No Cliché Feat. A Brother Is…

“…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

BAYTRIFIED/ DJEDET

“…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 

DJ MAG ((((FACTS))))) REVIEW 8.5

‘Facts ‘ Def Pressé  8.5

Madison Washington’s ‘Code Switchin’ EP was one of 2017’s highlights, so it’s dead gratifying to hear them dropping totally new material already. ‘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. Malik Ameer spits with a ragged anger and rage that’s utterly compelling — an essential tail-end farewell to another fantastic year in hip-hop. Diggit.
