Details Release Date: Oct 01, 2002; Lead Performance: Cassius

French house duo Cassius stack their compositions with sounds you don't typically hear on the dance floor -- gospel harmonies, a ringing phone, an exuberant Ghostface Killah rap. Au Reve, their excellent follow-up to 1999's ''1999,'' shows them to be among the least parochial and most proficient of their discofied Gallic peers. House may be home for Cassius; thankfully, though, they never stay in for very long.
