Style for Remixes and Alternative Versions of Songs

(Re)mix and version information of a song represented by a track must be entered in parentheses after the track's Main Title. The title of the mix/version and other proper names are formatted according to the Capitalization Standard, the other parts of this extra information must be put in lower case.

For the guidelines to apply to OverClocked ReMix tracks, check OC ReMix Series Style.

This is an OfficialStyleGuideline. It is a sub-style of the more general Extra Title Information Style.

Ordering of Extra Title Information which includes Featuring Artist Style, Part Number, Track Version can be found under Track Title.

Example

Blue (extended mix)

Bust the Future Wall (DJ Visage remix)

The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle (remix Juhannus by Sami Koivikko)

Talking All That Jazz (Torti's Old School Mix of Edits dub)

Bear Witness (Automator's 2 Turntables and a Razor Blade re-edit)

Disciple (demo)

Discussion

IIUC The original artist is to be filed as the TrackArtist and the remixer in the TrackTitle in parantheses, right? But what about albums? Who should be the PrimaryArtist there: The original artist or the remixer? --DonRedman

  • Does the ReleaseType matter, not really or? It may be helpfull to post/link an example which isn't clear for you (or others). ;) Here some examples, where only one track is a remix (disc) and where the whole album contains just remixes (disc 1 & disc 2). --Schika

Untitled Remixes

How should remixes without an official remix title be formatted? Case in point, Nine Inch Nails' Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D. Three of the remixes have official names, two of which are mentioned in the liner notes (the other, a re-released fan remix, has an official remix title on its original distribution site, but not inside the liner notes). --cparker15
