Hi, what do you mean by mixing it? That would imply quite a process if
the songs are unrelated, and would include a lot of artistic judgement
(not just a "process" to go through technically). Is this what you
mean, some kind of creative mixture of two songs, sampling parts of
Hope to help!

There are sites which will allow you to select from a large
database of collections of different types of music, which 
are likely to contain the songs you desire, and mix them
onto a custom CD, in whatever order you would have them play.
Is this the sort of service which would meet your needs?

There is also at least one site which will allow you to upload
original music and will create a CD from those songs, played in
the order you choose. Let me know which of the services I have
described would meet your needs, or what would meet your needs
if the services I've described are not quite 'it'.

Hi, jashnimal !

Ken Lewis offers a service such as you require at:

He writes:

"Ken Lewis has been a top Mixer/Engineer for over ten years. His
credits include twenty-five Gold and Platinum albums, and four
Grammy-nominated albums. Ken has also performed as a musician on
several Gold records."

For out-of-town clients he offers a page at:

" You send me the files to mix. You give me a general direction you
want to go in. I mix the song, rip an MP3, and email it or Instant
message it to you. You download it. Listen to it. Request changes. I
implement your changes, rip another MP3, and then send it off to you
for more changes or your approval. It's really not a long process, and
we just repeat it til you love the mix. I have mixed records using
this method for major label clients quite successfully. Call me and I
can explain in more detail how easy this process is. A good deal of my
mixing business comes from out of town."

Ken is clearly a professional, and I imagine his service is not cheap,
and I am sure he will be very aware
of copyright issues.

Another option would be to do your own mixing using some of the
excellent software that is  now available, at a fraction of the prize
of a set of good turntables. If you were prepared to do this it would 
ensure that the mixes were to your musical taste (as lmnop-ga
suggests). Mixmeister is attractive  software designed for DJs from
beginner to professional. It gives you a very clean interface to
create your own mixes and includes  options for automatic beat mixing
as well as the ability to create mixes automatically. Its starter
