First off, everyone sorts their crate differently. This is just our way which all songs are pre-tagged for. Use this, modify it or don’t use it at all. It’s all a personal choice.
Our goal is to help you have the most organized crate and have multiple ways to search for the next song. Our naming convention allows you to use any DJ/Music player, in any scenario. For example, if something goes wrong with Serato or you need to use another DJ software, or even iTunes, you can always find music by using a Finder Window. You will find that the naming convention starts with BPM and all relevant track info in the name, so you can literally find the next song no matter the software or situation.
Multiple Methods to Find the Next Song
Search by Fires EMOJI: Ranking 1 to 3. 3 being the best.
Search by Tempo Grouping: Bottom, Low, Mid, High or Top. If you are in need of a like tempo song across genres.
Search by Energy Level: We put everything through MixedInKey’s energy analysis format. The higher the number the more energy. This is tagged in the “Comments” field.
Search by Genre: All genres are here. They begin with decade then general genre and sometimes more specific i.e. 2010s Pop Rap.
Search by Release: This is the PrimoBangers release date found in the “Remix” field.
We add EMOJIs to the ‘Label’ section of each MP3. The symbols represent different genres while the rating is number of fires. A song can have a rating of 0 to 3 fires. 3 fires being the best.
3 Fire EMOJI Rating System
Rate things how you like. Here we’ll rate things according to the tracks usefulness for a crowd not because we think its dope. A track will get 0 – 3 fires depending on the track’s hotness for its genre. So there are some real shitty songs that do real well for their intended crowd. Enough said.
BPM Jumping SmartCrates
We add tempo info to the ‘Grouping’ tag so you can build SmartCrates to jump from BPM to BPM without scrolling.
High Tempo SmartCrate
Mid Tempo SmartCrate
Low Tempo SmartCrate
We also MP3 tag ‘grouping’ with ways to find the proper transitions quickly.
Low 2 High SmartCrate
Low 2 Mid SmartCrate
Low 2 Low SmartCrate
Repeat this for the other SmartCrates
