Several of the tracks on his profile are credited to various artist names, but that doesn't have to mean anything. Do you have any proof that they are not the same person?

It's been years so I might not have this right but..

Wasn't those the mods that were uploaded here, by someone called DJ Distance that turned out to be ripped? I remember the shitstorm about J Graham or something, on here and over at CTG as well. I got a funny feeling that it might have been me that spotted them to start with? Xerxes, Andromeda and a few others mods that were clearly ripped.

Then some more mods turned up credited with Cavin Crew and/or MGS that were also spotted a couple of days later...

Maybe it's archived here or somewhere..  Apart from the mods that were identified as ripped I kept the 9 others (that I know of) for posterity...

Yup, we appear to have a report here: https://modarchive.org/forums/index.php?topic=1539.0

Apparently it was last edited by me, and quite likely I added the last entry there, which is the module that Flashy also reported here. I think what might have gone wrong here is that the rip was reported, then the ripped module and the original were merged but accidentally the artist info from the ripped info was kept. I will remove that artist info now.

The other modules will stay associated to that account for now, if only to help reminding us that they need to be identified.

So, did J. Graham ever create actual tracked modules, as in the Cavin Crew/MGS/DJ Distance or as his real name?

Tbh, I'd forgotten I still had those 9 modules until this thread.

so far:
cavin_bet.xm = ???
ccsum.xm = ???
cc_ambi.xm = [unknown] - jbird.xm
cc_ditmh.xm = DJKIKE - TheOne
cc_emo.xm = ???
cc_itg.xm = FaNtAzY - i got the groove
cc_sd.xm = seko - anonymous
cc_trs.xm = BAM - Voices From Heaven
cc_woas.xm = Aberration - A Story with No words
cc_wtmy.xm = Petr Mikovec - Tommy Knockers
doyou.xm = ???
mgs_core.xm = Airforce - Ayla MegaMix

first_pt1.xm = Kricke - I'm Lost In My Mind
(^ dunno if its the same dj-distance but it's still a rip)

Tracks "identified" as "???" indicates that it's unidentifiable, due to them not being on ModLand (and probably The Mod Archive as well)

I'm not following - neither of them have been asigned to dj-distance? Either way, I have merged the tracks into their respective originals.

PS: Please do not vote rips with 1 star - if I forgot to remove your vote when merging them into original tracks, you are effectively downvoting the original artist.
