Currently based in Berlin, the output of Frenchman and Half Baked resident Robin Ordell takes influence from three key European cities: Nice, London and Germany’s capital city. Growing up around funk music during his formative years in Nice, Robin left home early relocating to East London in 2007 where he was drawn to the burgeoning underground club scene. Influenced by the French style of the nineties, while also drawing on inspiration from deeper German minimal sounds Robin was entrenched in the fertile East London scene during this exciting era of London’s history.
As a keen studio hound Robin is always jamming and making music, some of which has been released via labels such as Seuil’s Eklo, Discobar, Finest Hour and Half Baked’s own record label. In 2014, he became part of the Lola ED agency, joining an array of underground luminaries and marking an important step forward in his decade-long career. In 2017, he continues to travel around Europe, with a steady flow of releases and a constant desire to channel the soul of jazz, house and funk music through his Ordell-shaped filter.
