Die Antwoord Interwebview

von Redaktion

Ninja and Yo-Landi of Die Antwoord sat down with Xeni Jardin of BoingBoing.net for an interview just after the South African “rap-rave” band’s first-ever US performance at the Coachella music festival. The duo spoke about their explosive, internet-fueled burst to fame, and about the origins of their “car crash music” (it’s disturbing, but you can’t look away) by way of District 9 and an anarchic internet and music subculture in post-Apartheid South Africa. 

We’re told this was the only interview Die Antwoord granted during their US visit. The conversation originally streamed live as part of the Los Angeles Times / Brand X Magazine Coachella Oasis Webcast.
