Kuldaboli returns to bbbbbb records, this time with a 6-track EP on which his idiosyncratic sound of icy, cryptic electro fully emerges. BBB015 being the second release of Kuldaboli on bbbbbb records is destined to be a historical release for the Icelandic dance music scene and a very important one for Kuldaboli's legacy. The EP title 'Ekkert nema iskaldur veruleikinn' roughly translates to 'nothing but the ice cold reality' and that is exactly what is delivered across the six tracks laden with poetic lyrics and spoken word. In the opening track 'Eg er bara eg' Kuldaboli's signature sound of uncompromising electro is overlaid with haunting vocals recited in Icelandic saying 'I am only me and you are only you, people exchange words measuring each other out, trying their best at discerning life's riddles'. It is easy to say that Kuldaboli knows how to capture the listeners with deep reflections on subjects that most people are aware of but hardly ever speak of. A2 'Iskaldur veruleikinn' or 'the ice cold reality' is the most bouncy dancefloor track of the EP with the openings lyrics saying 'Are you telling me the truth? If I were to guess you are lying cold to my face'. The power of word play in this release is by far the most interesting poetic turn for Kuldaboli to date, where he shows great insight to the subconscious and human behavior. The smooth sounds of possessed Italo disco on A3 'Finn innri frio', along with the funky bassline and trance like synths has perhaps the most positive vibe to it if you are not familiar to Kuldaboli, along with the playful opener of B-side 'Afi kenndi mer islensku'. Following B2 no-bullshit-electro-track 'Kuklari', the final track B3 'Fonix ur osku' shows the haunting dark depth of depressurisation that vocal and electronics can create, where melancholic lyrics convey images of lost dreams of former lives.
