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 recognizable music currently released.
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 dance floors afire worldwide. The 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 Soothsayer Recordings, Intransigent Recordings, Obscene Recordings, Algorythm, Barcode, Subdivision, Nekrologik Records, Tantrum Records and the US based Evol Intent Recordings.

2012 has brought some of the highlights of Current Value’s career, with the crowning achievement being without doubt his collaboration 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. His highly acclaimed side projects include “Machine Code” and “Underhill”. Machine Code is Tim Eliot working with Dean Rodell on a fusion of DnB, Techno and Dubstep to create forward thinking, genre-combining experimental dance music. Tim 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 project, Silent Siren was released to critical acclaim – drawing together elements of Dubstep, Witch-House, Hip-Hop and Techno.
