Eklo welcome talented young producer Robin Ordell to the family with three deep cuts of jazzy, modern house, featuring a stunning remix at the hands of Frenchman Ben Verden.


Title track ‘For Fucking Years’ is beautifully deep and dubby in texture with a pumping bass injecting energy and drive, smoothed throughout with faultless synth patterns. Next up ‘Monopolar’ moves with an infectious punching bassline and raw edge. Subtle vocals and sporadic piano riffs are found in all the right places with constant small changes and sound effects making this really stand out.


Over on the B-side, Ben Vedren takes the reins to deliver a sterling remix of ‘For Fucking Years’ adopting a more minimal yet musical approach with new percussive passages. Spending years behind the scenes as an engineer, Ben has moved into the limelight to introduce his own personal projects with remixes on Planet E and Silver Network plus a debut EP on Minibar.


Ordell closes the EP with his third original track ‘Please Police’, deep and powerful with prominent hi-hats, beautiful piano riffs and warm synth stabs, with crisp and fizzing undertones – the perfect addition to round off the EP and the next quality release on Eklo.


Originally from France, Robin Ordell now resides in London where he holds a highly reputable residency at one of London’s most notorious underground parties, Half Baked. Since his move to London in 2007, Ordell has graced the decks of the cities leading clubs and parties including fabric TBar and Kubicle. Making the progression into production the young artist proved his natural talent with releases on Leftroom, Serialism Records and Safari Numerique. This next venture on Seuil’s Eklo imprint is no exception in showcasing Ordell’s undeniable talent and a perfect addition to the Eklo catalogue.
