"RUBI, a force of nature..."
RUBI enjoys going out of bounds in selecting unique eclectic sounds to share with like-minded House Music lovers. Her signature sound is DEEP, whether she is playing House, Techno, Tech House, Electronic, Acid, Soulful, Afro-Tech, and House Classics.
In the mid-eighties, RUBI grew up as a passionate dancer from Brooklyn, NYC. She grew up listening to DJ’s such as DJ Disciple, Masters at Work, Todd Terry, David Morales, to name a few. She was surrounded by close friends—Joseph Valentin (Republic Music/FSR) along with Steven Garcia, Nick Patton, and Jim Poe. It was around this era, she started a small vinyl collection just for fun.
In 2004, RUBI invested in Technics and a mixer, and continued collecting vinyl from well-known stores such as Dance Tracks, Satellite Records, A1 Records, and Halcyon to name a few. A year later, in 2005, RUBI became acquainted with Peter Reyes (Havana Soul), and EBAR (Grass is Greener) and offered her opportunities to open at their NYC events.
As time went on, RUBI ventured off, and held down residencies at Jan Larson's Expo Art Gallery, the Belmont Lounge (R-Tres Sessions), Sapphire Lounge (Rendezvous, NYC), and The Spot Lounge (The Deep Level & Resonance).
RUBI had her own radio shows on Pre-Party Radio (2007-2009), and SSRadio UK (2009-2011). She's also aired as a guest on Frisky Radio, Chill Lover Radio, Candelaria Live (ADG), and DWILD Music Radio throughout her DJ career.
