    Just wondering what you all thought of him recently... Not really feeling his style all his tunes sound a bit flat. Like deadly valley and that stupid columbian tune.

    Wobble wobble.

    His new stuff I mostly don't really like as too formulaic but I do like his sets and the general positive vibe his music has. Whiskeystep is what I call his music jokingly. Good for getting drunk, dancing and chatting up girls. He was the king of jump up, now he's the godfather.

    He has gone seriously downhill, but I tend to play Wobble still... Some of his newer tunes weren't too bad, e.g. metal man which hasn't got the trademark aphrodite sound so much. I think its that airy 10 year old bass that lets him down with his new stuff...

    I pretty much agree with you lot. Not too keen on his newer tracks but I've seen him DJ once and he was well worth going out to see. The man's still a legend though for all the classics he's giving us over the years :slayer:

    New album out soon.

    The telling thing is that its being released first in the US and the release tour mainly takes place there.

    Perhaps Aphrodite is the king of hipstep...?

    I have to note that the man seems to be a serious fan of coke.

    Look at all his tracks with coke references:

    Cocaine
    The Valley
    Pure Columbian
    Spice
    Scarface

    Oh and I've seen cokeheads cream themselves to the Stevie tribute "Can't Stop".
