Introduction

Aphrodite also known as A Zone or DJ Aphro, is a UK Jungle and Drum n Bass DJ/producer who works alongside Micky Finn on their joint Urban Takeover label. He's one of the oldest drum and bass producers and largely contributed to and influenced the genre's current styles and techniques.

DJ Aphrodite is behind Aphrodite Recordings which was inspired by a club he ran in 1988 called 'Aphrodite'. His debut album was a self-titled effort under V2 Recordings released September 1, 2000. The follow-up was Aftershock which was again released under V2 Recordings on June 24, 2002, featuring artists such as Barrington Levy and Wildflower.

The song "King of the Beats" was even featured in the video games Rollcage and SSX Tricky.
