Designed with sweatboxes and serious sound-systems in mind, Coarse wastes no time in establishing its rude intent; hammering jack-bass, orgasmic cut-up vocals and larger-than-life synth lines flirt expertly from the off, before the track descends into outright sleaze in the spirit the of gnarlier edge of acid-house. Only a series of breathless gasps indicate you’ve safely reached the other side. A personal weapon for James each week behind the decks, as well as for Phantasy founder, Erol Alkan, Coarse is a powerful dance floor paean with only one (well, maybe two) things on its mind.
