Hi!

When you DJ, you have a lot of CD:s with you in a case or something. I wonder which the best way is to sort them in the CD-case? I mean, you can't have all the tracks and CD:s in alphabetical order, because you burn new CD:s all the time. And you can't burn two tracks on the same CD that you want to mix into eachother?

How do you people do?

Thanks!

I just put different tracks on cd's in a case, sorting after genre,, like "House CD 1, 2, 3, 4" etc.
And for the bigger hits (I Found U for an example) with many remixes I burn down on a seperate CD.

But my case atm is so messy, haha, but cba to "re-case" it.
