Hailing from Cape Town, Die Antwoord (Afrikaans for ‘The Answer’) is the rap/rave brainchild of Ninja, Yo-Landi Vi$$er and DJ Hi Tek. Ninja raps, DJ Hi-Tek samples everything from mile.dk’s “Butterfly” to Gillette’s “Short Dick Man,” and Yo-Landi’s childlike bordering-on-chipmunk voice ties it all together.

Think ridiculously catchy hooks with a look that is South-African-trailer-trash meets-Lady-Gaga. Interestingly, Die Antwoord may in fact actually be a continuation of previous conceptual music projects, most notably the conceptual rap experience that was Max Normal.
