DJ Ruby on the Virtual Sessions presented by The DJ Sessions 8/10/22
About DJ Ruby –
DJ Ruby is the most prolific underground dance music artist that loomed from the party island of Malta, amassing a huge fan base that follows him unconditionally, as well as an established name throughout the global dance music industry, mainly in the progressive scene.
Renowned for delivering flawless journey sets and a positive party vibe wherever he performs, DJ Ruby is considered a true pioneer of his caliber, a hard-working and modest person that has always matured with the scene. He now boasts nearly 30 years of experience, which has obtained him countless achievements and acclaim which are impossible to mention all in a few lines.
DJ Ruby is responsible for being a major force in starting and shaping Malta’s elite dance music scene into what it is today. For many years, he hosted countless events under the Pure Promotions imprint, setting trends for various clubbing concepts on the island, and introducing multiple generations to electronic dance music.
An active career that started in the early 90’s, and still going strong to date, saw DJ Ruby being featured at Malta’s most notable dance events, opening for many of the world’s legendary names such as Faithless, The Prodigy, Sasha, John Digweed, Carl Cox, Paul Oakenfold, Hernan Cattaneo, Sven Vath, Nick Warren, Steve Lawler, and Dave Seaman, as well as holding residencies at a vast array of influential institutions in the country, including a billing at all Renaissance parties in Malta throughout the 2000’s decade.
Over the years, DJ Ruby’s diary has formed to be more like an atlas, performing regularly in venues all over the world; India, Ibiza, Mexico, Russia, Germany, Egypt, Jordan, Netherlands, Thailand, Australia, Italy, Dubai, USA, UK & Hong Kong, just to name a very few. He was also included in the line-ups of notorious festivals such as Timewarp, Ozora, Transmission, Berlin’s Love Parade, Creamfields Malta, and Tomorrowland Unite.
As a music producer, DJ Ruby holds a vast discography of his own productions, remixes and 3 albums. Many of his tracks were supported by the planet’s leading DJs, and also made it into the charts of multiple digital outlets such as Beatport and Traxsource.
After a very long and successful time working in the local scene, in 2018 DJ Ruby went through a complete rebranding and preparation to break into the international scene. In just a few months he managed to make a name for himself, founding a firm place in the global progressive house stage, gaining worldwide recognition. His regular live video sets, streams, guest mixes, Progcast and the Prog On mix series for Proton are hugely followed online. All his sets tend to go viral instantly, making him a very influential body in the scene, receiving constant good feedback from clubbers, blogs, and artists. As a promoter, in recent years he managed to make the progressive house scene bloom again in Malta. This is mostly thanks to his yearly warehouse event project partnership with Guy J, the Secret Series concept, Open to Close shows, and the regular Ruby & Friends parties which already featured respected players such as Cid Inc, Stereo Underground, Jeremy Olander, Miss Monique, Subandrio, Golan Zocher & Emi Galvan.
With a very busy schedule consisting of running events, producing mixes, video sets, touring, and performing non-stop, finding time to do his own music was always very difficult. This changed during Covid-19 days. With no events happening, DJ Ruby spent these months on the studio’s hot seat, producing his own tracks, doing collaborations, and taking on remix work. All the tracks produced during the pandemic are now currently being released back to back on various labels. A great milestone in 2021, was topping multiple Beatport charts with the album compilation ‘Constellations: Orion’ for SLC-6 music.
With an impressive biography that can be nearly infinite, DJ Ruby has earned a well-deserved reputation that can be only summarized into one word; legend!!
