Aphrodite (born Gavin King [1]) also known as A Zone or DJ Aphro, is a UK jungle and drum and bass DJ/producer who works along with Micky Finn on their joint Urban Takeover label, along with Mixman. One of the oldest drum and bass producers, he 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 featured in the video games Rollcage and SSX Tricky, and "Wobble" in SSX3.
