Seems to like Jogeir's tunes quite a lot. I will forward this information to Jogeir.

track 16 (It Happened Only Once) = Yawron - Flashdance-1 (flashdance-1.mod). The track is slowed down a little bit.

This Swagato Gangopadhyay guy seems to be running a half-legitimate business. Except all of his work is clearly stolen. He has been releasing ripped songs since 2011 or so (there are earlier albums on youtube as well). https://www.facebook.com/Questz.World/

The difference to the other recent finds is that he's just outright using his own real name.

"Started in 2006, Questz World slowly became one of the premier music labels around the world" yeah right ;D

It's self-published via that label of theirs, so in order to get this stuff down you would have to mail them and threaten with legal action I guess.

2 tracks identified....
the vacuum within = nitzer - emptiness (nz_empt.xm)
silent connection = silencio / connection - xerxes' dream (xerxes_dream.it)

(notice that the track 'silent connection' has a title based on the original author's handle and the name of the group the original author was a part of)
