Album: CLBRKS & Morriarchi – Performance Enhancing Diet

In Hip Hop by James Wijesinghe

Blah Record’s CLBRKS and Morriarchi are back with their second album of the year, Performance Enhancing Diet. The pair continue to dish out hot microwave-related content, as well as upgrading to five star gormet flavours. Those premium tastes can be sampled in tunes like ‘WINE LIST’ and ‘BONITO Pt. 2’, where sounds are cinematic and laced with throwback elements of funk. There are multiple callbacks to their acclaimed project MICROWAVE COOKING, including a part two for ‘DEFROST’ and a switch of cigarettes from ‘CAMEL BLUE’ to ‘CAMEL YELLOW’.

CL’s abstract statements are as iconic as his nasal tones. Once again he shares verses with Oregon rapper Capriisun, and Conrad Mundy manages to maintain his streak of sick appearances on Yung Supa projects. Long-time collaborator Lord Apex is a welcome showing as well as the drowsy don Bisk, who crops up twice across the album. You might recognise the tune ‘LIVESTRONG’ from CLBRKS’ ‘Blah Stylin’ video but now you can cop it on cassette.

Stream Performance Enhancing Diet on all platforms for that high grade alt-rap.
