Biography

From Wikipedia:

As a drummer, he played in the critically acclaimed band Consolidated he co-founded, which was signed to Nettwerk Records and later London Records. Consolidated released five albums between 1990-1996. Philip co-wrote all of the band’s material, as well as doing much of the producing of the bands studio work.

After the success of Philip’s first remix for Consolidated, “This Is Fascism”, which went to #1 on the U.S. dance charts, he started receiving phone calls from record labels to remix other artists on their roster. In 1996 he opened his own studio in San Francisco (Toast), where he remixed tracks for numerous top artists including No Doubt, New Order, Korn, Moby, Rob Zombie, Foreigner, Smash Mouth, Bush, Live, Cake and others.

Philip’s remix of Steppenwolf’s “Magic Carpet Ride”, for the movie Go, set the ball in motion for many classic tracks to be remixed for movies, clubs and TV commercials. His “Magic Carpet Ride” remix was licensed by Dodge and then Skechers for both of the companies major TV ad campaigns. It was also eventually used in other films and TV shows as well.

Philip’s reputation as a remixer eventually led to production work. He produced the Grammy-nominated album Arepa 3000 (best alternative Latin album) in 2001, for the Venezuelan band, Los Amigos Invisibles. The album was also nominated for a Latin Grammy Award (best rock album).
