Philippe Zdar of Cassius dies, aged 50

One half of French production duo Cassius, Philippe Zdar, has died, aged 50.

Details surrounding his death have remained scarce so far, but according to his agent Sebastien Farran, "He made an accidental fall, through the window of a high floor of a Parisian building."
