Our friend DJ Prince has wisely said: "Imagine a band playing together, and the singer sings out of tune, sounds awful, right. Same thing with mixing." Our biggest suggestion is to make your mashup harmonic.
In case you don't know about us, we created software called Mixed In Key. It is loved by many of the world's best DJs, including David Guetta, Kaskade, Markus Schulz, and many more. Mashup has the same algorithm, so you can enjoy our technology in a quick-and-easy audio editor.
Play around with Mashup -- you will find great combinations.
Here are classic mashups for inspiration and ideas:
1. Kaskade & Deadmau5 vs. Michael Woods - Move For First Aid
2. David Guetta vs. The Egg - Love Don't Let Me Go
This was one of the first mashups to make David Guetta famous. It's a combination of an electro instrumental with a David Guetta acapella from one of his songs. It's outdated now, but it popularized mashups in the DJ community.
3. Norwegian Recycling - 8 Become 1
Another classic example. It shows how you can borrow elements from different pop songs while keeping the same beat.
