Hard, heavy, smashing, sharp as a blade and loaded as an Orc ready for the battle, this is what Air Shift EP sounds like. If it was an object, it would be a double-sided axe. If it was someone, it would be a fat Ninja. The techstep label Cyberfunk seems to hit a complete target with this EP, which definitely no DJ or DNB lover will let flow away without a purchase. 4 quality tracks, with clean sounds and sharp leads, that would rock every floor.
Now, to the title: why did I say that? Well, before complaining you should try. Buy a bag of groceries, place them in front of a wall of speakers, already peeled. Turn on the speakers, connect your audio device, load Air Shift EP, and let it do its job. The vibrations of the sub-woofers will make the potatoes and the tomatoes jump on the surface, while the leads will literally cross through the poor veggies, chopping them in half. And then again, and again, and again. I’m pretty sure that you could achieve a quite good chopped vegetable dish without even taking the knife out of the drawer.
What really is impressive of Current Value (Berlin based Tim Eliot in real life) is the quality of his songs, if considered how many of them he releases in one year. Tim seems not to run out of creativity even after having been rolling in the scene for many, many years. One month ago, he featured a track in Eurofunk (Approximation) and released Get down to It. Two months ago was the time of Calm the Fuck Down (feat. Rene LaVice) and of Impact, released with Invisible Recordings, and of Partition EP. 9 Months ago, he released Rocket Science EP, and in the middle many other songs. Basically, if you stumble on something along your walkway, it’s more likely an unreleased song from Tim Eliot than any other object. But hey – those are great releases! As Maztek told us some time ago, Current Value is the artist that has impressed him the most for the consistency, quality and frequency of his releasing activity. Good job man!
