Robert Racic (January 8, 1964 - October 25, 1996) was an Australian DJ and record producer. Born in Melbourne and highly influential within electronic and house music circles he was largely unknown outside Australia. Racic produced several top 10 "Billboard" United States dance hits including Volition Records artists Severed Heads "Greater Reward" and Boxcar's "Freemason", "Insect" and "Gas Stop". Racic had a hand in producing just about every artist on the Sydney-based Volition label including Itch-E and Scratch-E and Single Gun Theory, and in many ways defined the label's "sound".

Racic also remixed many other bands, both Australian and international including New Order, Eurogliders, A Certain Ratio and Dragon.Racic died in Sydney in 1996 of PML, a virus of the brain, while working on his first solo album under the name "MagicMan" which was released posthumously as "Blue". Itch-E and Scratch-E's track "Flowers in the Sky" was dedicated to Racic.
