DJ MAG review of Beneath The Underground: Collected Raps 2000-2018

“…it’s another great track from UK/US duo, Madison Washington, as they return with No Cliché… a ballad inspired by that selfless act, but without falling into the cliché trap.”- Gingerslim

“Anyway, this one’s chilled beat and falsetto harmonies (from the mysterious A Brother Is…warbling away in the background with his newfangled name) is certainly one to get your significant other onside, and for that reason alone is not to be sniffed at.”- Monkeyboxing

“Always cool stuff coming from Madison Washington, and this is the new one, it’s damn fine, Love it…” –Simone @ Naked Lunch Soho Radio

Madison Washington continue their hot streak with the laidback ‘No Cliché’, an after-party groove with the right amount of nous behind it.” –Rapture & Verse

“The next single from NY/Sheffield duo Malik Ameer and Thatmanmonkz, better known as Madison Washington, is entitled No Cliché.” –Groovement.uk

“…They’re kind of channeling a psychadelic element, great track…” –Nemone BBC6

“…Baytrified’s Pfunk groove sits beneath scathing lyrics that document the history of the Bay Area from its immigrant beginnings to its current gentrification.” –JDP @ Buzz Magazine Wales

“Check out “Baytrified” a funkstrong tribute to ole school Oakland. Local poet/MC shares his family’s history, the rich culture & inspiring movements birthed in this community and the many changes as of late. Dope video to match! “- DJ Moni of NuYorktricity

“…Brand new track from Madison Washington partly American, partly British, really good combination Hip Hop with some crazy Max Roach samples in that…”-Gilles Peterson WorldwideFM

“BAYTRIFIED is an impressive funk-flavored new hip hop track by Madison Washington featuring JTOTHEC on Def Pressé” –Akahti Magazine

“This cut sees Malik once again using his platform to do more than just hype a crowd… Consequently, Malik spits with his brand of poetic venom”- Itchysilk

“I got a new chunk of on the show tmro and it’s funky like and u need it in ur ears . Check into 12-2pm ” –Simone Marie Naked Lunch Soho Radio

“Combined with thatmanmonkz’s production, the track sounds like George Clinton meets Gil Scott Heron in all the best ways.” –GingerSlim

” Gahh – bloody hipsters – they’re everywhere. No wonder the beat is a weird off-kilter affair based around a drum loop with a time signature lurch within the drum loop and falsetto P-Funk wailing.” –Monkeyboxing

“Awash with the funk, it recalls George Clinton both in production (courtesy of the other half, Sheffield’s thatmanmonkz) plus keys and vocals from Belgian soul maestro JTOTHEC, as its lyrics address the gentrification of the area.” –Groovement 

“Check this out, it’s awesome… We love that, if you’re out there.”- Simone Marie Naked Lunch, Soho Radio

“Very very decent Hip Hop…” Cherrie Flava @ Soho Radio
“‘Facts’ is rugged and fuzzy as fuck, the vocals double-tracked until they reach a genuinely New Kingdom-esque pitch of groggy madness, the beats hitting those same divine pleasure-centers that the Son Of Sam album so thoroughly ravaged this year…”- DJ MAG
“And so it is that Malik spits venom over relentless rock guitar-laced boom-bap and whooping sirens about all those Facts that get lost or doubted amid a welter of fake news or hit with a D notice or branded paranoia. Until, a leak gets into the press.” –Monkeyboxing.com 

Rating=9.0 Hip Hop Single Of The Month “…If you’ve not got ‘Code Switchin” yet consider it an essential part of your exit-pass from 2017. Superb.” –DJ MAG October 2017
