is it legal to sell dj mixes of songs?

i have made several mixes of techno songs, and i was wondering if it is legal to sell them on itunes?

Update:

the artist of the songs i have mixes has 3 albums of unmixed "dj friendly" music he made specificly for aspiring djs to mix at clubs. is that kind of like a go ahead?

    You need permission to sell alterations of someone else's copyrighted material. Try contacting the artist's manager and ask for permission. It probably won't cost you anything except a little time unless you have to sign a contract so they can collect royalties off of any money you make.

    it is NOT legal, since you don't own the copyrights to those songs

    you would need to get written permission, and you would have to pay royalties to the owners of the music
