With the advances of technology, the art of mixing has changed dramatically, and more emphasis is given to track selection. Preparing various sets of playlist would definitely improve the work flow of a set, thus improving the listening experience of your audience. There are plenty of ways to sort a playlist, to each his own, as for myself, I like to sort by basslines (bpm), keys and aspects of a breakdown (depth and energy of a breakdown).
It is an art within itself, sorting out tracks that goes well with one another, blend seamlessly and bridges the vibe. In short, if you haven’t sorted your tracks in playlist formats, perhaps it’s time you do, and experience the flow for yourself.
