Hudson Mohawke shares full version of ‘Who Is America’ troll track
Hudson Mohawke has released the full track from his “troll” assist on Sacha Baron Cohen’s Who is America, and it’s eight ridiculous minutes long. The Scottish producer helped Cohen — who plays Ricky Sherman aka DJ 5olitary — get a booking at the Sway nightclub in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Together, they succeed.
The track is titled “Cell-by-date (feat. Steve, Derek and some bloke off the nonce wing),” and can be downloaded for free on SoundCloud. Mohawke’s arrangement of stabbing, sex noises, the crash of metal lunch trays on skulls is apparently what it takes to make it in today’s music industry. Try not to mind the full minute of a soundbite of “slash him, slash his face/ kill him/ stop fucking recording/ get him off me,” about seven minutes in. Of course, we’re happy for DJ 5olitary; it appears that he’s finally gotten the 14th chance he deserves, as noted on his Twitter profile. Enough drive, and he might be the next headlining act at EDC.
