I was actually gonna post about a completely different artist, but then I saw Jay’s reference in his last to Aphrodite and couldn’t resist following up with some tunes from the man.
Gavin King, or Aphrodite as we know him, is one of the originators of the wobbly jungle sound, and if you’re a dnb fan and don’t know him…shame on you! Aphrodite provides some of those classic sounds and textures that practically define the Jungle subset of DnB, and if you wanna be really specific, Jump Up Jungle. But labels are nutting compared to tunes, and those we got for ya.
Here’s a rewind back to Aphrodite’s self-titled album, with some classic rollers from days gone by. While they do definitely sound old school, they haven’t lost their punch — turn it on, turn it up, and let it rumble!
King Of The Beats
This tune’s definitely got the edge on the sorta funk/halftime bit. Starts off slow and funky, and then kicks into high gear!
A classic of the genre…total stoner beats.
Spacier and totally psychedelic. Pretty darn cool.
This particular tune was never a single, but I’ve always loved it. That bassline just rolls on till tomorrow and don’ stop!
