Dr Meaker

“Dr Meaker splices dirt with soul to fire up the soundsystem”

Dr Meaker are the hottest Live UK Dance act RIGHT NOW!

They started their journey as a Bristol based sound system comprising of electronic and acoustic musicians. The band soon built up a strong following and quickly gained the attention of the BBC resulting in a play of their popular track ‘Rubber Gloves’ on Rob da Bank’s BBC Radio 1 show.

Clive Meaker then successfully won funding from the BBC’s Urban Talent Bursary award scheme, which he used to fund the making of the bands debut album ‘A lesson from the Speaker’.

Following this funding triumph, Dr Meaker entered the Glastonbury Festival Unsigned Competition and were the outright winners of the Dance Music category.

“Fantastic!” – Michael Eavis

After winning the prized Glastonbury slot a flurry of gigs and festivals followed as the band released their first single 'Moving And Grooving’ in August 2007. The song featured Dr Meaker vocalist Lorna King and was mixed by Howie B at Miloco Studios, London.

Since then the band truly haven’t looked back. Dr Meaker now hailed as one of the most exciting live dance music acts in the UK and we truly can’t wait to witness them return to positively ignite the dancefloor and blow up the South London Soul Train Stage.
