  1. Just to expand on this, any advise I give below, is catered more for the digital DJ using software.

    I find it much easier and quicker to let iTunes do all the organising for me in terms of folders and genres etc. 

    I move all new tracks into just ONE folder, so all my music is in one place 'forever'
    The reason for this is, if you decide that a "new" song is no longer new and had to move it from the "Pop-New" folder to "Pop-old" folder, you would cause iTunes and your software to think this track is now missing, as its not in the location it thinks its in.

    I use smart playlists within iTunes to create playlists based on genre, energy, feel, clean or explicit songs etc

    Once my new songs are in my "Music" folder, I then import to iTunes and begin tagging the metadata with everything applicable to that track, for instance, I will write [CLEAN] [PEAK] in the comments column, which will put the song into playlists with clean lyrics only and songs that I would play at peak time. I also update the genre, year etc so the song will also be put into those playlists. 

    So any song could be in 4 or 5 different playlists, so it would suit many different situations 
    for example I have a mashup called "TIESTO & DIPLO vs DEV – BASS DOWN C'MON" which is in 7 different playlists: Mashups, Clean, Peak, Remixes, 2010-2014, Commercial/Club. So I know when I'm in a certain situation, say only playing songs 2010-2014, I can see all info about that song, Im not tied down to only the songs I've put in one playlist.

    Feel free to listen to my droning voice which goes into a bit more detail

    (Ellaskins, Im a fan of your work and watch you regularly, so if you don't like me plugging my video, I will happily edit out the link)

  2. How come people like hardwell, Martin garrix etc have 4 decks?

    Also a question I am 13 and I want to get decks that are affordable for me what would be good.

    How would I get to play out in London as that is where I live.

    Is it also good to produce as well? Elkins

  3. Great advice and something i've been using for years now. I'm a bit of a computer geek so i know how important folder structure is to find things. I use a similar structure myself having the main folders as….House,Techno,Trance,DnB,Breaks etc. Inside each i then have 1 folder called Record box and then a number of sub folders eg. vocal house,deephouse,techhouse etc. The record box folder contains the tracks i'm playing the most of each main style which i switch up and change tunes constantly.

    Great tips Jonathan keep up the good work.

  4. first off, well done to Jonathan on all his success, and this is just a discussion point please people throw this around and back at me but i dont have a file system, but i only have about 700 songs on my usb for my cdj's (and am yet to make the move to a laptop and MIDI control) but i find that i get a fairly even spread of songs by just going through in alphabetical order, one cdj starting A the other starting Z and just going until i find a random song that will work with the current on playing. any suggestions on a folder system?? thanks guys!

  5. lol great vid listen what I do is very similar.. my solution to having my folders fill up too much is that I create a hole new folder every few months full of music called TOP 40, in that folder is sub folders which contain genres, within those genre folders are actually different vibes of songs, so for example if it's the start of the night and I wanna play a slower hip hop song from a few months ago that everyone knows, I would go say TOP 40  2014 1.0 since I'm currently on 2..0 for the year of 2014, then I would go into the hiphop folder or maybe R&B, and there would be sub folders that go like, "warmup, hype, ratchet, remainders". In that case I would go into the warmup playlist and there would be a bunch of warmup songs for the hiphop genre from a few months ago. The remainders playlist I mentioned is also my method of keeping tons and tons of records since you can never have too many as a dj, and keeping them seperate from tracks you will actually play and people will typically want to hear.
