A Certain Ratio have announced a remix album, Loco Remezclada, which will be out November 5 via Mute. The album features songs from last year's ACR Loco and this year's trio of EPs, remixed by Dan Carey, Lou Hayter, The Orielles, LoneLady, Maps, Sink Ya Teeth, Skream, and more. “We took time to consider who we’d like to have involved, who we admired, who we love hanging out with, who we couldn’t wait to hear what they came up with,” say the band.

The first single from the record is Dan Carey's remix, as Mr. Dan, of "Down & Dirty," which features the late Denise Johnson on lead vocals and is on the ACR:EPA EP. Dan shoves the bass way up front, which takes the song deeper in the dirt and further onto the dancefloor. “A long time ago when I was a teenager, I was out in Manchester and spotted a poster that said something about A Certain Ratio remixed by Norman Cook," says Carey. "At the time I didn't really know what a remix was, who Norman Cook was, or who/what A Certain Ratio was, but somehow I knew it was worth investigating. As a result, I discovered ACR, figured out what remixes were, and started trying do my own. I’ve loved ACR ever since, and got pretty involved in production and remixing, so it meant a lot being asked to do this. It also meant a lot to work with one of the last vocal tracks that Denise recorded.”

You can listen to Mr Dan's remix of "Down & Dirty" below.

A Certain Ratio will be on tour in the UK and Europe in November and those dates are listed below.
