Phase Fatale is the Berlin-based techno project of Hayden Payne, with residencies at Berghain and Khidi.

Having released his debut album on Hospital Productions (Redeemer, 2017) and 12″s on labels such as Jealous God, Ostgut Ton and its sub label unterton, Phase Fatale has since settled into residencies at both Berghain in Berlin as well as Khidi in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi. In 2018 Payne launched his own label BITE.

Phase Fatale’s sharpened rhythmic contours in the context of his DJ sets draw on a vast repertoire of new and classic references: dark ambient drones contrast with the raw, punchy dynamics of industrial and post-punk, cold wave aesthetics combine with 4/4 functionality – all stitched together meticulously with strong atmospheric sensibilities, careful and precise mixing.
