90's middle eastern electronica album compilation, what's it called?

In the early/mid 90's I found a random CD at a record store that had a compilation of middle eastern electronica

It was on my heavy rotation for years, and I loved it. But for the life of me, I can't remember it's name. It was a sampling of artists on a particular label (whose name I also forget). My google-fu fails me, but probably because my question is so vague, but only has one right answer.

Hive mind, help me! (please).

Does the band name Muslimgauze ring a bell? If so, that will narrow it down a bit.

It rings a bell, but not in relation to this album, and none of the labels listed in this page rang a bell either.

Wasn't this was it?

given the latest answer, it might be worth explaining in more detail what you mean by "middle eastern electronica" (i'd call much of sebmojo's disk "asian underground", but that's a very uk term (for uk music, though)).

I have Asian Travels (which is all South Asian), and I see that there's an Arabian Travels as well. Maybe one of those?

Was it Soundz of the Asian Underground?

It's from 1999 so perhaps too late for you, but could be Arabesque?

I was gonna suggest talvin singh's 'anokha- soundz of the asian underground' compilation too...

I was going to suggest the same thing as patricio. I have (and love) Arabesque Tlata 3, and seems pretty close to what you're describing, except for the year.
