At first glance I was pretty shocked from Die Antwoord, didn’t know if I should hate it, love it or both! after the winds settled down I realized that I have lots of respect to artists who stand tall against all odds and deliver raw what comes from inside, Die Antwoord is like that, I don’t have their music on my machine and I wont go to see their show if it comes around but I’ll tell you one thing, I bow down to their guts and creativity, that to me is what art is all about! Rock on! Juxtapoz (a cultural art magazine we adore!) did a small video piece with the artists and here is what came out…check it out!
Juxtapoz spent an afternoon this past Fall at the Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco, and put a camera in the face of the most anticpated performers of the 2-day feastival, South Africa’s art-hip-hop group, Die Antwoord. We had so much footage of our time with the group that we broke it up into 3 parts.
We talk with Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er at the Treasure Island Music Festival to discuss their career, art, and favorite movies. And we watch them drink in an empty shipping container. “We make pop music, we’re pop artists,” Ninja tells us.
