1. Rock Solid Track Import System
2. Regular Track Searching
3. Consistent Track Tagging
The obvious tip here is to consistently tag the meta tags of your songs with keywords, genres, and other searchable cues so songs can be easily tracked down in the heat of a set. The less obvious is to establish a consistent system of cue point tagging for ALL songs. With this system you may not always remember every detail of a track, but it’s obvious where everything is. Here are my personal favorites:
4. Daily Rhythm, Technique Exercises, and Review
Many musical experts have said that 20 minutes of practice a day produces better long term results than a single two hour practice session once a week. No matter what the technical skill; mix, juggling or scratching, regular daily practice sessions will lead to amazing moments on stage.
5. Consistent Recording and Review
You are probably recording your best sets and saving them but what about the bad ones? Do they ever get listened to? I would suggest that you record and listen to every single practice session and live DJ set. Then, even though it might be painful, force yourself to listen and learn through the entire thing.
