Album release | CLBRKS & Vagrant Real Estate – The Iceberg Theory

9 September 2022 All day

The Iceberg Theory is the new collaborative project from Blah Records’ CLBRKS and Scottish producer Vagrant Real Estate, pairing distinctive flow and vivid imagery with lush soul samples and icy, gothic textures.

Crafted remotely through the last year between London and Aberdeen. The project spans seven tracks where CLBRKS weaves stark confession with booze-soaked braggadocio. Following the concept of American writer Ernest Hemingway’s Iceberg Theory, he drops allusions to surface elements and allows the listener to interpret as he oscillates between cashmere vests, Greek mythology and The Chappelle Show. Always leaving his underlying themes unspoken. 

The project features appearances from UK Hip Hop heavyweight Ramson Badbonez and rising London-based stars Renelle 893 and Kish! as well as Scottish MC Jackill, highlighting the cross-country collaboration of the album. Building on the wealth of references in the lyrics, renowned British visual artist & illustrator Emily Catherine (Your Old Droog, Mach Hommy) provided the painted artwork. She paired CLBRKS’ varied allusions with nods to Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights and The Ambassadors by Holbein.

About the artists

CLBRKS has carved out his lane through the crowd of UK Hip Hop with his distinctive tone and wordplay, in part alchemized through his early days which saw him relocate from the UK to Tanzania at the age of 3, before returning to the UK shores in 2013. His ability to stand out on even the most crowded posse cut has seen him rapidly rise through the UK scene, and recently join the ranks of esteemed British rap label Blah. His voracious work ethic has produced an impressive back catalogue and his collaborations with fellow Blah artist Morriarchi have seen international acclaim and featured with the likes of Lee Scott and Black Josh.

Vagrant Real Estate is fast becoming one of the most sought-after producers in Scotland. He draws from a number of disparate inspirations to craft his soulful and melodic style. Named as one of BBC Radio Scotland’s Top 25 Artists to Watch in 2021, he has also seen support from the likes of Creative Scotland, Ministry of Sound, Hypebeast, Complex and DJ Mag. He is equally at home working with Trap and Drill styles. The Iceberg Theory sees him return to his roots of sample style beats and his impeccable ear for a loop. Sometimes stripped back to the bare essence of the chops.

About POST

Kevin Mitchell and Chris Sansbury founded POST. This was from a desire to cut through the noise to share the great things that happen in Aberdeen. They focus on community, culture and also the interesting people of the city. The local artists, businesses and charities; photographers, musicians and entertainers. These are the people that make a positive impact on our city every day. So they use video, audio, writing and social media to amplify the voices in our community. And to ultimately give a platform to Aberdeen folk to engage and tell their own stories.

Recent work includes coverage of Spectra 2023, interviews with We Are Here Scotland founder Ica Headlam; Paralympic gold medalist, Neil Fachie; Aberdeen rapper Chef and his push for success; an article about the pedestrianisation of Union Street; coverage of Nuart Aberdeen and TEDx Aberdeen, as well as coverage of the campaign to Save the Belmont.

We are independent and entirely self funded. We just about cover our costs, but if you would like to help support our work, you could buy us a coffee.

Every one of us has the power, to plant an idea, a tree, a flower
– Angela Joss
