Zdar's agent Sebastien Farran said, "He made an accidental fall, through the window of a high floor of a Parisian building."

The Cassius member, born Philippe Cerboneschi, was 50 years old, and formed Cassius with Hubert Blanc-Francard, aka Boom Bass, back in 1996.

The French duo reunited last year, and their first album in three years, Dreems, is due to be released on Friday (21 June).

Over the years Cassius worked with Cat Power, Pharrell Williams, Franz Ferdinand, Robyn, and more.

Cerboneschi produced Phoenix's Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix record from 2009, and had just worked with Hot Chip on their new record A Bath Full of Ecstasy.

Musicians around the world have been paying tribute to the producer on socials.
