Writer, DJ, producer.
With over a decade of bylines to his name, Philip is a critic and columnist for Pitchfork and The Wire as well as the Electronic/Dance editor of Rhapsody.com; he also appears frequently in Resident Advisor and on eMusic.com. His writing has appeared in a slew of other publications, among them the New York Times, SPIN, Slate, Frieze, XLR8R, Wired, Spain's Trax, and Germany's Groove and De:Bug, as well as books like Audio Culture: Readings in Modern Music, Time Out 1000 Songs to Change Your Life and The Pitchfork 500: Our Guide to the Greatest Songs from Punk to the Present.
Philip also moonlights as a DJ. He has played in Berlin (Panorama Bar, Maria, Club der Visionaere, Golden Gate), Barcelona (The Moog, The Loft, Lolita, Sala BeCool, Club Macarena), Hamburg, Montreal, Chicago, Austin, Seattle, Portland, New York, Bristol, Chile, and Mexico.
To round everything out, in the past few years Philip has increasingly turned his attentions towards production, returning to music-making some 15 years after his teenage experiments with synthesizers and a four-track. Connecting the dots between house, techno, home-listening electronica and dubstep, he has recorded and remixed for Lan Muzic, Musique Risquée, and Respoal Red, and his tracks have been licensed for DJ mixes by both Hot Chip and Simian Mobile Disco.
