DJ GUY RUBEN has always had music as his inspiration. Growing up there was always music in the house. Everything from B52's, Madonna, Lips Inc, to The Scorpions! It all started with a Fisher Price record player spinning Cyndi Lauper and the Grease soundtrack and that's taken him to being a well respected DJ in the San Francisco scene.
Beginning at the impressionable age of 8, he began searching for the hottest 12-inch records, cassingles and recording songs directly off the radio to make mixtapes in his bedroom "studio". While his collection grew, so did his vast knowledge of music. After years of careful and studious ass-shaking - and perfecting the art of mixtapes - he knew he found his calling: to be a DJ that literally moves people.
Influenced by the likes of Todd Terje, Danny Tenaglia, Riva Starr, DJ Dan, Bad Boy Bill, Treasure Fingers, Donald Glaude, DJ Dimitri from Paris, Hannah Holland, Calvin Harris, Nita Aviance, Armand Van Helden, Eli Escobar, Carl Cox, Basement Jaxx, Freemasons, LA Riots, and Green Velvet. DJ Guy Ruben evokes all their spirits and interweaves DJ sets with his signature red telephone headphone. Mixes that everyone from avid music fans, dancers, club cruisers, even casual listeners can absorb and move to.
Specializing in Electronic and House, Guy Rubenís tastes cross all boundaries. Heís been known to seamlessly infuse his sets with Nu Disco, 80's and 90's dance tracks, indie dance, World Beats, Acid House, Italo disco and Parliament-style funk.
Whether it's a party, a club or a raucous bar environment, he constantly reads the crowds to give them a beat that's fresh and edgy...and always surprising. He exudes the inspiration thatís moved him since he was a just a tiny tot dancing on the living room rug.
