The Constructus Corporation was an electronic/hip hop group from Cape Town, South Africa.

Formation of the band[edit]

Jones relocated to Cape Town and began collaborating with DJ Dope of Krushed & Sorted and Felix Laband on the music for a multi-media project he had conceptualized, involving a graphic novel with a soundtrack and live show. These sessions spawned the "Man With No Name" track on African Dope's Cape Of Good Dope compilation in 2002, which later gradually mutated into The Constructus Corporation outfit. During the year-long production process, a then unknown female vocalist called Anri du Toit joined the group, credited as Anica The Snuffling (later known as Yolandi Visser from Watkin's current project, Die Antwoord) on the credits.

After The Constructus Corporation[edit]

Watkin Tudor Jones since expanded into the graphic arts field, fluffy toy-making and other creative outlets, releasing two more projects, such as the Watkin Tudor Jones solo project (also known as Fucknrad, with Sibot) and the multimedia project MaxNormal.TV (not to be confused with his other outlet, Max Normal) with Anri du Toit, who later had a daughter with Watkin named Sixteen Jones. Sibot and Markus Wormstorm later collaborated on the 3-CD album The Real Estate Agents, and Felix Laband went on to be signed by distinguished German independent label Compost Records.
