Cedric Gervais (born Cédric DePasquale; 7 June 1979) is a French DJ, producer of house music and actor living in Miami Beach, Florida. In 2013, he produced a remix of Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness", for which he won a Grammy Award.

Gervais was born in Marseille. He was a resident DJ at Paris' Le Queen Club. In 1998, he moved to South Beach in Miami Beach. He was 19 years old when he left for Miami, and gained residencies at Crobar (now Cameo) and Nikki Beach, before taking over as DJ at the Club Space Terrace. His first single, "Burning", was released with Ultra Records through their sublabel You. In 2006, his debut album The Experiment, featured the single "Spirit in My Life", also on Ultra Records. His production credits include working with Lenny Kravitz, Deep Dish, Steve Lawler, and Rachel Star.

His single "Mauri’s Dream", from 2009, was Pete Tong’s Essential Tune of the Week three weeks in a row. In 2011, Gervais released his second album, titled Miamication.

Gervais also has had two record labels of his own, Sleaze (for digital releases) and Sleaze Industries (for physical releases). He operated the labels during the 2000s releasing progressive and tribal house music.

In April 2012 Gervais released the single "Molly", which was accompanied by a very racy music video. The single was another Pete Tong Essential Tune of the Week and was the highest new dance entry in the official UK charts reaching no. 26, whilst the video racked up over 2.5 million views on YouTube. "Molly" reached no. 1 in the Buzz and Cool Cuts charts, and was day time play listed on Radio One and Sirius. The track also caused controversy between Madonna and Deadmau5, when Madonna made comments about the track while on stage at Ultra music festival in Miami.

In 2013 he produced a number of remixes: Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness", Willy Moon's "Yeah Yeah", Katy Perry's "Wide Awake" and Borgore's "Decisions".
