Sometimes a cultural experience so completely overwhelms your senses that nothing else can get through. The South African Zef group Die Antwoord (Afrikaans for The Answer) is such a case. Made up of MC Ninja (aka Waddy Jones) and Yo-landi Vi$$er (aka Yolandi Visser), both former members of the conceptual medium-art hip-hop group MaxNormal.TV, along with DJ Hi-Tek, Die Antwoord mixes hillbilly white-trash Afrikaans-inflected rap with the pulsating rave anthems of early 00s warehouse parties. It is impossible not to sit and take notice.
