Here are some tips for preparing your DJ crates (i.e., collections of music that you use as a DJ):
Organize your music: Make sure your music is organized in a way that makes it easy to find and access. This may involve creating folders or playlists, tagging your tracks with metadata (such as genre, artist, and BPM), and using DJ software or a DJ app to manage your collection.
Categorize your music: Consider organizing your music into categories or genres to make it easier to find specific tracks when you’re DJing. For example, you might create folders or playlists for different styles of music, such as house, techno, hip hop, etc.
Keep your crates up to date: Regularly update your crates with new music to keep your sets fresh and interesting. This may involve purchasing new tracks, downloading free music from online sources, or swapping tracks with other DJs.
Know your audience: Tailor your crates to the specific needs and preferences of your audience. This may involve including a variety of genres and styles of music, as well as tracks that are popular or well-known.
Experiment and try new things: Don’t be afraid to mix things up and try new tracks and genres in your sets. This can help you to discover new music and keep your sets fresh and exciting.
Overall, preparing your DJ crates involves organizing and categorizing your music in a way that makes it easy to access and use when you’re DJing. By keeping your crates up to date and tailoring them to the needs of your audience, you can create dynamic and engaging DJ sets.
