Phase Fatale is the Berlin-based techno project of Hayden Payne. Over the past four years, Payne, originally from New York, has earned a reputation as a techno innovator, both for the broad spectrum of dystopian electronics included in DJ sets as well as his deep understanding of synthesis and sound design in his own productions. Having previously released on labels such as Jealous God, Phase Fatale made his Unterton debut with last year’s Anubis EP. Since then he has settled into residencies at both Berghain in Berlin and KHIDI in Tbilisi, released his first LP on Hospital Productions and kicked off his own label BITE with a collaborative EP between himself and Silent Servant. In 2018, the Reverse Fall EP marks his first release on Berghain's in-house label Ostgut Ton.
Éclipse totale is a new residency at LÄRM. Nyxa and Yinna share their experimentation with contemporary techno, aiming to introduce interesting avant-garde electronic music artists to the Hungarian underground.
