Hudson Mohawke’s ‘CBAT’ Is Going Viral

Just don't try banging to it...

Hudson Mohawke is enjoying a viral moment with his track ‘CBAT’.

The internet is a curious place sometimes…

A few days ago, an innocent young man decided to post about his sex life on Reddit – in particular, a song he enjoys listening to while getting his rocks off. He wrote: “There are a few songs to my playlist. However there is one song in particular, which actually happens to be my favourite, that my girlfriend hates and says turns her off in a major way.”

He added: “I don’t understand why it has taken her two years to tell me she hates that song, it’s a good love making song with good rhythm. I feel the way I fucked up is I could have possibly asked her previously if she likes the playlist or any songs she’d like to add/change. But to leave it for two years thinking our sex life is great but in her eyes has just been ruined by my music has left the whole situation feeling awkward and I’m a bit annoyed.”

But what could the song be? “I thought this song was perfect and I always thrust along with the tune and feel it gives me the perfect rhythm for doing the deed to. I usually bust to this song and find it devastating she hates the song.”

As it transpires, the track is Hudson Mohawke’s polyrhythmic wonker ‘Cbat’ – and the popularity of the Reddit post has sent it viral.

Currently storming its way across TikTok, garnering a total of more than 120 million views across a multitude of videos. Hudson Mohawke has embraced it:

The Scottish producer also updated his bio to read: ‘Cry Sugar’ is better for sex
