Favorite ThisDie Antwoord - I Fink U Freeky (FreQ Nasty Remix)

Totally twisted, often grotesque, and utterly compelling, South Africa's Die Antwoord is easily the most bizarre act to achieve pop success in the states in recent memory. I can't remember Nicki Minaj posing with angel wings and a bloody heart. But Cape Town's pop-rap phenomenon has struck a chord with today's best EDM producers, seemingly 'The Answer' for stale, hip-hop samples. FreQ Nasty stumbled across Ninja, back when he was Waddy T Jones, when he was touring the Cape back in mid-2000's. He's watched the arc of their career with glee, calling their sound "leftfield pop genius." He certainly had no trouble putting his stamp on the single with a rowdy, latter-day dubstep drop, and a mid-cut tempo change. And is that an electro breakdown? Whoa, nelly! A little switchup from the King of the FreQs. This track has FreQ gettin' a little 'Freeky'...
