Do you chaps keep your vinyl in some kind of order? And if so, what system do you use? Alphabetical? Year of pressing? Record Label? BPM? Key? Sub-genre? Height of producer?

I try and keep it in the order I bought it. I find it really easy to know the whereabouts of everything in the stack. However, that's only about 100 records. No idea how big your collection is, but it might be difficult for larger amounts.

literally hell on earth knowing you have to sift through all your tunes to get some sort of structure back. mine are all over the place atm so need at least a day to sort through them all. I tend to put all liquid together, then old classics, then techy etc etc..

also make little piles of current tunes you love playing.

I keep my record box in alphabetical order by artist. The rest are all over the place. I literally can't walk in my bedroom because there is vinyl everywhere. I need to sort out some storage

I try to keep mine sorted alphabetically by label, with newest release from that label in front and working backwards by release date/cat number. Kinda helps me keep track of things. I really in the need to get more individual boxes or crates to put things in though, as getting to releases at the back of the stacks is kind of a pain. After a few good sessions though there is usually a decent amount of plates that need to be resorted.

They are in some sort of order but I couldn't possibly explain any kind of logic to it. But I know where they are all are and I dare not try and reorganise them.

Used quite a lot of different ways. Been using a really good one recently, all by label, one create for the darker stuff one of the lighter stuff and all the really big EP's and albums on my shelf next to decks. Works really well as its easy to find a leg;el in the box to out tunes back.
