The producer oversaw 'Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix'...

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.
