Die Antwoord


Die Antwoord (Afrikaans for "The Answer") is a South African rap-rave band formed in Cape Town in 2008. Fronted by vocalists Ninja (aka Watkin Tudor Jones) and Yolandi Visser (Yo-Landi Vi$$er), their music is produced by DJ Hi-Tek (aka Justin de Nobrega). Their image draws from the zef counterculture movement associated with working class culture, described by Yolandi as ‘poor but fancy’. Die Antwoord released their first album $O$, online for free, and attracted international attention for their music video to 'Enter the Ninja'.

After briefly signing with Interscope Records, they founded their own label in 2011, Zef Recordz, through which they released their second album, 'Ten$Ion'. The band has gained an international cult following, due in large part to their music videos. In June 2014 they released a new album, 'Donker Mag'
