Tracy's path to becoming one of the first successful female DJs in the industry began in her hometown of Washington, DC while attending the University of Maryland. Her developing sound, at the time a unique style of mixing Hip-Hop, Funk and Old School launched her as one of the hottest DJs in DC, and landed her a mix-show on the Donnie Simpson Morning Show. In 1998, she relocated to Miami to work with Interscope Records and explore the booming music scene in South Beach.

Her musical tastes and styles continued to evolve but her career turned the corner when she met club impresario Ingrid Casares and landed a residency at legendary South Beach club Liquid. Through respect, mutual admiration and a lasting friendship, Tracy and Ingrid developed a working relationship that allowed Tracy to deliver the beat and bring the house down for events.

One such event, a millennium party attended by Madonna, would prove quite fateful. Madonna was so impressed with Tracy that she utilized her talents by asked Tracy to spin at her movie premiere for "The Next Best Thing" in New York, her CD release party for "Music" in LA, and bestowed upon Tracy the honor of playing for her and Guy Ritchie's wedding reception in Scotland.

Exposure to the pop idol enabled Tracy to get a shot at her first high profile remix-the first single off Madonna's album of the same name "Music." The track was an amazing success. She immediately followed that achievement with three more remixes for Madonna, including the "Greatest Hits Volume 2 Megamix." With her artistic career in full swing, Tracy began to develop her true passion of remixing and producing music.

In 2002 Tracy was approached by Kunduru Music to create an entire album of remixes of 'chill-out' tracks from their "Living Theater" collection- Vols. 1&2. This venture rendered the eclectic and unique "Tracy Young Remixes Living Theater." Released in the Spring of 2003, the album is an excellent example of Tracy's talents as a re-mixer and producer and showcases her diverse, global influences.

In the Fall of 2003 Tracy released her fifth compilation album- "White Party 2003, Flash Back- Fast Forward"- the debut launch from her very own label Ferosh Records. This release follows 2001's progressive trance compilation "Inside My Head", "Winter Party 2001", "Circuit Party 7" and "White Party 2002" CDs. Highlights from this latest fresh and varied mix include Young's original productions- "Ferosh" featuring Alan T. and "Believe in We" featuring underground diva Ceevox.
