DIE ANTWOORD - UGLY BOY
ULTRA 2015'S TEN MOST EXCITING ACTS
Yep, South Africa’s wildest music crew is coming to UMF. This electronic hip-hop outfit rarely tours the United States and has never even played Miami. And it's unlikely you’ve ever seen anything so weird or wholly original in your life. Ninja, Yolandi, and DJ Hi-Tek represent Zef Side. Their band name translates to The Answer. And the question? As they'd snarl: “Whatever, man." Over the years, they've collaborated with Diplo and Aphex Twin. But they turned down the chance to tour with Lady Gaga, because they don't give a shit about being pop stars. See them in theaters today by buying movie tix for Chappie, the sci-fi thriller directed by District 9’s Neill Blomkamp, then catch their Saturday set on Ultra's live stage.
As she prepares to take on Hollywood in Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie, the Die Antwoord frontwoman talks about her unpredictable ascent to fame
Yo-landi Visser appears in the piano bar of an old-school west Hollywood hotel, looking like an albino gangster from another dimension. Wearing a sweater bearing the legend ‘BO$$’ in large green letters across the front, the Die Antwoord frontwoman perches on a leather armchair and orders coffee and fresh fruit. Guests sneak glances at her, no doubt wondering where this fragile-yet-formidable life form with a silvery white mullet, corresponding eyebrows and little girl voice sprang from. “I roll with bodyguards when I go back home to South Africa,” she says, looking around the room. “Like, full on. People want to fucking assassinate me.” It’s hard to imagine this five-foot tall mother of two should pose such a threat to the self-proclaimed torchbearers of decency and good taste in society. But that’s what happens when misfits succeed. Feathers get ruffled.
Visser, real name Anri du Toit, has fast become an unlikely pop-culture icon. Flipping between Lolita songbird vocals and thugged-out raps delivered in a blend of English and Afrikaans, she has broken every approved music industry convention en route to success with her bandmates, rapper Ninja and DJ Hi-Tek. Since exploding on the scene in 2010 with their viral video “Enter the Ninja”, Die Antwoord have compromised their vision for nobody, aiming to remain as “punk and fresh and kind of psycho” as possible. At the end of last year they confirmed their A-list clout with the cameoheavy video for “Ugly Boy”, with appearances by Jack Black, Marilyn Manson, Flea, the ATL Twins, an almost topless Dita Von Teese, and supermodel Cara Delevingne. Cheered on by the obsessive freaks and geeks that have claimed Die Antwoord as their own, they have become one of the world’s most visceral live acts, with crowds proclaiming their allegiance by chanting “zef, zef, zef” – an homage to the downwardly mobile South African street culture that inspired their favourite band’s trashy aesthetic.
Visser rarely grants interviews, and never solo interviews – until now. She prefers to remain an enigma; an elfin rave avatar whose life story remains relatively undiscussed. “I got irritated with people asking us the same questions,” she says. “Like, ‘Are you a real band?’ Journalists wanted to slay us, tried to cut us down, and I just started caring less and less about doing interviews. With Facebook and Instagram, you kind of don’t need to anyway. But now and again we’ll do something when there’s new information to share. Like now.”
