  1. Pre-Configuring

To pre-configure, I had to know the structure of each and every song and use my musical knowledge in managing the transitions. From the outro to the intro, I achieved this by using the Serato software to configure the final outcome.

 

  1. Pre-sequencing

In preparation for my sequence, I listened to remixes and original House music on the internet. This would help me to select the House music for the live performance.

I pre-sequenced the above song list that I would be using within the live set.
