In the words that Mix Mag just put it,”Philippe Zdar is not the most well-known of the French producers who rose to prominence in the 1990s (alongside Air, Laurent Garnier and Daft Punk), he may well have been the greatest of them all.” Philippe Zdar passed away tragically due to an accidental fall and has left the music community in shock. His death also comes only one day before the release of Cassius’ latest album, “Dreems,” on June 21st.

Zdar was one half of the French touch group, Cassius, but it perhaps more well known for his work producing other artists. He produced the acclaimed Phoenix album ‘Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix’, and spent time in the studio with The Rapture, Chromeo, Franz Ferdinand and more.

He was remembered by many contemporary producers and artists, that were undoubtedly influenced by his music and life’s work.
