"Forever" (bt_me_for.xm) by BtMe, which was finished on Sep 2003, sounds identical to "Incoming Outburst" (mwg-io.xm) by Mista Waisgai, which was finished on 1999. Please note that the title box remains unchanged.

"Dancing Souls" (ds-souls.xm/btme-souls.xm) by BtMe, which was finished on May 2002, sounds identical to "Fad" (dj_dioxine_-_fad.xm) by Dj DioXine, which was finished on May 1998.

Lol, more rips..

Funny, I have another mod by bt_me with a MGS credit.  The incoming outburst mod name is well funny and pretty ironic.

I have no idea how to spot these rips as the filesize of some of these is way out and not so obvious to identify.  Think I'll just delete them all...

Just a quick note, as soon as I clicked that soundcloud link and saw that Silent Night mix there, I thought hmmm!

While checking for your other dupes/rips I recognised the module. It's in fact Necros' Silent Night.it ... Should imagine the rest are ripped as well.  :o

Funny that he keeps re-releasing it under different names...

I knew I had seen him around on some other platform besides Modarchive. It was Traxinspace indeed. I also have a faint recollection that I've seen the name bt_me or BtMe in the Renoise facebook group often years ago but search is coming up empty and it's pretty tasking to go through years of posts manually.
