After being exposed to the club scene in 1999, Inphinity knew it was his dream to be the one in the dj booth rocking the crowd. Instantly, he began spending countless hours learning the art of djing and working closely with production programs. Inphinity has always been told that he has an ear for dance music, so it ís no wonder his underground mix cds caught the attention of clubbers, club owners, and promoters and shortly after it turned into a 5 night a week dj career at Chicago's biggest, most respected clubs.
Inphinity has held some premier residencies and guest dj spots at every Chicago dance club. This has allowed him to open up and play along side numerous world renowned djs such as: Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Deep Dish, ATB, Axwell, Mauro Picotto, Benny Benassi, BT, Gabriel and Dresden, Darude, Robbie Rivera, Bay Boy Bill, Max Graham, Dj Irene, Tocadisco, Richard Humpty Vision, Dj Dan, Christopher Lawrence, Oscar G, Filo & Peri, Green Velvet, Jonathan Peters, Dj Skribble, DJ Rap, and many other headlining djs. His most recent resident club, Spybar, has allowed him to craft and evolve his style to what he is now known for in Chicago: Dirty House Music.

Tim Baker, a highly respected international DJ and producer emits a striking devotion to the music he produces, plays and remixes. This native Detroiter has a creative style of Djing, which fuses the funk with menacing percussion for a dramatic and emotional experience. His insight and passion for Detroit techno and house music began advancing 17 years ago in 1984 when he received his first turntables. The music which motivated his early phase of Djing included Cameo, Parliament, the B-52's, Bauhaus, Tangerine Dream, and Brian Eno. In the city of Detroit , the creative energy of the times was just beginning to manifest itself into the musical phenomena of ‘techno'.

Tim Baker's frequent visits to several Detroit underground clubs such as, the Majestic Theater and the Music Institute to hear Derrick May left a lasting musical impression on Baker. The uninhibited presence of new music fueled his eagerness to DJ. As a result, Baker acquired his first residency at the famous Nectarine Club in 1987-1988, where Jeff Mills was also a resident.

In 1990, Tim Baker graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a business degree in marketing. He started his Elephanthaus clothing line in 1993 and began manufacturing ‘club wear'. The Detroit nightlife was his inspiration for his first T-shirt designs. After much success with his Elephanthaus line, he decided to open a clothing store. Over the next six years, he continued to DJ parties while he was designing fashion.

In 1994, Tim Baker played in Europe for the first time at Berlin 's Tresor club. His Djing gigs began to accumulate, so he stopped making clothes and focused on the music. In 1997, he started Elephanthaus Records and Baker released his first EP, Black Machines . His musical career has since then evolved and taken him to the likes of the UK , Germany , France and more. He has spun at world famous clubs such as the Tresor Club in Berlin , Florida135 in Spain , The Rex Club in Paris , and he has performed at festivals around the world including The Love Parade held annually in Berlin , the Detroit Music Festival, and the Sonar Festival in Spain .

While constantly striving for a better understanding for the future of his music, Tim moved his home base from Detroit to Chicago in 1998. The move motivated Tim to launch his house label, Real Estate Records . This label combines the forward thinking future funk of Detroit with the soulful edge of Chicago . This combination brings out the purest form of house music, and has lead to the great success of their “Future House Society” series. Tim Baker has also diversified his discography with releases on Spain 's Minifunk Label, Ovum in the U.S. , BML in the U.S. , and several others. In spring 2003 the release of Tim Baker's first single on Nova Mute entitled “Addicted”.

For the 21st century, Tim Baker will continue to uphold the repertoire of his labels by discovering innovative and creative talent. Tim extends his music capacity to new territories acquainting the world with his unique sound and vision. Tim's undeniable propelling force is to provide World Class DJ performances, incredible production and quality entertainment for the masses.
