“My love and passion for music inspires me to continually find ways to grow as an artist. Building upon minimalistic techno of the 90’s as the foundation for my music, I love to experiment with different types of abstract techno, discovering new layers to the art.” - Tim van Paradijs

In 2015, Tim launched his label, Invite’s Choice Records; a concept through which he aims to spread his love for electronic music as a whole and more specifically, techno music. Besides the label, the Invite’s Choice project currently also includes a well-received podcast series and his popular Label Nights, a showcase of talented artists.

Whether you watch him perform, listen to his label’s music or browse through his podcast series, you are sure to receive a thoughtfully and meticulously crafted collection of music, lovingly curated by Tim himself. A little modesty never goes amiss, however. “It is not about me. In the end, it is all about the dance floor. If people dance, I return home a happy man.” - Tim van Paradijs
