Andrew is one of the best musicians I ever worked with. He is someone whom I believe knows what real music is supposed to sound like and has an impeccable sense of timing and what needs to happen. His work ethic in the studio and abroad is a very rare find these days and anyone who has the opportunity to work with him in either outfit is very fortunate.”

“Green Tank supplies the key ingredient hip hop has been missing in the past decade. Smooth vibes layered over boom bap beats. There have been a few times where I’ve put Green’s tracks on loop for inspiration while working on some of my art.”

– A. Garcia

“From the first beat I heard of Green Tank, I recorded the joint the next day and had it on the st. da squad album, his sound is well rounded and unique, since then me krumbsnatcha and termanology have all snatched up his work for future projects.”

“Andy Clifford is a great drummer, who accompanies jazz horn players in a sensitive and supportive manner. This is in addition to possessing a complete knowledge base in regard to hip hop music. I have a high regard for his compositions/arrangements in that medium. I am happy to see his studio doing so well.”

Ted Casher – Sax/clarinet/flute – Freelance musician in the Boston area

“There’s nobody out there like this dude. “A” is a true artist’s engineer. From the time I stepped into the studio with him to the time I left, I was comfortable. He was actually the first engineer I ever asked for, and received advice pertaining to something I was recording. He as an ear for music that I can say, “I trust.”


“Leading the new era of rap with his new era form of production, the boy AmC is a problem. A problem too big for a solution, so don’t hurt yourself trynna figure out the kid. With his unorthodox style, he’s hard hitting and even harder to measure. “


“Green Tank is one of the best producers out right now; I plan on working with him alot in the VERY near future.”

Hip-hop artist Termanology

“Green Tank Productions got hot beats 4 real. I’m definitely rockin’ wit Andrew on some beats. Dat Sound is what I need to spit fire to.”


“Yo A is So Serious when it comes down to Instrumentation. His Definition is Versatility!!!!!!”
