About this item
Erol Alkan inducts Joshua James into the sacred Phantasy halls. A fixture of London’s dedicated queer club scene, James maintains a trio of distinct residencies, including XOYO, the notorious 'Savage' parties, as well as fortnightly on Rinse FM. On this unapologetic and upfront track, the DJ-turned-producer instantaneously captures the raw energy and sexuality that underpin his life by night by welding together a highly kinetic and serpentine acid-electro-house banger. After twisting the erogenious regions on his 303 till its moans and sqwarks, James unloads a hefty cargo of electro-house beats, the odd boogie clap and rampant perc fx - the result broth certain to ignite fires across the more hedonistic and full throttle dancefloors across the globe. A personal weapon for James each week behind the decks, as well as for Phantasy founder, Erol Alkan, "Coarse" is a powerful dancefloor paean with only one (well, maybe two) things on its mind.
Having turned heads with his own uncompromising acidic perspectives on labels such as The Bunker NY, Phonica White and Honey Soundsystem, New York-based DJ and producer Justin Cudmore unfurls "Coarse" in a trippier, deeper direction, nonetheless still bumping in a style that subtly recalls the peak-time sound of classic 90s NYC clubs like The Tunnel.
