15 facts to explain why Ed Banger Records are so happy to release CASSIUS new EP :
1 ZDAR has been part of ED REC since day ONE. On the flipside of Mr Flash "Radar Rider" there was "F.I.S.T" a hypnotic electro beat I stole from some old DATs
2 Grammys please! ZDAR received one for his work on the Phoenix album, and just wait to listen to The Rapture new album he just produced!
3 Like the 3 classic 12"s released on Mo'Wax back in the mid 90's, a couple of years before Daft Punk and the rest of the french sound. LA FUNK MOB "Tribulations extra sensorielles" even got remixed by Ritchie Hawtin and Carl Craig!
4 Ibiza is CASSIUS' second home, the boys spend most of their summer on this paradisiac island. Oh and if you wanna party, don't miss their monthly residency at Pacha!
5 They make up the 5 members of our supergroup CLUB 75: ZDAR + BOOMBASS + Dj Mehdi + Xavier † + Busy P
6 Like the number of bands they've been part of... Cassius, Motorbass, La Funk Mob, la Chatte Rouge, Abassday, L'homme qui valait 3 milliards...

10 rue Ramey in Paris, ED REC's headquarter address, and also ZDAR's neighbourhood.
11 You'll need probably 11 days to listen to all the stuff ZDAR & BOOMBASS have been involved in. They are probably some of the most active musicians I've ever met.
12 people in a gay villa in Palm Springs during Coachella 2010, CASSIUS were definitely part of the ED REC family.
