Can you use songs that don't have lyrics for a mixtape?

So i was wondering can you use songs that are released (in a cd) with no lyrics for mixtape purposes. Like the song never had lyrics like cross-genre . I wanted to use some beats by Ratatat but don't know if it would be illegal..

    As long as you aren't gonna re-sell it for retail profit without their permission. You can use any beat that's what mixtapes are, but to make profit off of it and not pay the producers is copyright infringement..you'll be ok..if you want actual real info. Just google up the dj drama raid and what happ wit him, that will explain it
