Who is Adi Dgani, what would you want people to know about yourself ?
I’m 31, music’s been my life since I was a baby, been making mix tapes since I was 5 (really!), and always had jobs that were connected to the music scene, been Djing for the last 3 years, specializing in pop music,I’ve always been a pure pop girl, and when I say pop I mean pure trashy dancy happy pop!!|
How would you describe your music ?
So the music I mostly play is pop music, and mostly new. I think that pop music in the last 2 years has become more intelligent yet still hasn’t lost the ‘fun’ and sweet side of it.
Who are some of the artists/DJs that have influenced your music ?
I don’t make music, I play it! I help people feel like they are the pop stars they always dreamed of being – on the dance floor.
Where is your favourite place to play ?
I don’t have a favorite place to play, I love playing anywhere and to everyone, wether it’s a 10 people gig or a 1000 people gig, you can be sure they will all be smiling
Does being Israeli influence the type of music you produce ? how so ?
Being Israeli does not influence the music I play, though I must say that the Israeli Genre that is called here “Authentic” is the most uplifting genre there is, it has no age,culture or gender – everybody loves it and will dance their asses off!
However, music has no color, gender or race.
Have you played outside of Israel ? if so, how are you received internationally ?
Haven’t played outside of Israel yet, but I can’t wait!!
Would you consider Tel Aviv to be a top party destination ?
Tel Aviv is a crazy city, I’ve been around the works and I can safely say that Tel Aviv is the best city to party at, if you think that the spanish people are LOCA, you probably haven’t been to TA!
I’ve recently read about a party that will host 14 Israeli Female DJs, what’s that about ?
There’s a party on the 14th of January, it’s a women only party and it has 14 amazing female Dj’s on it’s line-up, this party happens once a year and this year it’s the 10th anniversary, the whole idea behind the party is of course – GIRL POWER and basically to show who runs the world? GIRLS!!! The wonderful women behind this party are Anat Nir and Dana Ziv, aka Dana Ve Anat and they produce a lot of the women parties in Tel Aviv.

It would have happened sooner or later: ‘TYP’ (The Young Professionals), Ivri Lider and Johnny Goldstein’s latest collaboration, signs up a three album and worldwide distribution deal with international music company Universal Records. The contract, which was mediated by the Polydor, Universal’s European subsidiary, also includes a world tour.
The first single, ‘DISCO,’ which was originally released in Israel in 2011, is going to be the first single with Universal, released in France in February, and then in the rest of Europe and the world. Polydor Records will be responsible for the Marketing and PR of the duo. The Young Professionals is expected to make its stand between Tel Aviv and Paris over the next couple of years.
Lider and Goldstein are very excited about the deal. Lider wrote on his Facebook profile this morning “We are very excited today, thank you to all the people who are working with us. I love you and am proud to be a part of TYP.” Later on he said in the Israeli media: “I hope that this deal opens up doors to international record companies for more Israeli artists.”
Three Israeli deals made “The New York Times” list of the best deals in 2011. The paper cited 18 deals for its “Deal Professor A’s” for the best deals and deal makers of the year.
The acquisition of Cephalon by Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (Nasdaq:TEVA; TASE: TEVA). “The New York Times” says, “Teva made a quick strike to buy Cephalon for $6.8 billion after a hostile bidder, Valeant Pharmaceuticals, opened up the opportunity. Teva showed the value of opportunistic and quick action in deal-making, winning the Bruce Wasserstein “Dare to Be Great” award.”
The acquisition of Makhteshim Agan Industries Ltd. by China National Chemical Corporation (ChemChina). “ChemChina, in partnership with Koor Industries Ltd. (TASE:KOR) of Israel, buys 60% of an Israeli agricultural chemical company, Makhteshim. The deal, valued at $2.4 billion, was one of the largest outbound investments by China ever, and showed that the country was on the prowl internationally for crucial suppliers. In light of American efforts to block many Chinese deals on national security grounds, Chinese money is being directed elsewhere.
The Fundtech-GTCR merger, and the parallel merger of rival S1 Corporation (Nasdaq: SONE) with ACI Worldwide Inc (Nasdaq: ACIW). “The New York Times” says, “S1 and Fundtech had agreed to combine in a stock-for-stock merger valued at about $318 million. Each soon received its own unsolicited offer to be acquired. S1 and Fundtech terminated their deal, with S1 being acquired by ACI and Fundtech going to GTCR. The deals showed the rare ability of a bidder to top a stock-for-stock deal and not only disrupt it but end up on the winning end.”
