Philip Steir

Philip Steir is an accomplished musician, remixer, composer and music producer. He co-founded and played drums in the critically acclaimed band Consolidated, 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.

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, Smashmouth, Bush, Live, Cake and others. But it was his remix of Steppenwolf's "Magic Carpet Ride", for the movie "Go," that 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 Skechers for major TV ad campaigns, films, and various television shows.

Philip’s reputation as a remixer eventually led to production work. He produced the Grammy nominated album “Arepa 3000” for the Venezuelan band, Los Amigos Invisibles. He produced the majority of tracks on the debut album "Falling Uphill" for Lillix, which became an international success. He also produced the hit song “What I Like About You” for the TV show of the same name, eventually joining the show as composer, music producer and music supervisor for its final three seasons.

In addition to his remix and production work, Philip was the music producer and music supervisor for The WB TV Network's image campaigns, producing the theme music for five seasons of the network’s image campaign. For his work, Philip and The WB won four Promax awards for best Network promo.

Philip developed a project for Warner Brothers Records to remix past hit songs from the Warner Bros tape vaults / back catalog. The album, “What Is Hip?”, released on Warner Bros Records and whose title track was nominated for a Grammy features remixes of classic songs by America, Doobie Brothers, Rod Stewart, George Benson, Ambrosia and Tower of Power. The album includes remixes by Philip as well as by other top producers and DJ’s. Conceived and executive-produced by Philip, his remix of the Devo classic “Whip It” and Todd Rundgren’s “Hello It’s Me,” have been receiving license sync’s from film, TV and ad campaigns. Philip’s remix of Seals & Crofts’ classic hit song “Summer Breeze” was prominently featured in a summer ad campaign for Gap and was a come back hit on AC radio.

In 2006, the Los Angeles ad agency Chiat Day recruited Philip as a music supervisor and researcher. Overseeing their Apple computer account, Philip designed TV spots for Apple's iPod. He went on to produce the branding image campaign for Lifetime Network's 2009 television season. As their music supervisor, producer, remixer and composer, Philip completed more than 100 television spots that made up the network's on-air promos, as well as their advertising on other networks.

In 2012, Philip signed an exclusive deal with Spirit Music Group to remix the classic back catalogue of Pete Townshend and The Who for licensing in film, television, advertising and new media. Through his selection of songs and style of remixes, Philip helped to further build The Who brand.
