POSITIVE DANCEFLOOR PRESSURE COMING IN HARD!!! Sat Apr 25 - The South London Soul Train once again loads up the carriages, arms the funk, soul and bass canon's, greases the wheels of steel and sets off in search of the perfect break, beat and positive vibration. Your good time audio conductor in chief JAZZHEADCHRONIC joined by SLST too damn hot resident AJ KWAME (Afri-Ko-Koa) and one of the hottest bands out there right now - talking bout the positively stage storming, dancefloor tenderising soul & bass champions that are the Incredible DR MEAKER (Live) and very direct at the CLF Art Cafe.
Part of our ongoing weekly mission to seriously funk you up.
LEVEL 1 - DR MEAKER (LIVE)!!! - Band on stage around Midnight
“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.
