First: Take two songs. Listen to the whole song. Do they have the same type of bass line? Do the breaks come at the same time? Do the chorus lines sound similar?
Second: Get the acapellas and instrumentals of two similar songs and test them to see if they sound right(harmonics).
Third: Make sure that your vocals are in sync(audibly) with the instrumentals. Then mix.

Hint-50 Cent's songs are all interchangable. The bass drums are similar. Same goes for most of Eminem's songs.

Hope this helps a little. Check the VDJ Radio schedule from time to time and when I am mixing Hip Hop, I mix like that alot.

dj maddsound - True Mash-ups are what dj-in-norway is describing as harmonic mixing. Songs in key reguardless of genre.

Check out these sites:

http://www.gohomeproductions.co.uk/

http://www.ezsite.bz/mashup/index.cfm?fa=home -- Click on Download Other Artists Music

There is one other good site but they are experiencing band width issues - mashmix.com

Also, one of our club DJs does them LIVE. If you have never listened to 2 - 3 hrs of straight mashing then you haven't heard anything, yet! For example - live mash of Eye of the Tiger and Milkshake?

Any how, check out the sites and there are links to others.

Yeah I know Cstroll. That's why I didn't use the word "mash-up". Because what DJ Cash is asking about is remixing tracks. This isn't the first time that he has asked about this before. He simply wants to know how to add acapellas to instrumentals. But thanks for clarifing that up because I don't want to confuse anyone.

My definition of "Mash-up" is a bit different. I usually try to incorporate the chorus of the original song with the acapella of the new song.

This guy has it down well and is on the radio I'm sure you've all heard the Jay Z -vs_ Linkin Park - 99 problems??

make sure your songs are at high bitrate. low bitrate could cause crappy problems.
