November 16 brings the “Electro Hits Mix Pack” with: LMFAO – “I’m In Miami Trick” mixed with Green Velvet – “Shake & Pop”; Steve Aoki ft. [[[Zuper Blaqh]]] – “I’m In The House” (Remix by FSG); and SMD – “Hustler” mixed with Tecnotronic – “Pump Up The Jam.” 

Both packs will run you $7.99/640 MS Points for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 respectively. You’ll be able to download the individual tracks and mixes for 300 Wii Points for Wii.

Additionally, a free compatability update will be made available in November, which will allow DJ Hero 2 players to purchase and play DJ Hero 1 downloadable content. So if you’ve already purchased a bunch of stuff, you weren’t just throwing money to the wind.
