How to create a list with unique artists

I'm trying to solve a specific problem and hope that your tool will do it for me.
I've got an iTunes smart playlist that will give me a whole bunch of songs that are (based on a lot of criteria) listed as "underplayed" in my library. I would like to be able to take that list and create another list from it that removes all but one of the tracks from each artists.

So if I have 30 Radiohead songs, 40 Beatles songs, and 6 Dua Lipa songs, I would like it to produce a playlist that has 3 songs in it: 1 Radiohead, 1 Beatles, and 1 Dua Lipa.

Do you have any way to do that with beaTunes?

    Hey Patrick,

    I'm sorry, but there is no built-in way to do that with beaTunes.
    You could try to program this behavior using the API.

    Cheers,
