Berlin’s Current Value (Tim Eliot) represents the forefront of the underground Drum & Bass 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. Several years later he began receiving recognition from local Berlin radio stations and a series of irrefutably classic 12″s followed. Seminal works on Don Q 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.
2012 so far has brought some of the highlights of Current Value’s career, with the crowning achievement being without doubt his collaborations with Bjork. He contributed the beats to the track ‘Sacrifice’ from her most recent album ‘Biophilia’, with these beats also being included in the highly successful and award-winning Biophilia phone application. Following this collaboration, Current Value was given the first and fourth releases of a series of Biophilia remixes, alongside other electronic artists at the forefront of their genres such as Hudson Mohawke and Alvo Noto. This is in addition to releases on Subtrakt, Position Chrome and Section8. A further album is set for release on the consistently epic Barcode label.
His highly acclaimed side projects include Machine Code and Underhill. Machine Code is a collaborative project with Dean Rodell, working on a fusion of Drum & Bass, Techno and Dubstep to create forward thinking, genre-combining experimental dance music. 2011 saw the release of their first full length LP ‘Environments’ – released on Subtrakt. Tim also worked with Dean Rodell and Ivan Shopov on the Underhill project up until after the release of their first LP Silent Siren. Another genre-fusing album, Silent Siren was released to critical acclaim drawing together elements of Dubstep, Hip-Hop and Techno.
