Berlin’s Current Value (Tim Eliot) represents the forefront of the underground DnB scene, and is a rapidly emerging force in the harder, more techy end of the Dubstep spectrum. His forward thinking production combined with a highly technical approach to music and lean, tight arrangement, makes for some of the most instantly recognisable music currently released.
Following substantial training in classical piano, Tim initially began dabbling in electronic music in 1992 and slowly built a small studio at his home. After much self-tuition about production, and listening to and being inspired by Techno, he started to record his music on cassettes. By 1996, still following his passion for electronic music, Tim was Dj’ing regularly at Kiss fm as a resident, playing fresh electronic music of the time, as well as a few of his own tracks. Following a connection with Don Q records as a result of this show, seminal works on this label and Position Chrome catapulted Current Value into a position of iconic status. Shortly thereafter, he began playing live across Europe and the USA; with his unique sound catching dancefloors afire worldwide. The early Position Chrome releases like ‘Creative Robot’, ‘Skybreaker’ and ‘Bass Riot’ were very well received, with the decidedly dark and often dissonant sound of the Techstep revolution resonating with many disenfranchised junglists, as well as electronica listeners. With numerous singles and LP’s to Current Value’s name, he made an indelible impression on the DnB and Techno genres. Subsequent appearances on renowned labels such as DonQ Records (Ger), Ruff-Teck (NL), Klangkrieg (Ger), Phantom Noise (Ger), NoBreaks (Ger) and Soothsayer Recordings further solidified his status.
