I don’t know about the precise legalities but I’d guess that theoretically it’s not allowed. Practically, you’re promoting the music and are pretty unlikely to be of interest to the law. I think. Probably. :groucho:

Exactly. Legally you should not be recording and distributing music from record labels if you do not own the rights.

However, dance music relies on dj’s to promote it and therefore labels/artists would never have a problem with people using their material, especially if you add a tracklist! The only issue they have is when people distribute the track unmixed to people who would otherwise have to purchase the vinyl/cd or what have you.
