    Cassius, a new addition to the top ranks of French electronica circa 1999, actually comprised 2 of the scene's most experienced producers : Philippe "Zdar" Cerboneschi & Hubert Blanc-Francard aka Boom Bass. Besides their productions for Mo' Wax as La Funk Mob, the duo had also manned the boards for several excellent LPs by French rapper MC Solaar. They first met back in the late 80's, working in the same studio : Zdar was an engineer & Boom Bass was just learning the trade. Boom Bass worked with MC Solaar, & combined with Zdar to release two EPs on Mo' Wax as La Funk Mob during 1994. Zdar also teamed with Étienne De Crécy, from the Super Discount project, to release an LP as Motorbass. Finally, Philippe Zdar & Boom Bass came together in late 1998 as Cassius. Combining the jazzy hip-hop of Boom Bass with Zdar's phase'n'filter acid-disco, Cassius debuted with the single "Cassius 1999", a club anthem & British Top 20 hit late in 1998. The full-length album 1999 appeared early the following year.
    Their second opus, Au Rêve, was released in 2002 with vocals from Jocelyn Brown on the single "I'm A Woman", Steve Edwards on "The Sound Of Violence" & Ghostface Killah on "Thrilla".
    In 2006, Cassius released 15 Again, a conceptual album with tracks inspired by what they use to listen when they were teenagers. The collaborators included Étienne De Crécy, Mathieu Chedid & Le Knight Club.
