul group and hip-hop sampling staple the Delfonics are best known for songs like "La-La (Means I Love You)" and "Walk Right Up to the Sun" (the latter used by Nas and Lauryn Hill on "If I Ruled the World"). L.A. producer/soul singer Adrian Younge and funk/soul label Wax Poetics have resurrected the group for the upcoming album Adrian Younge Presents The Delfonics (February 13, Wax Poetics), and the first single, "Stop and Look (And You Have Found Love)" is your new favorite soul song.

"The Delfonics represents that classic soul era from the ’60s and ’70s that our older generation has grown up listening to," said veteran L.A. DJ/turntablist Rhettmatic on the label's site. "Adrian Younge represents the generation that grew up on the classic '90s golden era of hip-hop, but yet has the knowledge and the asthetics of the '60s/'70s musical era, from a young Los Angeleano point of view. This video shows and flips the meaning of 'Old to the New.'"
