Final Cassius production to be released next month

Following member Philippe Zdar’s death last June.

Influential French house duo Cassius‘ final production will be released next month following member Philippe Zdar’s death last June at age 52.

The production, a co-release between Ed Banger and Defected sister label Glitterbox Recordings, is a remix of Fiorious’ 2019 single ‘I’m Not Defeated’. Shortly after Zdar’s death, the producer shared on Twitter that the duo was not only an inspiration to him, they were “the first to champion ‘I’m Not Defeated’ and then blessed me with a superb remix out of pure love”.

Cassius’ ‘I’m Not Defeated’ remix will be released on vinyl a limited run of 2,000 copies. Profits will go to Rainbow Railroad, a Canadian charity helping LGBT people escape persecution and violence.

Last summer, Cassius released their fifth album, Dreems.

‘I’m Not Defeated (Cassius XXL Remix)’ will be released Ed Banger and Glitterbox Recordings on February 21.
