RighteousFury-DataTransmission

British online magazine DataTransmission reports on many genres of dance music, reviews, features, reports of live events, and is the latest to feature the new album “Righteous Fury” by the Long Beach MC Matt Maddox, which releases on 25th February on Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music

Currently based in America’s MidWest, the rapper has a long history reaching to the international hip hop community, first represented by his Guerilla War Tactix crew which included members from Sweden & Germany, then from tours to the UK and Europe. There is needless to say international representation on the album including production from Danish beatsmith Sicknature from Germany’s Snowgoons and the UK’s Edd Bundy, as well as quality turntablism from DJ TMB.

With the traditional sound of hip hop still having an impact around the world, it’s little surprise global media have picked up on this release, and you can read the latest verdict, with a release rating of 8/10, HERE
