Die Antwoord, to the uninformed eye or ear, may come across as some German group akin to Scooter. However, the trio comes from Cape Town, and this cultural association influences much of their music in a style called Zef (an Afrikaans word translating somewhat loosely into "working class whites"), which utilizes out-of-date sounds in a modern way. Hence why "I Fink U Freeky" surges forward like the new Mortal Kombat song for 2012 (with elements of the techno classic "Jump" by the Movement.) You may recall Die Antwoord from their uber-kitschy track "Rich Bitch" which was both terrible and brilliant. "I Fink U Freeky" is a step up, and 100% more cohesive a track, but you may want to try to ignore the video which seems to make Yolandi Visser, the female singer, into the anti-Dev. Or maybe her neglected twin sister. We wonder if the destruction of the Beats heads phones is a dig on their former record label Interscope? Anyway, for the Scooter, Lords of Acid, and Nicki Minaj fans out there, enjoy!
