One of the oldest drum and bass producers, he largely contributed to and influenced drum and bass’ current styles and techniques. He is also master of “jump-up” drum and bass, i.e. DnB that makes you want to do just that-jump up and dance.

DJ Aphrodite is behind Aphrodite Recordings which was inspired by a club he ran in 1988 called (no other than) ‘Aphrodite’. His debut album was a self titled effort under V2 Recordings released 1st September 2000. The follow up was ‘Aftershock’ which was again released under V2 Recordings on June 24th 2002 featuring artists such as Barrington Levy and Wildflower. « hide
