French indie rockers Phoenix have spoken out and shared a tribute to late producer Philippe Zdar.
The band's statement originally appeared in a French magazine, but they translated it into English and shared it via Instagram. The message reads:
Philippe was legendary.
Of course, our music owes so much to him, he who spent hundreds and hundreds of hours lifting us up with the breath of his talent, his enthusiasm and his kindness.
But much more, he taught us that you could raise your life, Friendship, Love to the rank of major art. In all these areas he was an absolute genius.

The message follows a post last week that simply featured a black square and no caption.
Zdar, best known as one half of electronic duo Cassius, won a Grammy for producing Phoenix's 2009 album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. He also produced their albums United (2000) and Bankrupt! (2013).
He passed away last week after accidentally falling from a high floor of a building in Paris. He was in his early 50s.
