Die Antwoord (Afrikaans: "The Answer") is a Zef-Rap band from Cape Town, South Africa consisting of Ninja, Yo-Landi Vi$$er and DJ Hi-Tek.
The band labels themselves as a mixture of many diverse cultures all mixed into one. An article in 'The Guide' explains more about the making of the band.
The band has signed with Netherlands music company Magnetron Music and is planning to tour Europe in April 2010. They announced via their website that they will be starting their tour, visiting France, Belgium, Amsterdam and London, sometime in April 2010.
Tracks from their upcoming album '$o$' are streamed on their official website.
Here is a video for their tune 'Ninja'.
I am loving this...it's wild! The beats are insane the the vocal back and forth between Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er is funny and fits perfectly with the whole crunk/b-more vibe they have going one. Cheeky but very well done! This fits nicely in with M.I.A. and Santigold.
Definitely a band to watch in 2010.
