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.

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.

This extra title information (ETI) must be put in lower case, except for those cases where it represents a proper name (i.e. the titles of a (re)mix, the names of places or persons, etc.).

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.

Remixes

For the guidelines that apply to OverClocked ReMix tracks, see OC ReMix series.

(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 is 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.

Examples

  • Situations Like These (album version)
  • Blue (extended mix)
  • 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)
