EDM culture has been trolled by Sacha Baron Cohen in his Who is America? show. You can watch an excerpt of it below.
A parody track produced by Hudson Mohawke featured as part of Sacha Baron Cohen’s sketch to get booked as a fake, ex-con character who wants to become an EDM star.
Cohen’s Rick Sherman character plays the track to real EDM promoter Jake Inphamous, who later books Cohen’s character to play at Sway nightclub in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Sherman, music alias DJ Solitary, is an ex-con who says he made the track using sounds recorded from inside prison, including “buggering” and “toilet flushes, people vomiting”.
Inphamous seems instantly impressed with the track, showering it with praise.
Watch the clip below, shared by Hudson Mohawke himself.
