RIVKA R3 NYC was born-raised in Brooklyn NYC, and grew up dancing to the beginning of the House Music era in the mid 80s by listening to DJ Disciple on 91.5FM.

In 2004, RIVKA started learning the art DJing on Technics Turntables. She enjoyed vinyl shopping every Friday at Dance Tracks and Satellite Records. Surrounded by Dancers and DJs all her life, it was inevitable for whats to come.

In 2005, she began playing out and going by her alias, RUBI R-Tres or R3 NYC. Her reputation spread by creating memorable nights at events such as "SoulGasm NYC", "FunkBox NYC" w/Tony Touch, "I'll House U" w/Oscar P, Golden Record NYC w/Joe Claussell & Vince Watson, "Dreamland NYC" w/SONI & Eli Escobar, and "Release" w/DJ Disciple. She proudly played a 3 hour opening set for Grammy Winner Hex Hector at TOCA CIELO in 2017, an event by Justin Toca. She's held down a few residencies & radio shows, and also has played along side Analog Soul, Tony Humphries, Anańe, Mr. V, Jeannie Hopper, and her founder DJ EBAR.

RIVKA's been musically inspired by Todd Terry, Larry Heard, Wayne Gardiner, Tyree Cooper, Kerri Chandler, MAW, Nick Holder, Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Mike Huckaby, Vince Watson, Kraftwerk, to name a few.

In 2020, she decided to rebrand by using her real name RIVKA and keeping her alias R3 NYC. RIVKA is now a music producer of Deep House, Detroit Techno, Acid House, Tribal House, and open to experimenting with other genres such as hip-hop and drum-n-bass.
