Aphrodites good stuff is as bad as his worse. Some of his tracks are just fuckin awesome, original shit. Most of his newer stuff, however, is very formulamatic (word?) and, to me, just isn't as good as his other stuff! This is due to the fact that he stopped sampling and started making "all original" music. I say fuck that, go back to ripping off beats and making good music!

another extremely well-know UK dj/producer. Aphrodite's releases can vary from atmospheric to straight-up jungle. his remixes are usually top-notch.
