In 1987, RUBI was passionate about dancing; it was around this era she became acquainted with House Music, and started collecting vinyl. In 2004, RUBI invested in DJ equipment and continued her vinyl collection from well known vinyl stores such as Dance Tracks, Vinyl Mania, Satellite Records, A1 Records, and Halcyon.
In 2005, RUBI met Peter Reyes (Havana Soul), and DJ EBAR (Grass is Greener) who took notice of RUBI’s unique sound, and offered her opportunities to play at their events in NYC. As time went on, RUBI started venturing off, and held down three residencies at Expo Art Gallery (Jan Larson), Belmont Lounge, and Sapphire Lounge.
RUBI enjoys going out of bounds in selecting unique sounds to share with like-minded music lovers. Her signature sound is DEEP, whether she is playing House, Techno, Tech, Electronic, Minimal, New Disco, Soulful, Afro, and House Classics. She also enjoys playing Funk, Disco, 80's, 90's, and Old School Hip-Hop.
RUBI successfully played at popular dance events such as, FUNK BOX, NYC (Tony Touch & Voodoo Ray), SOULGASM, NYC (Redness & Ejoe Wilson), I’ll HOUSE YOU (Oscar P./Open Bar Music), BOUNCE (SOUP, NYC), YOTEL (Sleepy & Boo), and THE NEXT LEVEL & RELEASE NYC (DJ Disciple).
In 2006-2009, RUBI had a residency on Pre-Party Radio every Saturday. In 2009-2011, RUBI ventured off to join SSRadio UK (DEEP & SOULFUL) every other Monday. RUBI has been featured on other Internet radio shows such as Frisky Radio, Face the Bass, and Chill Lover Radio to name few through out her DJ career.
In Sept. 2010- Jul. 2012, RUBI returned to Sapphire Lounge with her event formally known as RENDEZVOUS, NYC. The party did well, and her collage of local DJs all played at RENDEZVOUS, NYC meets FUNK BOX, NYC in April of 2012.
In April 2014-Aug. 2014, RUBI held another residency at her events such as THE DEEP LEVEL, LEVELS, and RESONANCE at THE SPOT KARAOKE. RUBI also had the pleasure in playing at NOVATEL HOTEL (NYC); from Sept.-Dec. 2014.
