Traxsource Charts


Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, and good night ladies and gentlemen.

It’s Jackman Jones and welcome to the first edition of Tales from the DJ Booth. This is a weekly blog of not only my stories and experience behind the booth and as a fan of music, but other stories as well from other DJs/producers.

This week, I’m going to talk about the DJ chart I post every Sunday. Before I get into it, I would like to thank everyone who have been supporting my music and radio shows.

Currently my third collaboration with Swanky called ‘Don’t Cry 4 U‘ is out now on Traxsource and is climbing the top 100 garage chart very nicely. You can find the link to the track on the website in the music section.

Currently my 3 radio shows are on hiatus due to equipment issues but returns in May. You can find past radio shows on my mixcloud and the link to my mixcloud is on the main page.

Also you can listen live to my show by going to the radio section and clicking on the show link when it is live. I will be making an announcement this week which dates the show will be happening in May.

Even though the traxsource dj chart has been around for a
while now, I was introduced to it by Deep Fix Recordings founder Wez BK in 2020.

Now the dj chart is not an officialchart like the top 100. It’s a personal chart that every dj/producer can make every week, 2 weeks, or monthly and it lets you know what music they are listening to or playing in their sets.

It also helps promote the tracks to fans who view the chart and also introduces them to dj/producers that they may never of and would want to follow. Consider it a promotional chart.

Personally, I do my charts based on the 5 sub genres I
like (deep, soulful, jackin, garage, and nu disco) and sometimes sub genres I don’t listen to.

Also I like to share music on my facebook(both pages) so my dj charts are another way to introduce fans to new music, artists, and labels you may not have heard of.

Now for those of you who are starting to do your own chart, just remember that you need to have a minimum of 10 tracks but you can have as a many as 50 and you can display whichever sub genre you want. You can also do daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, and monthly charts. Basically, the sky is the limit.

I’m sure you are aware of the weekend weapons, hype, and essential charts. Consider it your own version of the above
mentioned charts since they are also promotional charts that are separate from the top 100.

So that is it in a nutshell. I hope this clarifies things as to why I do my dj charts on traxsource.

Comments and suggestions to future topics are always welcome. I only ask you keep it respectful.

Thanks and we will see you on the dancefloor!!!
