Status: This is an official style guideline.

Additional information on a release or track that is not part of its main title, but required to make it distinguishable from different releases or tracks with the same main title (e.g. track version), must be entered in parentheses after the main title.

Titles of mixes/versions are formatted according to the appropriate language's guidelines; the other parts of this extra information should be in lower case except for words that would normally be capitalised in the language.

Note that this does not apply to sub‐titles, as explained in the subtitles guidelines, since they are handled as parts of the main title. It also doesn't apply to OverClocked ReMix tracks, see OC ReMix series for more info about those.

If a release includes a designation such as EP or E.P., 7", CD, LP, single, etc. as part of its title, we consider that part of the main title, so it should not be removed, and should also not be put in parentheses.

  • Blue (extended mix)
  • Talking All That Jazz (Torti’s Old School Mix of Edits dub)
