The Boom Boom Pow Sounds Better With You (Stardust vs. The Black Eyed Peas)
The Boom Boom Pow Sounds Better With You (Stardust vs. The Black Eyed Peas) by DJ Dain
I actually made this mash-up several months ago, so I've taken a big risk since this particular Black Eyed Peas' single will probably have been played to death by this point. Even so, I can't get over how these two tracks complement each other. Every "Boom Boom Boom" line seems to match perfectly with the chords from the Stardust track - not to mention the little "Gotta get that" match-up with the short guitar riffs at the end of each set of four beats.

I Won't Tell 'em 'bout the High Life (Daft Punk vs. Fat Joe Feat. J. Holiday)
I Won't Tell 'em 'bout the High Life (Daft Punk vs. Fat Joe Feat. J. Holiday) by DJ Dain
At this rate I think I'm going to end up mashing every Daft Punk song! This Fat Joe vocal seemed really fitting for this, often unappreciated, Daft Punk track. The lyrics reflect the kind of expensive lifestyle he can offer, so why not back that up with a glitzy French-House beat? Heck, with a name like "High Life" they were almost meant for each other.

Please Don't Stop the Digital Love (Daft Punk, Boris Dlugosh & Red Foxx vs. Rihanna)
Please Don't Stop the Digital Love (Daft Punk, Boris Dlugosh & Red Foxx vs. Rihanna) by DJ Dain
This was originally a mash-up of a bunch of different remixes/reedits of Daft Punk's "Digital Love." I had been meaning to use Rihanna's vocals again at some point, and I was really impressed with how well they complemented the chord structure on the Daft Punk track. Red Foxx's Bmore element really brings out a whole new dimension of the song for me, and Boris Dlugosh's extended intro and outtro really make this a DJ friendly song.

Maneating American Soviets (CCCP vs. Nelly Furtado)
Maneating American Soviets (CCCP vs. Nelly Furtado) by DJ Dain
Nelly Furtado gets a decidedly communist 80's electro-pop make-over! When I think about it, the mash-up title almost sounds like a bad (or possibly awesome) zombie B-Movie.
