    when im at home i have newer stuff in one area n older stuff in another. But wen i play out i have promos at d front and general releases at d back of my box. Furthermore in promos and general releases they are usually in a record label order. I cant stand it wen i need to drop a tune at a certain point wen playin out but cant find the track!

    Made the stupid mistake of Putting 'P' on all my white labels and promo's, iD'ing the side i play - now got 100's of em which is a right bitch if i'm looking for something in particular, generally same as most others really, what i am currently playing and then a pile of quick mix teasers and a pile of recent Promo's. a friend of mine is proper anal about that 'Alphabetical' thing - makes sense but it's all about storage, got too many tunes and not enough space if you see what i mean??

    as far as the box goes - brand new tunes/promos at the front.

    a few combos and tingz in the middle or relativly new tunes.

    then older tunes to the back.

    also have a a group of teases lumped together in there - stuff i know i more or less never full drop.

    i generally keep tunes i know go well together next to each other in the box. i know it pretty well whenever i set out, so never really searching through trying to find things.

    as far as the collection goes.
    i've got a lump of jump up/dance floor
    then a lump of liquid
    then all ep's/lp's
    then just 'everything else' whatever that may be....

    ya na.

    its essential to arrange them and keep them in the same order so you check go straight to the tune you want quickly.
    i dont have my decks anymore but my was set-up like this....

    1.picture discs
    2.promos (a-z)
    3.black labels
    4.small full releases (labels all 2geva in release order oldist 1st)
    5.big full releases
    6.ep's (2x vinyl eps at the front 3x after etc...)

    oldies (2005 backwards) in a seperate pile but in the same order as the newbies.

    i think it also looks alot better than just having them all over the place
    respect

    I sort mine by genre with promos at the front. Helps me to move through the styles easier that way I find.
