Winners of the Glastonbury Festival Unsigned Dance Act and fresh from a storming 2011 live schedule, Dr Meaker are now set to descend upon The BRITS 2012 in Laax, Switzerland with their incredible live show.
Tipped for great things by the likes of Zane Lowe, Huw Stephen and Rob Da Bank to name but a few, this 6 piece outfit will blow the Riders Palace Club away with a night of insanely infectious dance music which flirts effortlessly across D'n'B, Soul, Breaks, Dubstep and R'n'B.
Dr Meaker will also be DJing while in Switzerland, stay tuned for details...
Fresh from a summer of high-profile festival shows, including Glastonbury, Beach Break Live and Beat Herder, Dr Meaker release their new single Higher on November 17th .
This explosively infectious track builds on the Bristol-based collective’s highly acclaimed debut album A Lesson From The Speaker, an eclectic melting-pot of drum&bass, hip-hop, soul, reggae and jazz elements which saw them hailed as natural heirs to Bristol-scene ancestors like Massive Attack and Reprazent.
But Higher is another great leap forward, Dr Meaker’s most powerful anthem yet with its skillful fusion of liquid house beats, sinewy d&b rhythms, shuddering dubstep basslines and vivid brass fanfares, all swept along by Lorna King’s soaringly soulful voice.
An urgent call to the dancefloor, it combines the hyperkinetic energy of a classic rave track with the forward-thinking hybrid feel of contemporary British urban music. Warm-blooded and uplifting, Higher does exactly what it says on the tin.
UPDATE! New pics of the kit.
Here is a pic of my custom SQ2 drum kit in its packaging.
The guys at Sonor have been working hard building this amazing kit so thanks to them and also thanks to Paul Hemming and Robert Brian for their help in making this a reality.
