DIE ANTWOORD MIXTAPE!!!



South African Rap/Rave duo Ninja and Yolandi Visser , known as Die Antwoord (The Answer) are back with a new mix tape, 'Suck On This'! They are wild and crazy as usual with loads of guests and their normal partner in crime DJ Hi-Tek.

If you like them already, you will love this.

This is totally not safe for uninitiated.

It's an acquired taste for sure.



In their own words...

"Hi my name is NINJA. I'm from South Africa. I rap in a band called DIE ANTWOORD with my home girl ¥O-LANDI VI$$ER.

Our style is a little unusual, and we don't really know what's going on with anything because we from out of town, but we love learning and trying new shit out.

DIE ANTWOORD are busy finishing up the new album we been working on for the last 2 years called WE HAVE CANDY that we made with THE BLACK GOAT and GOD in the SOUL ASSASSINS studios in Los Angeles.

So anyway, about 2 months ago we found out that rappers in the USA usually drop a free mixtape for their fans before they drop their album. So we thought, "Hey we wanna do that!"

THE BLACK GOAT showed us how you make a mixtape which was so fuckin fun! And we decided to call our 1st mixtape SUCK ON THIS! 

THE BLACK GOAT said that there are no rules to making a mixtape and that you can do whatever you want, which is our favourite style.

THE BLACK GOAT also told us that mixtapes often have remixes on them.

DIE ANTWOORD has never allowed anyone to remix any of our songs, ever!

So, we quickly popped out some fresh NEW tracks for our mixtape, and we also thought it would be really special to ask THE BLACK GOAT and GOD to remix some of our old shit.

We thought it would be a fun discipline to remix our most popular shit and make the remixes better than the originals, which was a seemingly impossible task, but you know how we roll

So kick back, pop some shamps or crack a brew, spark a fat blunt, and SUCK ON THIS

love NINJA"

Check it out!














Here is the video to "I Fink Your Freeky'.

Scratch Bandits Crew



Fresh and forward thinking experimental Hip-hop from France.

In their own words...

"The Scratch Bandits Crew is a new approach to scratching; Supa-Jay, Geoffresh and Syr are three hip-hop pirates who love to sail strange seas.

No samples from dusty old vinyls; these three scratch explorers really do write their own tracks. They play or get played the sounds they want to use, and from that they dive into the construction of their original compositions.

They also play with voices, soul, hip-hop or funk, making surrealist collages outlining tall tales.
The Scratch Bandits marry analogue and digital, acoustic and electronic in their own unique musical signature.

And at the other end of the anchor chain, they also develop their own personal scratch tools: extraordinary inventions like the scratch guitar and the darbuka-lamp, or even the lunar scratch, a prototype “scratch controlled instrument” which is the only one of its kind in the world. Then there are new electronic stringed instruments which transform shows into hybrid, mutant events."

This is slick and groovy as hell!
