Phtalo is Heidi Mortenson’s non-binary moniker.
She started DJing as a 20 year old living in Barcelona and worked at the night club Moog. During the day, she plowed through vinyls at the local record stores. She mostly played for fun at small clubs, events, bars and also had a steady weekly at Cityhall where she played Electro. Then had a couple of trips to Berlin where she played Tresor and Berghain.
When she moved to Berlin, she founded her own imprint Wired Records and released her debut album Wired Stuff in 2005. She was focusing on producing her own music, while playing Live all over Europe. So she DJed only once in a while, and mostly at queer events in Berlin. For many years her DJ hat has been lying on the shelf, and just recently, back in January 2022, when starting her podcast My House In Your Haus, the fun joy of making playlists and mixing tracks, prompted her DJ hat off the shelf. Every month she upload a mix echoing the new episode of my podcast. Spor Festival in Aarhus was the first to book her DJ set and she is looking forwards to share music with more audiences. Be it a dance party or a listening party.
