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 where ever 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 clubs all over the world; India, Ibiza, Mexico, Russia, Germany, Egypt, Jordan, Netherlands, Thailand, Australia, Italy, Dubai, USA & 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 2 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, and Progcast show 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.

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. 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 mostly with Paul Hamilton. All the material produced during the pandemic, including an album compilation entitled ‘Orion’, are due to be released back to back on varied labels throughout the second part of 2021.

With an impressive biography that can be nearly infinite, DJ Ruby has earned a well-deserved reputation that can be only summarised into one word; legend!
