You might have to revisit the origins of The Boer War to understand the philosophical underpinnings of South Africa’s rap/rave/genre-unto-themselves group, Die Antwoord. Their music is hyper-sexual, primal, and likely to scare your dog into another room. It celebrates low culture even as it clings to an ideal that lies much higher, and uses shock value to shake people out of their daily routines.
