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 Drum&Bass 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.
More recently Current Value’s focussed, minimal but weighty NeuroTech production has been hitting some of the largest labels in the world. Starting with his Binary EP for Critical Music. Furthering that with his incredible ‘Nitro’ EP for Black Sun Empire’s ‘Blackout NL’ label – both of which quickly became essential staples of mixes on all corners of the globe. His third release of the year, ‘Cotton Punch’ hit Noisia’s deeply well-respected ‘Invisible’ label, showcasing his dedication to an extreme pureness and depth in the quality of his sound.
With an incredible 20 years in making music and 10 albums under his belt already the veteran producer still has a lot to give as he joins alongside fellow Critical artists for a promising future with the label.
