May 2012 —
One thousand party-goers got their dance on Tel Aviv-style when Maya Jakobson, a top mashup DJ and party producer on Tel Aviv’s LGBT party scene, DJ’ed a mashup party in SF.
Maya is one of the owners of a Tel Aviv based mashup party line called A.D.D. She has also produced some mashups of her own, including this mashup hit. A mashup is a song or composition created by blending two or more pre-recorded songs, usually by overlaying the vocal track of one song seamlessly over the instrumental track of another.
This high-tech woman by day turns into a DJ-producer and mash-up pro by night. Maya is the feminine side of “A.D.D Music”, a group which brought mashup music to Israel. This year Maya was invited to the international mashup line Bootie in Berlin and got great reviews from the international mashup community.
