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…

Die Antwoord to Perform With Aphex Twin at London Electronic Dance Fest

Die Antwoord always seemed to be born out of Aphex Twin's classic "Windowlicker" video, so it makes a lot of sense that the South African rap act will perform with the electronic music godhead at this weekend's London Electronic Dance Festival.



The news comes straight from Die Antwoord's Facebook: "Yo NINJA and YO-LANDI are going to bum rush APHEX TWINS set at LED to kick some next-level raps with the Grand Master himself...in your fokken face poes." And we just confirmed the… Continue

Rolling Stone Reviews Die Antwoords EP '5'

A group of self-proclaimed "zef" (i.e., white trash) South Africans who rap in English and Afrikaans over rave-style beats? Turns out, that's just what hip-hop needed. Die Antwoord's "Enter the Ninja" video went viral in February, introducing the world to Ninja, the group's glowering lead MC, and Yo-Landi Vi$$er, a pixieish sidekick with the world's weirdest mullet. On this EP, Ninja's staccato flow kills even when you only understand every fourth word. Boasting, dissing and smoking dope,…

Introduction to Die Antwoord from TheSun.co.uk

"Ninja credits Hi-Tek - who "owns a PC computer" - with pioneering their unique 'Zef Rap-Rave' sound, while the MC himself is responsible for the cutting lyrics about life in the ghetto.



Words like "open your mind as quick as a fart" give you an idea of the gritty turmoil inside his tortured mind.



Ninja and Yo-Landi demonstrate an aptitude for dancing in their YouTube videos, with the MC unveiling a fondness for wiggling his package around during close-up…

LA Times Live review: Die Antwoord at the El Rey Theatre

In Afrikaans, the band name Die Antwoord means "The Answer." But one big unsolved question has followed the South African rap-rave trio since their deliciously bonkers music videos began circulating online months ago -- are they for real?

This is usually a silly debate in the artifice-obsessed world of pop music. But Die Antwoord so perfectly upends every au courant collision in urban, electronica and world music today that, well, larger forces seem at play. The band's founder,…
