Tracy Young wins her first Grammy with “I Rise”
Congratulations to DJ Tracy Young on becoming the first woman to win a Grammy in the best remixed recording, non classical category for her version of Madonna’s empowerment anthem I Rise.
A first time Grammy nominee, the Miami-based producer who’s worked with Madonna as a remixer and DJ since the late ’90s told Billboard Dance:
I’ve seen more and more female engineers in the studio, and I think moving forward, we will continue to be recognized. This field was and still is mostly dominated by men. But it is changing. I’ve definitely seen more women DJs, and hopefully, more women will come forward and start producing. I have hope.
