A Certain Ratio - 1982

Out 31/03/23 on Orange Vinyl inc download code OR Limited  Smokey Vinyl inc download code


A Certain Ratio’s greatest strength has always been their unpredictability. They’ve always moved with gleeful disregard for
the boundaries of style and genre, their eye fixed firmly on constant progression. It’s an ethos that’s open-minded over all else, and that’s seen them take everything from experimental electronica to vintage funk, filtered through their own Mancunian lens.
And their latest studio album 1982 is no different in its unpredictable multidimensional nature. It shoots off in every direction, whether via searing Afrobeat, mind- melting jazz breakdowns or moody electronic experiments all with pop hooks and irresistible dance rhythms.
It might be called 1982, but it’s no nostalgia trip, fearlessly facing up to the future and running at it with full speed.
The album follows ACR Loco and EP:ACR in what is turning out to be the band’s most creative period, unmistakably ACR and unmistakably like nothing else.
