Who is he? - Unless you’re a studio rat or music biz insider, you may not know Phil Tan’s name. But you’re almost certainly familiar with the three-time Grammy Award-winning audio engineer’s work on albums such as Mariah Carey’s The Emancipation of Mimi (Best Contemporary R&B Album, 2005), Ludacris‘ Release Therapy (Best Rap Album, 2006) and Rihanna‘s Only Girl (In the World) (Best Dance Recording, 2010).
Born in Malaysia, Tan has been a fixture on the Atlanta music scene for more than 20 years now, working alongside production titans such as Jermaine Dupri, Dallas Austin, Organized Noize, L.A. Reid and Babyface during the urban music boom of the ’90s. He’s either mixed or recorded 25 singles that have reached #1 on the Billboard’s Hot 100 chart (including Usher’s “Confessions Part II,” Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl,” Fergie’s “London Bridge,” Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love and Katy Perry’s “Firework”), and 27 more that have reached #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart. All told, as an engineer, mixer, producer or remixer, Tan’s work has sold over 250 million records.
