Chris Carter has shared the Radiophonic Workshop’s remix of ‘Blissters’, taken from the forthcoming EP, Chemistry Lessons Volume 1.1 Coursework. The new EP, out on 19 October 2018, also features remixes from Daniel Avery and Chris Liebing, plus a rare track, ‘Bongo Glow’, previously only available on the Japanese edition of the album.
Radiophonic Workshop have remixed very few artists but for this EP the recently reactivated pioneering electronic experimenters have reworked ‘Blissters’.
Chris Carter, talking about the remix, explains: “To say I felt honoured the Radiophonic Workshop wanted to remix one of my tracks would be an understatement – they are so highly regarded in the field of electronic music and have been such an influence on my work. But when I heard it I was blown away… it’s everything I thought it would be and more.”
Chris Carter recently shared the first details of a new box set of his early work, collating remastered (and mastered for the first time) solo albums alongside a disc of unreleased archival recordings from 1973-1977.

As a founding member of Throbbing Gristle alongside Cosey Fanni Tutti, Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Chris Carter has had a significant role in the development of electronic music – a journey which has continued through his releases as one half of Chris & Cosey and Carter Tutti and a third of Carter Tutti Void – as well as with his own solo and collaborative releases.
He is also credited with the invention and production of groundbreaking electronics – from the legendary Gristleizer self-built effects unit through to the Dirty Carter Experimental Sound Generating Instrument and the sold-out TG One Eurorack module (designed with Tiptop Audio, these modules can be heard during Carter’s set at a recent Rough Trade event) and the Future Sound Systems Gristleizer modules – Carter has created the means to make sounds as well as making the sounds themselves.
