We are proud to announce that we have a new Single called "DR MEAKER - Right Back ft. Sian Evans" to be released on V Recordings / Circus Records on the 3rd August 2014. 


Remixes are also available to pre order here

RIGHT BACK is currently playlisted on BBC Radio 1, BBC 1 Xtra and many other stations across the world.  It's all kicking off!


One of the most exciting live dance music acts to emerge from UK in recent years, Bristol's favourite bass music collective return along with Sian Evans (Kosheen and DJ Fresh) for 'Right Back'. V Recordings have teamed up with the mighty Circus Records for this landmark release - a winning combination of one of D&B's most well-respected imprints alongside one the most successful dance music labels of recent years. Circus have been instrumental in the explosion in UK bass music around the world, and alongside V with their reputation as pioneers drum & bass for the past 20 years combine to create the perfect platform for Dr Meaker's biggest release to date. With the weight of two varied yet equally renowned labels, 'Right Back’ ft Sian Evans promises to eclipse everything that's come before and stamp the Dr Meaker name firmly in the public consciousness. Splicing dirt with soul, this one promises to be the soundtrack for the summer.

A bonafide underground staple with huge crossover potential, Dr Meaker’s ‘Right Back’ is full of festival energy and shows all the signs of becoming a summer anthem, with its killer brass, vocals and classic funk sample (Dynasty’s ‘Adventures in the Land of Music’ as used by seminal hip hop crew Camp-Lo in the 90s).

Featuring the vocal talents of Sian Evans ‘Right Back’ comes ready with chart-topping pedigree, as her vocals have already smashed the charts on DJ Fresh’s # 1 hit ‘Louder’.

Spins and support are already heavy in clubland and on BBC radio, with Grooverider, Hazard, Doc Scott, Ray Keith, Clarky, Sigma, Hazard, Fred V & Grafix, Rudimental, Camo & Crooked, Roni Size, Fearne Cotton, Mistajam, Crissy Criss, Annie Mac, Sarah Jane Crawford, DJ Target, Huw Stephens, Adele Roberts, Phil Taggart and Alice Levine already on board.

Following two rapturous performances at this year’s Glastonbury Festival to huge crowds, Dr Meaker return with new single ‘Good Fight’, released on Circus records.
This huge, string-laden, gospel-influenced drum and bass classic in the making will rouse both emotions and dancefloors. Laurent John now fronts the Dr Meaker live show with his unique vocal sound. Dr Meaker have been working with the über talented Laurent John for the last 2 years and this is their triumphant debut collaboration, the first of many beautiful, unique compositions to come from this Bristol dream team.
Dr Meaker are currently finishing their first album for Circus Records which is due for release later in 2015, expect dirt, expect soul. “We’re really excited about how the record is sounding”, says Clive Meaker. “It will feature the high energy vocal drum and bass anthems we’re known for, but there will also be plenty of surprises in store, especially the variety of tempos, styles and moods that it will encompass.”
‘Good Fight’ follows Dr Meaker previous smash ‘Freaks’, which, as has come to be expected of the band, was all over the radio, gaining various playlists, record of the week slots and general high praise on  BBC stations Radio 1 and 1Xtra, plus Kiss, XFM and Capital XTRA.
‘Freaks’ also ubiquitous across raves, parties and festivals, having won the patronage of many DJs including Andy C, Friction, Jaguar Skills, B. Traits, Pendulum, Dieselboy, Futurebound, Shimon, Crissy Criss, Benny Page, Flux Pavilion & Annie Mac.
