Female DJs are still a rarity, but 25 years ago when Tracy Young first stepped into a DJ booth it was unheard of in the music industry. Her humble beginnings started in Washington, D.C. at WPGC 95.5 as a mix show DJ, spinning Hip Hop. Promotions soon led to Music Director at the station before accepting a position with Interscope Records as Promotions Director.
The new position ultimately relocated her to Miami, a city with a thriving music scene. Much of her success to come was ultimately due to other strong women in the industry, helping her along the way.
Most notably: Madonna, whom she met in the mid-’90s, who not only hired her for movie premieres and album releases, but chose her to spin at her wedding to Guy Ritchie. Madonna’s stamp of approval has led to work with other celebrities, creating remixes for P!nk, Rihanna, Demi Lovato and many more found in Young’s Discography.
Young has become a global electronic music celebrity as her demand continues to grow to an international level as both DJ and Producer, including 7 musical compilations on her own label, FEROSH Records. She has remixed for over 100 musical artists and has racked up over 50 #1 Billboard Club Hits including 13 official Madonna remixes as well as imaginative EDM reinventions of today’s music.
When Young is not touring or producing in the studio, you can find her on-air at 93.9 MIA with iHeart Radio presenting “The Saturday Night Social” from 9pm - 11pm with co-host Joey Brooks.
