Weekly Challenge: 

In Serato, add new crates on the left-hand side to get started on organizing your DJ library!


Ex. A typical way to organize your music would be by genre. Therefore, crate names such as hip-hop, rock, R&B, house, trap, etc. would be a good starting point.  Be aware that these general genres have several subgenres too (use subcrates!) However, organization doesn’t stop there. There is no right way to organize - do what works for you!
