Dark Skin Babies : The Movement, released February 10th, reached #13 on Amazon.com's “Hot Bestselling New & Future Releases in Jazz Fusion.” Dark Skin Babies : The Movement features a two CD set, which contains 20 tracks of non-stoppable experimental jazz funk-fusion at its best. This marks as Gemini Soul's fifth album and their most political and social conscience collection to date. "Dark Skin Babies : The Movement" is the follow-up to their 2008 release The Nefertiti Xperience.

Nashville City Paper - Gemini Soul bring the best of the 70s' into the 21st Century.
WFSK 88.1 FM - Gemini Soul's Dark Skin Babies : The Movement contains an endless fusion of rhythmic funk, swing and collective improvisation.
The Urban Music Scene - Dark Skin Babies: The Movement takes Gemini Soul ambitious jazz journey into more social commentary, musical twists and turns, and new renditions from those musical groundbreakers that touch their musical soul.
Ajamu Akinyele states "I feel this album will be appreciated by lovers of real music without boundaries, artists/musicians and likeminded individuals who think outside the box."
Gemini Soul continues to redefine jazz for a new generation. Gemini Soul's music isn't your typical jazz; it's Cyber Jazz!
Gemini Soul's performances are engaging, energizing, exciting, and displays musicianship at its best. Gemini Soul's performances have been compared to the funk fusion of bassists Marcus Miller and Stanley Clarke, the pop/funk/jazz fusion of Return To Forever and Herbie Hancock.
