Violent, dark, savage, erotic and just twisted as all fuck Die Antwoord has been one of my favorite duos in the past couple years. Inspired by the turbulent environment of South Africa these two have created a phenomenal fusion of electronic music and innovative hip-hop.
Their lyrics are incredibly explicit and tackle very controversial topics which no doubt has helped to propel their notoriety. The vocals from Ninja and Yo-Landi are very distinguishable and have provided a great platform for a variety of artists such as ill.gates and MartyParty to take put their own edits.
Today the duo known as NERO has taken one of my personal Die Antwoord tracks and put his own spin on it, and as everything else NERO seems to touch it came out pretty good. The main structure of the song stays pretty well intact, NERO adds in a nice sprinkling of some grimy bass lines which I feel is incredibly suiting for Die Antwoord’s image. Check out the track below, and a few other of Die Antwoord’s South African swag, cheers.
