Phase Fatale is the techno project of Berlin-based DJ and producer Hayden Payne from New York. Originally coming from a Post-Punk / Cold Wave band background, Phase Fatale is an artistic endeavour that serves as an outlet for his own interpretation of darker and industrial-influenced techno. Brutal productions confronted by sinister atmospheres create a sound imprint that has mutated into a new electronic identity. Rigid drumming, cold synths and bleak samples - the image of future war.
Phase Fatale’s extended DJ sets rework the connections between techno, post-punk and industrial, while his live performances achieve an engrossing sound through the heavy use of machines.
Phase Fatale released two outstanding EPs last year on Jealous God, the label co-run by Regis, Silent Servant and James Ruskin. While this year so far, he has debuted with an EP on Unterton, the sublabel of Berghain’s in-house Ostgut Ton.
