The first thing that has to be noted is that this is an Adrian Younge album. With his signature sound that may sound vintage but simply uses more vintage recording techniques. It’s obvious that Adrian Younge grew up in an age inhabited by hip hop as we know it. It’s also obvious that he was influenced by Thom Bell and the Philadelphia sound which was evidenced by a previous release with William Hart (Poogie) of The Delfonics. That release may have showcased a familiar voice with a familiar sound, but obviously with a new man steering the way forward as it also lets us get a glimpse into a range of his vision forward.
