His first album "Both Beings" (2009) was an awkward fantasy ride with lots of sexual references where his, then, childlike voice, given he was 14, contributed to the weirdness of the mature record. The second album "Somnambulism" (2009/10) featured a darker and more twisted vibe. Though this record disappeared and never was seen again, its song "Letters" dealt with a lover's death which traumatised its protagonist so badly that it didn't even noticed it was writing the dead lover's letters to himself. So much for the twisted vibe. In 2011, Ordep departed from his alarmingly depressing songwriting and took a step towards playful pop, "Musical At Night" was born.
Although the songs' content was all-imaginary and contained no reference to the artist's real-life adventures, it had songs like "Take Off Their Balls", an empowering pop song for women living in an abusive household and "Holy Coast", hinting at the dangers of going to the beach at night; of course all handled in a playful way: "Run, run, at the death of the night, heaven sent us fun blessing that holy coast [...] It is the place no other soul just we two member team [...] where you can spy when we are running in," the singer croons. On the verge of his 18th birthday, Ordep decides lending a bit of thought and concern to his next record. His fourth album "Eighteen" handled issues and anxieties regarding the time you come out of age and the expectations you hold for that important date. Of course, Ordep managed to keep it playful like in the title-track "Eighteen" where he sings flamboyantly in the chorus "I want more magical [...] I can't imagine myself driving a car". Here and there more serious tones emerge: "Hustler Mantra" is about poor sex-performance due to "trying to be a bitch" because the lover knows "that it's hard and the fun is a stitch" or the ninth track "Runaway Yesterday" where Ordep's devastation about not having run from home yesterday is earnestly sung.
Funny enough, the single "I'm Sorry", a colorful synth manifesto, finds Ordep seeking apology for jumping "out the window, out into the night". "I'm Sorry" became very famous around his German colleagues and friends, always being reminded of the song whenever they heard someone say "I'm Sorry" instead of the German word "Entschuldigung". Right after finishing "Eighteen", Ordep decided it was time to leave awkward innuendos behind and bring his experiences which he went through while he was 18 into his latest album "Grass". Although still in development, 15 songs have been published here on last.fm and several other broadcasting platforms like YouTube & SoundCloud. Apart from the artist's idea of it being him "supervising the pros and cons of the YOLO-era", it is Ordep's first album where all the songs' stories can be traced back to the artist's actual life.
His encounters with real love can be heard throughout the whole album and the joy and pain that it brings, "first love is such sweet despair" (an old saying) is a perfect match. Ordep also introduces himself to club tracks like "On the Bridge" and "Better Loud" where he tells someone unknown: "Make it better loud, I drank too much so my ears are drowned". One of the standout tracks is the orchestrally-tinged "Spending the Night With You" where he lengthens the phrase "I thought wrong" into a convincing Baritone opera act, but only after telling the listener that he "lied to them, saying I'm going out with friends" and ultimately confessing that he "ran to your home, don't want time wasted", only to be disappointed by his lover's father who called them for playing table soccer therefore not being able to "look into each other's eyes and search for eternity". Ordep's latest achievement "Grass" kind of tries to be a cool record about drugs (Grass obviously) because of the juvenile yolo-lifestyle, but its true strength lies in the honesty the singer transmits without a lie and its beautiful arrangement that sonically fits into each theme of each song. There's nothing wrong with trying to make a representative record of the yolo-era and how fast we throw things away which seem unimportant at first glance, but there is also nothing wrong with wearing one's heart on one's sleeve when it comes to music. *15 tracks of GRASS available on last.fm* 2.
