Feed Me put out a few mixes that include a myriad of other tracks, but they’re released as a single track (like this track and its tracklist). This makes it a little clunky when you use Picard to tag the track because each individual track is included, instead of the entire track.
How should the tracklist be set up for this kind of DJ Mixes?
I would add another release in the same release group with everything in one track.
The new release should have the release date as the date that it was put onto Soundcloud, and have the same artwork etc.
I think the track title would usually be each song seperated by a ‘/’ eg:
Little Cat Steps / Chinchilla / Gravel / Mositif… etc
But that seems quite long and I couldn’t find the style guide for this, so maybe someone else wants to chip in.
I would say the only “real” (official) release here is the one-track continuous mix, actually - the other one doesn’t exist as such and should probably not be set as official if added at all (I see that this one is not set as official anyway, but speaking generally )
I’ve just been trying to create a Release but I personally don’t care about having track lists on mixes, especially if they are one continuos file, but before I discard them, is it worth me posting the raw text anywhere?
The main problem is that when I paste the text, MB doesn’t know how to make sense of it, especially when it comes to multi-deck mixes where DJ’s tease tracks in the mix but don’t actually drop them.
Here is the text file which accompanied two MP3s of a 2 hour set by Andy C at The End in London…
2002-12-20: RAM Records ‘Xmas Special’: The End, London, UK
Dillinja - “This Is A Warning” featuring Aundrea Hope - Valve / dubplate *
)EI3C - “Snow Cat” - B.C. / release
I will lose the track lists to thousands of sets like this because whoever compiled them didn’t give them file names, just bunged them in the ZIP untitled.
What do I do?
There’s no way on Earth I’m formatting all this myself for thousands of mixes but somebody accessing MB later may be dying to ID a track played.
I agree here. I often drop readmes from bootlegs, etc into that area. Good to preserve the data. Even if formatting is a bit janky, as long as it is readable.
I have also taken old annotations and then processed it further. If you just copy\paste the text so it is available, someone else will likely come along in the following years and do something further with your track list.
