the extended mixes single of phase fatale s debut full-length album on hospital productions takes three of the most dancefloor-ready songs from redeemer into abstracted, surreal and uncharted territory aimed for unlit, claustrophobic chambers. aided by silent servant with additional production, together hayden payne and juan mendez transform -order of severity,- -operate within,- and -spoken ashes- further down the machine. with more percussion and editing, they tear apart and lengthen the tracks through temporal space. the redeemer (extended mixes) 12- will be released simultaneously alongside the full-length album, adding yet another dimension into payne s own universe of the degenerated present.
phase fatale creates techno from disparate subcultures of dead industrial with a post-punk spirit, bringing back an immediacy and aggressive energy sorely missing in the contemporary electronic landscape.
with “redeemer,” the debut full length from phase fatale, conceived by dj and producer hayden payne in new york by way of berlin, deepens his exploration of the tension—both sonic and conceptual—begun on his eps released over the last three years on the jealous god and unterton labels. in intent and impact, phase fatale bears allegiance to the surreal influence of juan mendez aka silent servant, with whom payne has worked closely in collaboration.

body function and vatican shadow have combined forces on > games have rules< for hospital productions, simultaneously stripping back each producers more prevalent production elements - the dancefloor-focused techno structures of function, the experimental cassette-roots of vatican shadow - to create an album of dynamic electronic ambient music, equal parts rhythmic and atmospheric.
ron morelli returns to stare down the ‘floor with four pieces written during the stress-busting sessions for ‘spit’. the muggy, droning welt of ‘public consumption’ kicks off with the sound of new york techno shot from the hip, while ‘another hit’ vents a vintage era-regis style built on skull-chipping snares and effluent acid modulation. the album’s writhing batacuda banger, ‘crack microbes’ reappears here as an extra-ferric extended version, sustaining the hypnotic intensity for nine minutes of panic attack acid and febrile cowbells, while ‘’rushing again’ escorts us to a close with triplet techno shook down by railgun snares and a grotty synthline.
o long awaited debut album from mike connelly and his wife, tara, recording together as clay rendering. o additional production by dominick fernow, additional vocals by becka diamond o mastered by paul corley o a delicate yet uncompromising set of songs drifting somewhere between gothic, ambient, black metal and dream pop.
