I am still working on Part 2 of my 3-part (maybe four) DJ Hero review, including everything from looks, to hardware, to gameplay, and even music. You can check out Part I here.
To celebrate, here are my top 3 tracks in DJ Hero. They are some of the best mashups I've ever heard, and I hope you enjoy them as well.
DJ Shadow's Six Days combines with a song I've never heard of to make pure happiness. The scratching is so great in this one, and it's a blast to play.

This is one you may've heard in the commercial, or playing by itself in Best Buy. It's a great mashup and really screws with the vocals. I had no idea Benassi's beat had so much potential with hip-hop.

This one's a little old, but has some great vocal sampling. The scratching's pretty tight, yet I find it hard to believe this mix was made on two turntables. But it's cool - it's good enough as is. The middle is a little weak in my opinion, I mean it sounds great, just doesn't fit.

Enjoy, and stay tuned for my other DJ Hero reviews,
