You should have prepared several playlists for the evening, the moment will come and you will need them, even if tons of music wishes, a moderation job or wedding games interrupt your DJ mix.

3. Clean up your libary
Too many DJs confuse their private track collection with their DJ Track collection. Complete albums, EPs, whole or entire collections can be found here multiple times. Various tools for MAC like the Gemini duplicate scanner or the “quick search” functions in Windows can identify such duplicate titles or folders and you will be able to remove them later. Why don’t you dump track form your archive you wouldn’t play again? If you clean up this mess you will make the collection much cleaner, easier to manage and the duplicates do not hinder you when you search for tracks. It is worth to think about such a “clearing action”. You do not even play any of the titles from the top 100 list forever, so clean them up as fast as possible.
Doubts? Simply create a backup of your archive and work with a new temporary one.

- Do not integrate whole albums
- Clean your top 100 list
