Phoenix have posted a tribute to their friend and collaborator Philippe Zdar.
The French producer worked as one half of Cassius, while his solo endeavours included work with everyone from Cat Power to Kanye West.
Philippe Zdar oversaw work on the Phoenix album 'Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix', a record that has since come to arguably define the band.
Remaining close, Phoenix was shocked by the sudden death of their friend and colleague last week following a fall in Paris.
At the time the band's social media accounts went black, with a short, poetic tribute now being posted online.
(In english) A few words about our friend Philippe Zdar: « Philippe was legendary. Of course, our music owes so much to him, he who spent hundreds and hundreds of hours lifting us up with the breath of his talent, his enthusiasm and his kindness. But much more, he taught us that you could raise your life, Friendship, Love to the rank of major art. In all these areas he was an absolute genius. » _______________________________ #lesinrocks
