Queuing Music Lists

Queue new music lists in the Manage My Nightlife app to build a custom mix for the Current Playlist and override the Media Player’s automatic Scheduler.

Queuing Music Lists to update the Current Playlist

Lists

In the Manage My Nightlife menu, there are two pages: Queue Lists and Current Playlist. It’s important to understand that one of these feeds into the other.

From the Queue Lists page, Manage My Nightlife users queue the music lists they want to play.

When new music lists are queued, an algorithm mixes the tracks from the lists to create the Current Playlist.

From the Current Playlist page, users can see the new tracks that have been added into the mix.

To ensure the Current Playlist is never repetitive or jarring for listeners, the algorithm acts as a digital DJ. Shuffling tracks from the music lists queued while following a beat wave method that seamlessly blends songs together.

DJ Sets

DJ Sets are a collection of tracks, designed for different crowds and atmospheres. They’re carefully curated by the music team at Nightlife, and set to play in their custom order. This means the tracks will temporarily change the Current Playlist to the DJ Set’s list for the time it has been queued to play.

Options for queuing

If you’re using Manage My Nightlife on iOS or Android, there are three different ways to queue a List and DJ Set.
