Tokolosh, I had to include this review from Amazon of that Uniform record:

"In a word "horrendous". Must admit I bought it by mistake thinking it was the album by the band protocol. Flicked through the tracks in my car thinking I was listening to Aphex Twin re emerged from his post "90's" hibernation (or maybe he is still going, I hated his music too much too care!)White noise is the only way to describe this collection of tuneless, experimental, rubbish. Its the sort of music that only dogs can hear.....which may say a lot about me....worryingly!!"

A rather kinder review.

Uniform - "Protocol"

From 'The Wire' issue #266

2nd Gen's Wajid Yaseen follows up "Not A Word", his 2003 Uniform debut, with a more focused and assured collection of dark electronic half-songs. "Protocol" sees him abandoning beats altogether for abrasive drones and brittle atmospheres. But, thankfully, he avoids the sulphurous murk of his Dark Ambient peers. Whereas its predecessor sounded thin and unfinished, Yaseen's tracks here serve as perfect backdrops to an impressive array of guest performances. Lydia Lunch's wry self-parody and Dalek's grand guignol macho posturing raise smiles and send shivers simultaneously.

Germseed's Alice Kemp provides material of unspeakable depravity for two monologues that can't help but suggest the Throbbing Gristle of "Hamburger Lady".

Alan Vega sounds more swaggeringly committed than at any time since the second Suicide album, certainly far more at home than he did with Pan Sonic. And Terry Edwards takes flight on sax on "The Symbolist", in a performance of genuine fury that recalls and surpasses the screaming clarinet workouts of Richard H Kirk with early Cabaret Voltaire.

Do any of you guys know the African Dope Label.

Bands like:
Krushed and Sorted
Godessa
Kalahari Surfers
Felix Laband
The Constructus Corporation
MoodPhase5
and my fav, The Real Estate Agents

Best label to come out of South Africa, like ever.
Krushed and Sorted have had some gigs in the UK in recent years.

The Real Estate Agents

For those not up to date on the cutting edge of South African originality, The Real Estate Agents is the dynamic pairing of lab kids on distortion Sibot and Markus Wormstorm. These two unstable sonic scientists with a fetish for low-fi audio-visual property values (who are also the brains and beats behind that other fine experiment called The Constructus Corporation, but that?s a different biography all together) have both made deeply distinct impressions on the leftfield music scenes both on home soil and abroad, where their disdain for conventional DJ or production laws has led them to be much hailed and critically acclaimed by the electronic music cognoscenti.
The mergence of the two mix maestros on The Real Estate Agents project has got to be one of the most exiting things to happen in the past decade for organic electronic music this side left of the mainstream.

LTJ Bukem is pure techno, i think, 90s techno, in the vein of leftfield. Zoviet France, i've only heard a few tracks, but from what i've heard, it sounds promising... Very textured noise layered over glitchy electronic beats.

Hard to google it.It's a compilation of bands on a late 70s/early 80s record label that i've had for a few years and has some rather odd stuff on it.Once i'm properly settled in my new home i'll get it out and pass on more info.

I've only heard the Murcof tracks on the Leaf sampler, Lost For Words, but I like them a lot.

More names:

Asa-Chang & Junray
Susumu Yokoto
Nobukazu Takemura
Blectum From Blechdom/Kevin Blechdom/Blevin Blectum/Sagan etc.
Jimi Tenor

Spookie,i bet that you are another one like me who buys all those leaf samplers.There is exactly where i've first heard the music of Murcof as well as that of Susumu Yokota(top musician).All the rest are artists that i respect and good old Jimi Tenor could belt out those sexy techno-pop tunes early on in his career like no other(love the orchestral turn he then went on to take a bit later in his career).

I only bought one Leaf sampler, I didn't know there were more.

Jamie Lidell is similar to Jimi Tenor, but hasn't really made a great record - the closest he's come is with Super-Collider. Live, he just blew me away. He has the most incredible voice.

I shall not forget the great Future Pilot A.K.A.His 'Departure/Arrivals' is one of my favourite records of the 90s(the one where he collaborates with Scanner,Bill Wells Trio,Alan Vega and Revolutionary Corps Of Teenage Jesus,Kim Fowley,etc etc).Most labels(even the most obscure of them) have regular samplers put out periodically to promote the artists in their staples.They are fairly easy to find (in Laaaannddooonnn anyway) and i love them because,even more than mags etc,i've found out about loads of good music as well as bad on them.
