Phase Fatale is set to officially debut on Ostgut Ton, Berghain’s in-house record label, with his ‘Reverse Fall’ EP, set for release 13th July.
The new EP, which sees Phase Fatale taking a slightly more techno-centric direction, is inspired by the controversial 1973 novel Crash by J. G. Ballard, which features a main character who fetishizes car crashes.
A resident at Berghain, Phase Fatale has been part of the Ostgut Ton extended family. Last year, he released his ‘Anubis’ 12-inch on the label’s offshoot imprint Unterton.
This past February, Phase Fatale launched his own BITE imprint, with partner Florian Engerling, which focuses on “artists who operate beyond the borders of the common preconceptions of techno,” according to a press release. The label’s debut release, out this past March, was a collaborative EP between Phase Fatale and Los Angeles producer Silent Servant.
