Biography

Berlin's Current Value (Tim Eliot) represents the forefront of the underground Drum and Bass scene, and is a rapidly emerging force in the harder, and 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 getting released.

Following substantial training in classical piano, Tim initially began dabbling in electronic music in 1992. Several years later he began receiving recognition on local Berlin radio stations and a series of irrefutably classic 12"s ensued. 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 in the USA, spreading his unique sound like the spread of an unstoppable virus. 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 4 LP's to his name, Current Value left an indelible impression on the drum & bass 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. In 2004, after 1 year of education, he received his Diploma at the School of Audio Engineering SAE - enhancing his production values and abilities even further. In mid 2005 Soothsayer released the first of several Current Value 12"s. Successive releases including a split 12" w/ Kid Kryptic (Soothsayer/Theoretic) and the monumental "The Unspoken" EP underscored the growing quality of Current Value releases. In 2006, Current Value continued to deliver ever more complex and precisely created music, with his new work for Soothsayer Recordings, Intransigent Recordings, the ultimate UK labels Obscene Recordings and Tech Itch, Counterstrikes label Algorythm and the US based Evol Intent Recordings. Current Value began to collaborate with SPL (Tech Itch, Freak, Lost Soul), Limewax (Freak, Tech Freak, Tech Itch, L/B), Counterstrike (Algorythm, Future Sickness, ...) and Raiden (Offkey, Freak, Position Chrome) and provided tunes for various of the mentioned finest drum'n'bass labels. In late 2009 he released his next full length album on Freak Recordings called "2012 - The Day Of Silence". But it was also in 2009 that he started perhaps his most established side project with Dean Rodell called "Machine Code" - working on a fusion of DnB, Tehcno and Dubstep to create the unique new hybrid sound that he is instantly recognisable for now. In early 2010 Current Value presented a further album available on Subsistenz on the 12th of April 2010 on 5x Vinyl, Double CD & MP3.

Current Value is now officially sponsored by NORD and has created a Kit and demosong for the Addictive Drums VST. Since then, he has collaborated famously with both Noisea (remixing their track 'Soul Purge') and Bjork (Creating the drums for her track 'sacrifice' from her most recent album 'Biophilia'). A series of remixes from Biophilia is also set for release in March this year, so keep your ears peeled and grab him for a booking while he's still available!
