Course Sneak Peek – How Danny Manages His Serato DJ

What’s Inside The Course?

This course is structured into five modules.

  1. Sourcing – Learn where to find your music in the first place. The difference between streaming and owning music. Where to find new and unique edits of tracks and how to get onto record label mailing lists. You will also learn the importance of file quality and discover hacks to convert your Spotify playlists into your DJ software.
  2. Categorisation – What is a genre? How do you know the difference, and what if you get it wrong? Learn how to categorise each track correctly and save yourself a headache in the long run.
  3. Organisation – This is where systems come into place. Learn where to store your music and backup safely and efficiently. Declutter your music library for peak performance and store your files in a neat & tidy system so you can spend more time DJing than organising.
  4. Music Library – See how we organise each of our libraries! Learn how to automate smart crates, create custom columns, discover unused settings in your DJ software and master methods like tagging, colour coding and advanced sync manager systems.
  5. Advanced Management – This is where we clean up your music library, discover how history sets are the ultimate cheat code and get hands-on with workflow.
