A number of my friends are massive fans of South Africa’s Die Antwoord and their experimental hip hop and rave electronica. I’m pretty sure they’re celebrating the fact that the trio have unleashed their Suck On This Mixtape today, off which some preview tracks were already floating around this past week. Ninja, Yolandi, and DJ Hi-Tek link up with various guests on the harsh clamorous and vibrant noisy delight. From Suck On This Mixtape comes buzzing vociferous GUCCI COOCHIE, which features Dita Von Teese, The Black Goat, and God. It’s razor sharp and wired shocking addictive, as one would expect from the riotous radical trio. Stream the Suck On This Mixtape in full on Soundcloud, or download free, on their website.

OFFICIAL VID: Die Antwood – Baby’s On Fire

June 5, 2012

I’m not exactly the biggest Die Antwoord fan, though I personally know people who are huge fans. It’s just a matter of personal taste. But I can’t help being drawn to this new video for Baby’s On Fire (off their recent album TEN$ION). Maybe it’s  because the song is more electronic and brighter than their usual stuff, or maybe I’m just drawn to the absurd playfulness of it, I’m not sure. But this is fun, rave-y rap stuff from the South African crew with awesome industrial techno beats and an earworm of a chorus. It’s even better on repeat listens, trust me.
