Thank you so much to everyone who has bought our new Dr Meaker single ‘Right Back’ so far! We are currently no.85 in the official UK charts at the mid-week stages and are no.19 in the Dance charts! We are really hoping to get into the Top 40 this Sunday, we have a lot of work to do but if everyone could spread the word and get people to buy the single it would really help and maybe we could get higher!

DR MEAKER – RIGHT BACK – CIRCUS RECORDS / V RECORDINGS – 3RD AUGUST
PRE-ORDER HERE: Single: http://bit.ly/RightBackSingle
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’. Splicing dirt with soul, this one promises to be the soundtrack for the summer. 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 of the Drum & Bass sound 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.
Dr Meaker’s Right Back has all the signs of being a summer anthem, with brass, vocals and classic funk sample (Dynasty ‘Adventures in the Land of Music’ as use by seminal Hip Hop crew Camp-Lo in the 90’s) combining for a track that’s full of both integrity and festival energy. Featuring the vocal talents of Sian Evans, Dr Meaker’s Right Back comes ready with chart-topping pedigree, having recently smashed up the chart with DJ Fresh – showing she can mix it up in any genre. Spins and support from already across club land and BBC Radio with Fearne Cotton, Nick Grimshaw, Mistajam, Crissy Criss, Annie Mac, Sarah Jane Crawford, DJ Target, Huw Stephens, Adele Roberts, Phil Taggart & Alice Levine already on the go, Right Back is just what the Doctor ordered.
Hailing from Bristol, the spiritual home of live Drum & Bass, Dr Meaker have broken the mould with their unique fusion of sounds earning them fans across the globe. Attracting attention from the legendary selector and label boss Bryan Gee, it wasn’t long before Dr Meaker teamed up with V Recordings for two soulful slices of Drum and Bass. Their 1Xtra playlisted ‘Music In The Night’, ‘Fighter’ and ‘Dont Think Its Love’ followed which picked up 1.5 million hits online plus 50 plays on Radio1, Kiss Fresh, Unity and Ministry of Sound playlists. The seminal sounds of Bristol form the basis of the newest Bristolian sound system to shake the scene hark back to the formative years of V Recordings, adding their own euphonious twist.
