BREAKING: RIP Philippe Zdar of French Duo Cassius

The dance music world has lost an important heartbeat, as it has been reported that 52 year old Philippe Zdar of French band/duo Cassius has died after an accidental fall from a Parisian building.

As one half of Cassius with Hubert Blanc-Francard aka Boom Bass, the duo reached dance-floors world wide when they formed in the late 90's with their French House sounds, which also, formed  a movement with influential French groups like AIR and Stardust/DaftPunk.

While creating their own sound, Cassius also produced for a slew of ItsNotYouItsMe favorite artist such as Phoenix, Franz Ferdinand, The Rapture, Cut Copy and The Beastie Boys. Their 2016 album Ibifornia was a feature album here at headquarters and the duo was tentatively set to release a new album entitled Dreems this coming Friday (6/21).

As this story is just breaking there is no word if the release of the final album will continue.

Farewell Philippe Cerboneschi your music will live on.
