2023 EP

A Certain Ratio return with a brand new 4-track EP set for release on limited edition 12” vinyl and digitally on 22 September 2023. The new release follows their latest album 1982 (released in spring this year), and includes three newly commissioned remixes of tracks from the album, alongside a brand-new track ‘Day by Day’, written and recorded with Ellen Beth Abdi – a seamless extension of 1982 to complete their playfully named 2023 EP.

Listen to the first track to be shared, a remix by fellow Mancunian and recent tour mate, Werkha, (Tom Leah) who has taken on one of the stand out singles from 1982. ‘SAMO’, named after Jean-Michael Basquiat and Al Diaz’s first art project, spent 4-weeks on the BBC 6Music playlist: https://youtu.be/1CglgYnf1h0

Elsewhere on the EP, close friend Andy Meecham, aka Emperor Machine reworks ‘Constant Curve’, the album track he originally co-wrote and contributed keyboards and electronic percussion to, while Manchester producer Jade Parker remixes ‘Waiting on a Train’ (feat. Ellen Beth Abdi & Chunky).
