Die Antwoord join Picasso, Matisse, Kandinsky at the Guggenheim

How did this happen? How has it come to pass that the faces of Ninja and Yo-Landi will appear in the same building – designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and known as one of the twentieth century’s most important architectural landmarks – as the faces and images conceived by Picasso, Matisse, and Kandinsky? Strangely enough (although on reflection it makes total sense), Die Antwoord’s music video “Zef Side” has been chosen as one of the winners of the global video art competition “You Tube Play,”… Continue

Die Antwoord Sets their sights on Mickey Mouse

In one short year, the trio (which also includes DJ Hi-Tek) have become pop stars, with a major label deal at Interscope, tours with M.I.A. and controversial, crazily NSFW videos for tracks like "Evil Boy" (watch below). With their debut album $0$ out this week and the group in the middle of their own U.S. trek, SPIN.com caught up with Ninja to talk about his impressions of American culture, the trio's phallic-saturated video, and why he wants Die Antwoord (South African for "The Answer") to be… Continue

Consequence of Sound interview with Ninja from Die Antwoord

You guys have a lot of music floating around the internet. Why did you decide to put these exact songs on your major label debut?

The thing is, we’re making new tracks all the time. We’ve got too many tracks to put onto an album. We just wanted to choose the most concentrated, powerful songs. And they said choose ten, and we were like “Jesus Christ! 10? That’s like choosing between f****** children.” With the songs on the internet and the five on the EP, there are…

$O$ is "Vulgar, Odd, Amazing"

Equally amazing is how catchy this band's music is. It's hard to find anyone who has heard "Enter the Ninja" and hasn't spent the afternoon humming the tune. Initially, it seemed like this was the only song that could have this affect, but that doubt was quickly dispelled after listening to "Rich B***h." After just one listen, "Enter the Ninja" was replaced by a new tune, which was just as addictive.



Humor is another aspect of "$0$," which makes it a must-own. It's unclear…

4 Stars for $O$ from the Montreal Gazette

Die Antwoord $0$

The incredible interweb hype surrounding Die Antwoord’s breakout Enter the Ninja video (closing in on 8 million views) has led to a five-album Interscope deal, beginning with this reissue of last year’s online full-length. It’s more a compendium of Die Antwoord highlights than a new album, although the new Diplo-produced single Evil Boy (featuring another outlandish video) points to the band’s potential to tap into multiple demographics (club-pop-rap)…

Die Antwoord to bush circumcisions

The three-member group consisting of lead rapper Ninja, Yo-Landi Vi$$er and DJ Hi-Tek, performed an hour-long show at the Bassline in Johannesburg on Saturday, and they've taken a new member under their wing - an 18-year-old street child known only as "Wanga".



"We are trying to get him to join our band, but there are issues with getting him an ID. However, we are working on that," said lead rapper Ninja, (real name Watkin Tudor Jones). Ninja has even given him his own…
