If you don’t know who Die Heuwels Fantasties are by now then you might have been living under a rock in the middle of the desert for the past year or so. This Afrikaans electronic act have been touring around South Africa extensively this year. I saw them perform at Vanfokkingtasties (along with aKING, Fokofpolisiekar and Van Coke Kartel) in Hatfield Square in September of this year. Over the last few months they have been working on their 2nd album (which is due to be released in the first quarter of 2011). Die Heuwels Fantasties also released Doodgewone Aand earlier this year. The song was included on the Bakgat 2 Motion Picture soundtrack. The band have released a music video for their song Hyg Duiwel. The video features footage of the band’s tour of the Netherlands with Afrikaans rapper Jack Parow earlier in 2010. The song was released on their self-titled debut album last year.
It’s definately one of my favorite songs on the album. I can’t wait to hear their new songs. Die Heuwels Fantasties are definately one of my favorite South African acts.
