I’m trying to catalog an artist who used to make My Little Pony fanmusic (don’t judge me), but has now moved in a more general direction and apparently tried to whitewash with a lot of their old material. I’ve since discovered they have two entries here.

Part of the issue is that the artist has gone back and “revamped” their old releases on BandCamp, so (some) albums previously credited as “TheDashDub” are now credited to “Chris Heron” (although they missed a couple album and track credits). Additionally, many track names have been altered to remove MLP character references. For example, the track “Applejack’s Daydream” is now just “Daydream” on BandCamp (although the original title is still extant on YouTube). Album art has also been purged in many instances.
What’s proper procedure here? It’s not entirely clear exactly when this transition happened. Should two separate artist entries be maintained or should they be merged? Should old releases be credited to the original name or the updated name? It seems it’s going to take a lot of work to untangle this, and I want to know which direction I should move before I start.
