Best known for his uncompromising take on the traditional neuro-tech drum & bass sound, Current Value has never been afraid of pushing the boundaries with his signature hard techno and leftfield-influenced sound. While criticized for being too forward thinking in the past, the dancefloor seems to have caught up with Current Value as he’s definitely come into his own this past year with a series of monster releases on imprints like Blackout, Invisible, Bad Taste, Trendkill and Critical Music.
The pinnacle of his recent explosion of creative output is the recently unleashed 12-track Biocellulose LP that features the Berlin-based artist at the absolute top of his game. First surfacing on Critical’s Binary series last year, the relationship between Kasra’s forward-thinking imprint and Current Value’s own futuristic take on the sound seems to have found enough common ground to lay the groundwork for what has since become his tenth studio album.
From bits like “Footwork” that merge the hypnotic pummeling that Current Value is known for with a dirty rolling bassline that keeps things locked on the dancefloor, to the unbridled aggression of “Senescence” or the strychnine-laced “Thump,” the alien-infused vibe that seems to have travelled across the span of the universe hits it hard in all the right places.
With jaw-dropping collabs and remixes coming from fellow tech-warriors, Phace, Mefjus, Enei, and Anode, the entire LP is a massive gift to all the fellow space cadets out there looking to get in the groove. If you think you can hang, strap on your helmet and prepare for liftoff as this one is out now via Critical Music and all digital outlets across space and time.
