Some people are born modest. Some are born talented. Tim van Paradijs was born both. Known in the music scene as Invite, this 29-year old wizz from Utrecht is one of the most sought-after DJs in the Netherlands. His lack of pretense and love of music make him a force to be reckoned with. He is also the mastermind behind the Solid Grooves parties that have dominated the Utrecht techno scene for many years. Known for his varied choice of records and adeptness with the decks, Invite delivers the goods - whether performing at down-tempo parties or closing the night with his harder techno sets.

Yet Invite is not just a techno DJ. To stereotype him would diminish the impact he’s made on the techno scene, and the respect he’s earned over the years for his creativity, technical finesse and versatility in his track selection. Few DJs feel comfortable in so many areas within Techno. Invite has established a strong a reputation for pushing the boundaries both musically and geographically, having made a name for himself playing many gigs throughout Central and Eastern Europe. So far he played in countries like: Germany, Croatia, Slovenia, Czech Rep, Estonia, Austria, France, Belgium.

Much of his appeal is due to the fact that he fits well into any part of the line-up depending on what the party needs. Down-tempo? No problem. A hard set that pounds cracks in the walls? You’d better believe it. His versatility have been proven time and again by his unforgettable performances at Solid Grooves parties, where he maintains resident status.

It is this versatility combined with his technical skills that distinguish Invite from other DJs. That can be seen in his sources of inspiration: Detroit, UK/Birmingham, Dubtechno, Swedish and Japanese sounds played a significant role in the evolution of Invite's personal music style as well.

But his influences and interests don’t end there. House, Drum ‘n Bass, Hip Hop, Ambient – even 1960’s classic Rock and Roll. Theatre, modern cinema, or just a simple conversation he had today. It all adds up. Talent, hard work and enthusiasm have paid off with gigs at Awakenings, Awakenings Festival and mostly every well known club in The Netherlands. With Invite achieving status as one of the Holland’s top techno talents, and with his releases on Bush Records, Manual Music, Tik Tok Records, Flatlife records & Marmelade Music, more success is sure to come.
