DJ Tracy Young
won't be spinning Sunday at the Grammy's or at any Grammy after-party. She's also not nominated for a Grammy as a remixer -- and one of these days she better be!
But who needs the Grammys? Young gets by with high-profile gigs for Madonna
and others, and then there's her position as one of the most popular DJs on the gay circuit
. Her sweet tribal sound
is never cloying nor desultory. It's always tasteful and tuneful and celebratory. Widely appealing too: It's hard to imagine, for example, any dancehead not grooving to one of last year's better compilations, Young's light and hard Dance Culture 2
. Tonight, Feb. 9, she returns to the Hippo
in Baltimore, which is almost like a homecoming for the Miami-based D.C. native
. Why not make it a parade and float on up I-95
for the occasion?....
