Various Artists Overdrive: A DJ Mix By Aphrodite
- Words: Tomas Palermo
- Label: Feed
When former XLR8R 12" editor and matey Ron Nachmann would slap on the latest single by UK d&b don Aphrodite a collective groan would rise up from the office (especially from my corner). I‘d grumble, "Not that cheesy guy who‘s best friends with DJ Rap and plays raves called ‘Excalibur IV: The Reckoning‘." Ron would reply with a pithy, "Don‘t hate, appreciate!" So here I am, regaling Aphrodite for assembling and mixing high-energy jungle tunes, including his collabo‘s with deceased MC Stevie Hyper-D and diva Beverly Knight. In fact, Aphrodite‘s tunes outshine the comp‘s generic snare-rolling tearouts from Benny Page, Distorted Minds, or The Force. Overdrive delivers its implied impact.
