EDM All Day

Collaborators and fans of Cassius react to news of Philippe Zdar's death

Just days before Cassius‘ impending album, Dreems’ release, one half of the French house duo, Philippe “Zdar” Cerboneschi suffered a deadly fall from a Parisian high-rise. An innovative and catalytic force in the French, acid, and nu-disco house spheres, Zdar’s death incited a more-than-audible outcry of grief from his musical counterparts both within the electronic realm and beyond. His production work varied vigorously, including studio work for Phoenix, Beastie Boys, Hot Chip, and France’s MC Solaar, as well as Cassius originals under Ed Banger, helping mold the French Touch movement of the late 1990s and early 2000s. He was 50 years old.
