Some men like to get on social media and complain about how easy it is to succeed as a female DJ. It's as if having tits means you must have special powers, although the implication is actually that women don't have to be good to land gigs. Wow, fellas, listen to yourselves once in a while. We he ... More >>
We get it. You're soo popular there's no possible way you can crash every single Winter Music Conference and Miami Music Week party this year ... Even if you weren't invited to it. So you wouldn't mind if we provided you EDM junkies with a tantalizing list of WMC and MMW parties you can't attend (u ... More >>
Only 13 parties? That's sooo last year. With the passing of NYE after NYE, it becomes necessary, if you're just as addicted to bubbly and ball drops as Crossfade, to increase the number of hotel galas, megaclub blowouts, and downtown throwdowns on your personal end-of-year itinerary. It's called se ... More >>
It was just a few hours before midnight on New Year's Eve 2002, and the woman who'd DJed Madonna's wedding could not find parking. She had rejected multiple offers to play NYE parties in other cities, because she -- Tracy Young -- and her friends had decided that celebrating together on South Beach ... More >>
Forget the candy ... Halloween in Miami is all about getting drunk and laid. That's why we here at Crossfade advise against wearing ultra-creepy costumes. 'Cause almost no one (except maybe that family member whose 4Chan screename is "Uncle Fester") wants to have sex with a dead nun or killer clow ... More >>

One writer suggesting that, "we should totally get Madonna on ... More >>

We here at Crossfade are the highest authority on how to spend New Year's in Miami. And we say: "This is no time for moderation!" Go live out the dying days of 2011 in a ... More >>
A decade ago, Tracy Young broke out in a big way when she mixed songs for the Queen of Pop herself, Madonna. At the time, we were all psyched here in Miami since Young was a resident of our beat-heavy city. Young no longer lives in South Florida, but she visits often. And she'll be here on Janua ... More >>

Boys NoizeNow that Ultra's lineup has finally been unveiled, it's time to move on the what the local clubs will be putting on. There are certain things we are concerned about for this year's Winter Music Conference: Are there going to be enough people in town this year to support all the events that ... More >>
There's something a little Sheila E about Tracy Young. Her steadfast, stoic presence when she's doing her DJ thing reminds you of Prince's bongo-smacking concubine in her Arsenio Hall Show heyday. For both women, that temple-of-steel impenetrability is/was their greatest weapon in a male-dominated w ... More >>
