Sludge Release Meaker1

DR MEAKER - IN MY SOUL - I DREAM OF YOU

We are very proud to announce that we have signed our first release of 2012 to Sludge Records.

Sludge Records is owned by DJ Deekline & Ed Solo and has a massive following on the dubstep scene.  The single contains 2 brand new Dr Meaker tracks and both tracks feature the band's front Lady Lorna King on vocals.

SLUDGE RECORDS - PRESS RELEASE

Continuing to drop the biggest bass around, Sludge Records enlist Bristol-based live act and production crew for their latest release.


'In My Soul' combines haunting piano lines and emotive strings to great effect, painting a beautiful backdrop that's contrasted perfectly by Dr Meaker's larger than life basslines. Undoubtedly a party starter, this one will have any dance floor jumping when it's dropped!

Backing that up is 'I Dream Of You', a slightly more downtempo number that's oozing with effortless musical class. Gentle and sparse beats are topped with gorgeous vocals and hints of bubbling bass that make this ideal for late night clubs and at-home afterparties alike. 

Dr Meaker will be hitting the European festival circuit hard this year, captivating audiences with their incredible live show.

V RECORDINGS PRESS RELEASE:

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.
