Biography

Die Antwoord (, translation: "The Answer") is a South African rap-rave band formed in Cape Town in 2008. Fronted by vocalists Ninja and Yolandi Visser and backed up by an ever-changing cast of players going under the name DJ Hi Tek. Their image involves a counterculture movement called zef and the influence of photographer Roger Ballen.

Die Antwoord released their first album, $O$, online for free, and attracted international attention for their music video to "Enter the Ninja". After briefly signing with Interscope Records, they founded their own label in 2011, Zef Recordz, through which they released their second album, Ten$Ion. Die Antwoord's third album Donker Mag was released on 2 June 2014.
