Brand new single released on 7”/ Digital Download through Ed Banger / Because on February 28 with remixes from Skream, Bowski and more

The epic piano chords which introduce brand new single ‘I <3 U So’ announce the long awaited return of Cassius. The pioneering French house duo of Philippe Zdar and Boom Bass release ‘I <3 U So’ on Ed Banger Records / Because on February 28th. The aforementioned single in its original form is a giddy concoction of vocal samples and dubstep-influenced beats. The cream of the electronic crop have been enlisted to reassemble the Cassius originals, with Skream and Bowski on duty here, and L Vis 1990 & Neon Dreams and Gesaffelstein re-imagining ‘Shark Simple’ and ‘Les enfants’. Skream stamps his trademark style on ‘I <3 U So’ by laying down an incessant kick-drum and at mid-way point introducing scaling synths and casio chords which catapult the track into a space-age arena. The results take the song into the realms of rave anthem and the remix was debuted on Annie Mac’s New Year’s Eve show, since being championed in all of the most exulted dance circles. To celebrate the release of the new single and Cassius signing with Ed Banger Records an extra special iTunes application has been made available to download free. Create a music video and pay homage to ‘I <3 U So’ and its declaration of love by downloading the first interactive music video application. There has already been an enormous response, with hundreds of user created videos being uploaded to Dailymotion. http://edbangerrecords.com/cassius/newsletter/

It has been 4 years since Cassius released ’15 Again’ and in the interlude between releases the duo have certainly been keeping busy, with Zdar recently offering his production nous to the likes of The Rapture, Chromeo, Kele and 2 Door Cinema Club. He also most prominently won a Grammy for his work on Phoenix’s critically lauded ‘Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix’. The duo’s production skills could not be more sought after; Zdar is currently working with Beastie Boys and Kindness, with many other exciting and genre-splicing projects in the pipeline, including a collaboration with rap megastars later in the year…

With an album released before the end of the year there is undoubtedly no better time for Cassius to once again make a victorious return.
