    Default Every DJ MUST know their music

    After you organize your music correctly (artist, genre, comments, tagged key)

    How do you set-up your playlists? or what do you think is the best method

    P.S - screenshots are welcome

    lol i remember starting a thread about this about a month or 2 ago...

    Music collection filewise... TOTAL SHITSTORM

    iTunes and traktor playlists, sorted by Year, Genre, and use star rating as kind of an indicator if the track is a "big" track or "banger" (so ill give it 4-5 stars) Mid way tracks, warmer tracks 3 stars, and kinda real start of the night stuff 1 or 2 stars.

    Ill also tag the tracks to tell me if they came from beatport, iTunes or Soundcloud/Promo

    +1 Stars are the easiest way. I use the stars to mark songs by how popular/energetic they are and then use iTune's smart playlists to sort them into playlists named after what the star rating means. That way I wont forget what they mean. It's my failsafe. Also if a song doesn't have a star rating, it means I haven't heard it yet and I know to check it out which normally leads to me deleting it because it was a crap track anyway.
