Announce ACR:EPC

A NEW EP DEVOTED TO COLLABORATION, DEDICATED TO ANDREW WEATHERALL

FEATURING THE EMPEROR MACHINE, JACKNIFE LEE, MARIA UZOR (SINK YA TEETH) AND CHRIS MASSEY

FESTIVAL DATES AND TOURING THROUGHOUT 2021

A Certain Ratio announce the second EP in a series of three, ACR:EPC – out on 2 July 2021 on cornflower blue vinyl and digitally: https://mute.ffm.to/acrepc

The new EP, which focusses on the art of collaboration and is dedicated to Andrew Weatherall, launches today with ‘Emperor Machine’. ACR and The Emperor Machine’s collaboration came about after a chance meeting at an Andrew Weatherall Weekender outside Todmorden’s infamous Golden Lion. Andrew Meecham (aka The Emperor Machine) explains, It was Martin who suggested we should maybe collaborate so I sent him a track I’d been working on and when I received the track back, I’ve got to be honest, I was a bit nervous because I’m an ACR fan and wanted to be so perfect. I put my headphones on, pressed play and it totally blew me away. It was just what I was hoping for and more.”

ACR are long-time fans – Jez and Martin often include The Emperor Machine in their DJ sets – and describe the track asa perfect collaboration of ACR & The Emperor Machine.”

Watch the video, by Groovy Chaos, here:

Andrew Weatherall, who was in part responsible for the band reigniting, sadly passed away before they they were able to collaborate. ‘The Guv’nor’ is the band’s tribute to the titan of the dance scene who had long championed ACR and memorably said, “I had the German army vest, the big shorts, thought I looked like I was in A Certain Ratio, actually looked like Don Estelle in It Ain’t Half Hot Mum.’ (Andrew Weatherall, Guardian 2016). Written soon after his unexpected death in early 2020, ACR expand, “What an honour it is for us to have influenced someone who has inspired so many DJs, producers and artists. At our last gig with him in Birmingham in 2019 we discussed a possible collaboration, but sadly it never came about when he was taken from us all so suddenly. His spirit and inspiration are all over this track.”

YoYoGrip’ is the perfect marriage of two tracks from the band’s latest album, ACR Loco.

ACR, explain, “On this track, Jacknife Lee combines ‘YoYo Gi’ and ‘Get A Grip’ (feat. Maria Uzor) and gives them a new life in a new happy home, adding his own vocals and taking the tracks’ totally different tempos and keys, joining them up perfectly.”

The final track is a collaboration with Manchester remixer, producer, DJ, promoter and label head, Chris Massey. The band and Massey collaborated in 2019 after Massey remixed their single ‘Dirty Boy’ and this track is a mix of Massey’s ‘Music Control’. The band explain, “We have stripped the song right down and reworked this version (‘Musik Kontrol’) into an ACR-meets-you-on-the-dancefloor groover.”
