..:: Die Antwoord vs Jack Parow ::..




The revolution of Afrikaans music. This genre of music is known to be the least favorite, enjoyed by preference which meant it had a small following and only specific radio stations aired it. Many people hardly knew the artists or latest hits to say the least.




Enter Die Antwoord...


Listen Here:




This group totally revolutionalized afrikaans music and the 'interweb' as they call it. Many of their music videos have been uploaded on YouTube with majority of the lyrics being vulgar AND in afrikaans but also very humorous. The song titles range from "Enter the Ninja", "Wat kyk jy?" & "Wat pomp julle" to "Zef side" and "wie maak die jol vol"




Check Out Their website for more infoand videos...








Cooler as Ek...




Then we have Jack Parow of 'Cooler as ek' fame, a very hilarious song in afrikaans which everyone seemed to like. Major radio stations such as Yfm (which I never thought would actually playlist such) play that song till this day. The best lines of the song for me are: "Jy dink jy's cooler as ekke want jy rook Yves Saint Laurent sigarette" & "Jy dink jy's cooler as ek want jy's elke jaar by die J&B Met"




Catch him on MySpace for info and audio streaming...






So who really best represents die NEW skool of Afrikaans music?
