What do you need to make a Mashup?

One of the more popular questions we get here at MashupCiti, other than requests to mash two songs for a wedding, is this, “What do I need to make a mashup?” Well quit simply you need an idea. Like all of us, we hear one song and may make a connection with another. Probably due to the constant sampling or the very popular (for now) re-envisioning of 80’s and 90’s tracks. Did I imagine Flo-Rida re-purposing a Dead or Alive track. So let’s say you have an idea, song A and song B. The next step is to start working that into reality.

Revy started MashupCiti in 2007 out of pure greed and laziness in an attempt to acquire as many mashups as possible. Lover of all things bizarre and silly, Revy may be a genius or just a regular guy. It's sometimes hard to tell.
