A Certain Ratio today release a new 4-track EP titled 2023, available on limited edition 12”
vinyl and as part of the new digital deluxe edition of 1982, via Mute.
The EP features a new track, ‘Day by Day’, recorded and written with Ellen Beth Abdi just
after the 1982 album session, alongside three recently commissioned remixes of tracks from
their latest album 1982, released in spring this year. Remixes are from close friend and
collaborator Andy Meecham, aka The Emperor Machine, who reworked ‘Constant Curve’,
Werkha, who remixed the BBC 6Music playlisted single ‘SAMO’, and Manchester producer
and vocalist Jade Parker’s previously unheard remix of ‘Waiting on a Train’ (feat. Ellen Beth
Abdi & Chunky) Jade Parker is a Manchester electronic producer and vocalist that ACR have
long admired, she focuses on down-tempo rhythms and soulful layered vocals, making the
EP a seamless extension of 1982.
