Vintage Babies is the title of the collaborative album and super group created by Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, and MC, Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh and producer, Dj, and musical director Dj Dummy The Genius collectively known as The Vintage Babies. The Vintage Babies’ album consists of 17 soul and hip hop head bangers and features musical greats like Grammy & Oscar award winning Common, as well as some incredible songwriting and vocal help from Top Dawg’s own SIR, Malik Yusef, and Baltimore’s Rose Gold from the Polly seeds.
Vintage Babies is a Revival of the Soul, Funk, & Gospel sounds that Hip-hop was founded on. The aim of Vintage Babies is to celebrate the resilience and power of the human spirit through the utilization of the soulful sounds that have gotten us through difficult times in our history and will surely continue to do so for years to come. Vintage Babies will pull on an array of emotional strings sending you into lucid euphoric dance states in one moment then transition you into deep thought provoking storytelling about the state of humanity in the next moment with a little comic relief in between.
The first single from the Vintage Babies album is entitled “Shine Your Light” is a call to all those with ears to hear to shine their personal soul’s light in the face of any and all adversity. The lyrics paint the picture of the tough political and social climate of Urban Brown America while still managing to show you the beauty that resides inside of the struggle. This song, for all intents and purposes, is the kind of tune you’d blast out of the kitchen window at a backyard bar-b-que complete with breakdowns, turnarounds and loud family noise in the background. But the call to come together and ignite our personal power instead of being polarized by fear makes it an anthem for the human soul.
This is not the first time Dj Dummy and Maimouna Youssef have collaborated. They have toured together for several years with Rapper/Actor Common and in 2014 they released a mixtape together entitled the Reintroduction of Mumu Fresh. Dj Dummy and Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh are not new to the music scene but if your ears are new to the sounds they’ve been creating and curating for almost a decade then check out their track records.
